We're all kiddie fiddlers, apparently
So, everyone is a potential kiddie fiddler then. According to the government anyway. In order to keep the leetle cheeldren safe everyone who helps out in any way with kids activities is to get a criminal record check or face the penalty of a £5000 fine.
So, if your child is in the local under 12's football team and they have an away game you are not allowed to help out by driving a couple of his team mates to the fixture. Even if the kids are pals with your kid or you are friends of the family. You need to have had a 'check' done on you. It's for the cheeldren's safety, you understand.
True to form, the good old government point at the bogeyman to scare the sheeple into compliance and whilst doing so whisper in your ear that it could be YOUR CHILD the bogeyman is interested in.
And when they have gathered all the data the memory stick containing millions of peoples details will be lost or left on a train. Probably.
