It's part of Broken Britain.
CRB checks are wholly inappropriate and the legislation and system MUST be abolished immediately:
A. It'll cut overheads – which we can't afford
B. Criminal activities in Britain are dealt with by the Justice system. CRB checks are indicative of the failed justice system we have. Get that fixed and CRB checks will not be necessary.
C. It works on the 'guilty until proven innocent' basis – opposing traditional British Justice
D. Everyone is penalised (initially) for misdemeanours of the few.
