"The European Criminal Records Information System will set out the technical specifications so that police can get easy-to-use records from forces in other countries."

You just know this will end up with them printing the requested criminal records off and popping them in the post after the software to allow interchange comes in 5 times over budget and still doesnt work.

The upgrade will be to fax them then send the hardcopy in the post.

Missed acronym opportunity

"European Criminal Records Information System"

I sincerely hope the Des O'Connor discs are an unwanted present.

If you purchased them voluntarily and of your own free will then either you should be sectioned for your own safety, or you should cut back on the use of exotic substances.

I can think of no other (or indeed ANY) rational explanation.

How does that work then?
