No2ID: Database state "not scrapped enough"

"From medical confidentiality and the right to opt out of the Summary Care Record to the unlawful retention of innocent people's profiles on the DNA database; from snooping on communications data (your phone, e-mail and browsing records) to rampant government sponsored data trafficking, such as was proposed in Clause 152 of the Coroners & Justice Bill; from highlighting the dangers of population registers and systems like Contactpoint to pressing for more meaningful control over our own personal information - NO2ID must go on."
