A Nation of Suspects
Nanny's obsession with registering us all on some form of database is not abating.
In her view if she can't do it openly, via her much ridiculed id card scheme, then she will do it by sleight of hand via other more nefarious means. Her solution is elegant and simple.
These are occupations that, in Nanny's view, will require the volunteer/employee to register on a database for vetting by an Orwellian named "Committee of Public Safety". This committee would have absolute power of veto over anyone attempting to work in the "prescribed occupation".
The government estimate that their plans for this will affect over 11 million people, The Register estimates the figure is over 14 million.
The prescribed occupations cover both formal volunteers (eg anyone working with kids or the vulnerable) and many types employees (eg teachers, school caretakers etc). I would note that the default mechanism (ie mission creep) on many job adverts now is for a CRB check to be performed, therefore the net for prescribed occupations is growing larger.
You have been warned, one way or another Nanny will have her database!
