CQC advises GPs to protect their ID after rise in identity theft

Comment

I wonder if at some time in the not too distant the future, through a combination of childhood indoctrination, government diktat and sheer laziness, when we have succeeded in transferring all human interaction on line, that we will come to realise it hasn’t actually saved us any money at all. Replacing free face to face human contact with expensive computer aided data transfer, as a means to “simplify our lives” , on the face of it , when you take it for what it is...is absolutely bound to be a monumental waste of human kinds time and energy. We’re going to have to start spending some serious money on policing all this...as it is, it’s taken as ‘free’...it patently obviously is not. We all need to buy a expensive computer, pay for broadband and get mobile phone for starters. My mouth came attached to me at birth and I operate it for the cost of the occasional cheese sandwich and the odd roll of toilet paper. It doesn’t need a virgin media account and it can never get disconnected.
