Good point

I wonder if Mr Webb [former head of Police IT Organisation] can think back in time, reminisce, and remember his childhood, then growing up as a teenager, the games they played, the stunts he and his chums pulled, the high jinks and tomfoolery.

What kind of person would he think he would be today if those growth years had been taken away and stifled, where virtually everything he did was potentially a criminal act, from playing tag in the playground, hopscotch on the pavement, to accidentally dropping a packet of Smiths crisps while he tried to get the salt out of the blue bag under a camera with speakers, would he have grown up with the same views and enthusiasm for these databases.

    I can’t get the link to work. Is it OK, or is it me?

    You were right – I tried it in a different browser and it finally worked.
