"It was Junior Civil Servant X, after all, who reportedly downloaded the data of 25 million people onto two unencrypted discs and dispatched it by internal mail to the National Audit Office. Witless, yes: but such data had been sent that way before. For the Government to blame a low-level employee for this fiasco is a bit like allowing a teenage work experience girl access to the nuclear button, and then bleating that she had 'clearly not followed strict rules' when she reached for her skinny latte and accidentally wiped out Tajikistan." —Jenny McCartney
