disgusting exercise in bad faith
"Researchers who need access"

The tories want their mates to make money out of data that was collected for other purposes (this _has_ to be something for the ICO - oh wait...) and lucrative directorships await the political scumbag and associated penpushers who pull the scam off.

enough of the bollocks
hacking milly dowler's voice mail or repeating police lies about bristolian landlords has got fuck all to do with freedom of the press.
Google arrange not to pimp students data = they get a piece of the action. No problem, job done.
In other news,
id cards passports to be compulsory.
