“In an age of austerity, and a climate of fear about child abuse, perhaps it is unsurprising that social workers have turned to new technology for help.

Local authorities – which face spiralling demand and an £800m funding shortfall – are beginning to ask whether big data could help to identify vulnerable children.

Could a computer program flag a problem family, identify a potential victim.”

An invaluable tool within the sex-abuse industry’s armoury I would have thought, being able to predict which human beings a child comes into contact with are the child abusers, even though such people have never have touched a child. A bit like labelling all minor-attracted individuals as child sex abusers. Yet another nail gets driven into the coffin that was once societal cohesion.”

They’re never going to learn…are they?…

…It’s all “wonderful and lovely”…until the day somebody else’s “bright idea” plops itself into your life…and royally screws you over.

So…are they going to start dictating who, statistically, pops a boner for children?
