Baby ICA – ContactPoint’s first case
by David Moss
In six days time, on 30 March, the Identity Cards Act (ICA) will be three years old.
In any normal family, that would be an occasion for joy.
But the Identity & Passport Service (IPS) is not a normal family. The social workers have been sniffing around, the schools arent happy with the childs progress, many medical agencies have reservations, the police are involved and the neighbours have been suspicious for some time. Baby ICA is about to be taken away from his natural parents, and fostered.
Current news releases
IPS has failed the governments parenting tests. Baby ICA is moving home. No more IPS. No more Home Office. Hello the Department for Transport. Hello the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
And as the child moves, we shall have to move, too. No more Jacqui Smith to deal with. Now its hello Peter Mandelson for us, Baron of Hartlepool and Foy, Malfoy.
IPS just werent up to the job. Theres nothing to show for all the years of their involvement.
Will Malfoy succeed where four Home Secretaries and two Permanent Secretaries have failed? Will he make a better father? You be the judge.
PS A copy of the following email was sent to me, presumably by mistake:
From: Sir Gus ODonnell
* Believed to be a reference to the Home Secretary
