Idiots. Utter, unbelievable, jaw-dropping, unpardonable idiots. It is beyond farce, past comprehension, criminally irresponsible and beneath contempt.

Way to go Alice Miles, personally I was speechless after first hearing that the bunch of incompetents known collectively as the UK government had managed to lose an entire dump of the Child Benefits system, on DVDs, in the mail.

So many questions. Why an entire dump? Why was this on DVDs? Why was this sent through the ordinary mail? How come idiots like this are even allowed through the front gates, never mind given employment in such offices?

The sheer volume of data. Why do they keep records that are no longer extant? Why are records from other systems included?

They are currently claiming that the file is password protected. I would suggest the password, if it actually exists, (because I think that is just a downright lie,) is probably written on a post-it along with the disks. Yet, lets be charitable and look at the evidence: a dump to a CSV file, covering two DVDs, with a password protecting the file. Strongly suggests a spanning zip file. Yeah, like a password is any protection there!
