Government enlists public service 'spies'

Grinning harridanHazel Blears, Blair's mini-me, has drawn up plans for local government officials to be given access to police intelligence in an effort to reduce anti-social behaviour:

James Welch, legal director of Liberty, said: "Police intelligence is highly sensitive and can be very dangerous if it falls into the wrong hands. It should only be disclosed on an absolute need-to-know basis. Wardens do not receive the same specialist training that police do. Why is such sensitive information, seemingly irrelevant to their work, being given to them?"

Especially worrying when you bear in mind that some of that 'intelligence' amounts to speculation, information about the sexual activity of Under-16s and trivial data on who has been playing ball-games in the street.
