Shock, MP's try and make a fuxx in the only thing that is left to them.

They are already in the stick for the digitial britain fiasco (everyone has to be scanned, brought in by a non-elected person 1 week before election) and phorm (never resolved) so who is really gonna wonder why MP's kick off now?

Jobs worth perhaps because next year boundaries change and some are going to disappear, and because no one cares about them??????

He said that, if his office fulfilled the minimum duties required of them in the Regulation, they would in fact be seeking a 56% increase in funding amounting to £8.4 million. A more realistic estimate, given the new duties being imposed, could well turn out to be £28 million. The Commissioner said, memorably I think, "This system cannot work. Nobody will pay for it."

My question is: how will the Government fund the additional resources estimated at a minimum of £8.4 million that the Information Commissioner’s Office will require?"
