Everyone should take back as much of their anonimity now, before its too late. When buying anything from places like PCworld etc, dont give them your name, address when they ask.

"This country would get back on it's feet easily by reintroducing stigma on having children when you cannot look after them, being willingly on the jobseekers allowance and crying that your back hurts when there are people out there who are actually disabled and still manage to work.
the ramblings of somebody that only repeats what he hears, rather than researching facts.
if you researched facts you'd find that it is impossible to claim jobseekers allowance and claim you are unable to work due to a bad back, if you did so you would NOT be entitled to it.
also you assume people cannot afford to look after their children, this fact goes against wanting to be on jobseekers or any other benefit by choice
, why would you want to go on benefits when you make it clear you would not beable to support your family on it? but then you change your stance(in the rest of your post) to add these people must have huge t.v.s and beable to afford every luxury going.
you also make the error of assuming people were never able to afford looking after their children. not true, you fail to realise people had jobs before they became unemployed and were able to support their children, untill they lost their job.
as for people finding work, you are aware there are more and more people and not so many jobs at the moment, due to current circumstances? even if jobs were in abundence, the picture that is painted of the unemployed dos'nt exactly give employers confidence in employing somebody who is unemployed, no instead they would rather appoint somebody who already has a job. it's not hard to see whos to blame for that being the prefered method by many employers.
i mean if i read your comments and believed them, and i owned my own company, i would'nt be employing the unemployed any time soon, only as a last result. i'd much rather employ somebody who is already in work to avoid getting one of those lazy lay abouts who have no intention of working.
sorry if this post is off topic, but i thought the policy of ATS was to deny ignorance.

This database isnt just a list of stuff, there will be a secondary database made from the first one which is easily searchable. Then they can 'profile' people using points like your credit rating or even profile your personality like a teen magazine.
THe possibilities are limited only to the sql programmers abilities. Why the need to keep a list of those to be rounded up, when you can compile one in less than a day?
