The security fears are fuelled further by the admission that information about the children of celebrities and politicians is likely to be excluded from the system.

Also how much more easier it would be to frame people for crimes if the government had everybody's DNA, they could just accuse anyone of anything and say that they have undisputable DNA evidence to back up their claims.
you misunderstand the way DNA is now stored.
The article you quoted from the Times was discussed at some length on another thread and shown to be a serious distortion of the truth here
The UK is a "surveilance state" and it's population will never recognise, due to shallow appeasement, over indulgence and self-centredness, the subtle transitions that are pushing us into the aformentioned "police state".
I can't help noticing that you still haven't backed up the nonsense about DNA profiling of unborn babies or forced medication. While you're doing that you might like to try to find any evidence to support the daft statement that "nearly all problematic children today are mass medicated with antidepressants"

the judge was also recommending that every single visitor comming into the U.K will also be added to the database.. no matter what country you are from.

If you think being under complete control of a blatantly sleazy, corrupt government is progress then you can count me out.
As for mass medication, I suggest you look around on ATS. There's plenty of threads on the issue.
If the information is easy to find I imagine you will be able to point it out to me but at the moment you still seem unable to support another wildly overstated claim which does nothing to enhance your credibility.

The fact is that our society has progressed and will continue to progress despite occasional interference from those whose morals are questionable.
If you want to speculate about other uses for the data that's fine and as the judge and I and many others on this thread have said the control of such use would indeed be a serious problem.

I dont think anything I say will make any difference because you obviously have a different viewpoint and will continue to do so no matter what.
We've gotten along just fine for thousands of years without having these control measures imposed, so why now? Why must we all be catalogued and classified by those who are supposed to serve us and the country?
