Guardian paid by government for data sharing supplement, now writes glowing report

The Guardian has a servile piece on the Children's Database being set up on the UK's 12 million young people. The feature quotes only one critical voice, despite the growing opposition to the scheme (and the recent publication by the Information Commissioner of our report that the scheme will likely harm children as well as illegally invade their privacy.)

Could this be anything to do with the recent supplement on the scheme published by the Guardian with financial support from the government, who were given a right of veto over the journalists used?
