Ministers are to trim the number of DNA profiles on a national database by up to 850,000 after a court ruled innocent people must be removed.
Thank God for that, because just as with the Gurkhas, the government seemed determined to ignore what they were told and do what they wanted anyway.
Those arrested, but later released or acquitted, will have their profiles wiped after between six and 12 years.
Oh well, I suppose I can follow their example. I'll withold my council and road tax, and when they come calling I'll tell them I will pay, within the next six to twelve years. How much water do you think that would hold?
