Loss of data – personal liability in the private sector

There are severe penalties for private organisations which lose data – not so for the public sector. The Inland Revenue & other departments have lost millions of personal details, with little or no consequences.

Allow a 16 & 17 year olds to take on a tenancy agreement

Individuals under age of 18 are not allowed to hold an interest in land. 16 year olds are allowed to leave school and find work. They can live independently from their families. They can fight (and die) for their country. They are allowed to bear children, yet they are not allowed to hold a tenancy agreement.

This is hampering their independent living (if they choose it), and a curse to landlords (especially the uninformed ones).

Allow 16 & 17 year olds to be responsible and accountable. They may surprise you.
