NO ACCESS TO DVLA by PRIVATE COMPANIES or INDIVIDUALS

Parking on 'private' land is followed by fines and clamps being levied on 'offenders' by private organisations. It is clear – at least in big cities – that this has nothing to do with people abusing private land and has everything to do with making money. If people want to stop others from entering private roads, land, etc they can install barriers or place guards – as it is in the countryside for example. By and large such schemes in London more or less lure people to use them, then clamp or when this is not possible as motorist leaves, go to DVLA for personal details and pursue for money. The state is being used for private extortion of money under clear false pretences. Licensing clampers is not the option. It only legitimises extortion.

Why is this idea important?

Make Ofcom enforced PIN for movies on Pay TV opt-in

I've been adviseed the PIN I must enter to watch movies at certain times on my Pay TV is foreced on Sky and Virgin by Ofcom

This should be optional for those that want it (and have kids).

Apparently it is to protect the children (oh the chirldren).  Well I dont have any so why is the government prying into my home to tell me I must use a PIN to protect non-existent children.

If I buy a beer to put in my fridge should I now also have a PIN on the fridge to protect the non-existnet children in my house from getter to the beer?

Agree there are those that may want this for their family, and the regulation should thus allow an Opt-In ability so those that want it can have it.

But what of those children who will find a way to opt-out thier dads Pay TV?  Well if they work that out then they surely already know the PIN anyway and would already be watching all those bad movies  but with the parents thinking they are safe as the PIN protects everyone.
