Six Flags fingerprinted my son without consent, says mom. Y'know, this biometric case has teeth, say state supremes...

Re: Thank you!

For me, primarily your last sentence. This is most certainly a can of worms that needs to be opened. No one needs to be fingerprinting kids. If you agree to that then you agree to opening the can.

Your comments are not the same.

Re: "unreserved apologies"

Wrong, clinical audit is carried out by CCGs, NICE and the NHS Counter Fraud Authority etc. Do you not want care commissioning bodies to confirm that GPs really are carrying out 200 minor operations per day, or that one of the patients in your area really did receive care in the Outer Hebrides? Shouldn't we check that a particular surgeon has a higher patient mortality rate or that particular treatments\medications actually work when we pay for them?

Re: The rule I proposed

No it wouldn't. There would be errors in that too.

Given to you by default? An annual report or after every hospital stay? Who will pay for the report to be generated and sent out? Hardcopy, of course, unless you expect granny to login and view the electronic version.

Re: ...shared with research companies and clinical audits

Clinical audits are carried out by other areas of the NHS. The Fraud Division and PCTs - or whatever they are called now.

Well, there's the biggest load of tripe I'll read this week.

NHS systems fell offline for 1,300+ hours over 36 months, cyber-nasties fingered – FoI study

Re: 85% uptime?!

At the extreme that could be 1 PC down for 54 days, in three years, which would be irrelevant across the whole NHS. Without knowing exactly what systems were affected, and to what extent, it's impossible to say how bad the availability was.

Senior judge: Put AI in charge of reviewing social media evidence

"In another and more straightforward rape case, where complainant and defendant met on Tinder and there were only two mobile phones to consider, 150 officer hours were required to examine 20,000 items of data,"

Perhaps, if the police had been able to review the 20,000 items more swiftly, there wouldn't be the need for a defence, as no charges would be brought?
