Men with a record of domestic violence would be prevented from using the internet to meet unsuspecting women under plans being considered by the Home Secretary, Theresa May.Oh, for…
The Home Office said yesterday that the Police National Database could be used to keep watch on contacts made by men with violent pasts.How? Never mind anything else, just how is this supposed to be done? With all those cuts to the police that are going to have to be made?
The announcement is in response to a campaign led by the former Labour cabinet secretary, Hazel Blears, after the murder of Clare Wood, 36, in Salford, Lancashire, in 2009. Ms Wood met her killer, George Appleton, through Facebook.

Is everyone insane? Surely, the ConDems aren’t bound by any nonsense thought up by the former government, are they?
