I really wish they'd get RISUG properly tested and into production.

RISUG is the birth control method you linked to...

The Conservative website says that membership is £25/yr. or am I missing something?

I was just about to post the same thing. Glad it's not just me who's missing it, whatever it is.

In fairness, I don't think "owning a computer" could be sufficient - however, it doesn't look like a good time to be a security consultant, does it? Which will make computer security laxer, ironically. (Which may be the intended results, given how much easier it'll make universal government surveillance.)

A certain state-owned bank has just demanded, through a weaselly intermediary, that our company needs to do full employment screening of anyone involved with that bank's data, including CRB checks and credit reference checks. The threat is that we won't get the bank's business any more if we don't. And the bank in question accounts for about 10% of our turnover.

As we've just installed a new open CRM system, that basically means everyone in the organisation. And I've grumbled and snarled and growled, but basically I brought in my passport and polling card today to prove I'm really the person I claimed to be two years ago at the interview. I feel like Gerard Depardieu signing a statement that there are no Jews in his family in Le Dernier Metro...

I could fill many many posts with eye-rolling at the current practices of the state-owned bank in question, and as I'm fairly anonymous on DW, I actually might. Put it this way, it'll be a cold day in hell before taxpayers get back our untold billions. I had two meetings in Bishopsgate (oh dear, I've rather given them away) this week with separate parts of the bank, and came away with totally different messages on so many levels.

On the screening, who knows what the point is, but we think we're going to see more of it from banks, even the non-state-owned ones. It's the way the world is going.

Yeah, we're getting the same from banks, full CRB, credit reference checks, etc.

State-owned and fully-private, old, and only-just-granted a banking licence.

We've been allowed to not-screen staff who have been employed continuously by us for the last N years (N=5, this week, I think; has been anything from 2 to 7).

This means I'm not affected unless I change jobs, at which point I'd have to admit all my terrible secrets.
