Clegg And Blue Touchpaper

Although it's in my blogroll, I don't actually look at the Light Blue Touchpaper blog very often. It's from security research scientists at the Cambridge University Computer Laboratory.

But I did have a look this week and what do I see? "


Liberal Democrat leader visits our lab


This week, Nick Clegg, leader of the UK Liberal Democrat Party, and David Howarth, MP for Cambridgeshire, visited our hardware security lab for a demonstration of Chip & PIN fraud techniques.

They used this visit to announce their new party policy on protections against identity fraud. At present, credit rating companies are exempt from aspects of the Data Protection Act and can forward personal information about an individual’s financial history to companies without the subject’s consent. Clegg proposes to give individuals the rights to “freeze” their credit records, making it more difficult for fraudsters to impersonate others.


A party leader visiting a lab? Make's a pleasant change from reading about creationist US politicians, doesn't it?

Not all Creationists are like Palin :-) I'm a brunette but I don't wear lipstick or shoot mousse for dinner! (Plus my politics are entirely different- but I guess you knew that already!)

Yes of course I meant moose.
