Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Those readers who are following the magnificent meanderings of UK home secretary David Blunkett as he moves the UK inexorably towards voluntary/compulsory ID cards in an attempt to stem the tide of swan-roasting illegal immigrant members of al-Qaeda who threaten the very fabric of our society will certainly enjoy Chris Applegate's David Blunkett Policy Maker.

This nifty piece of programming is designed to deliver "draconian rhetoric, whenever you want it", and can instantly formulate a Blunkett-style policy guaranteed to make Britain a safer, more loving place. For example:

Give refugees a 'Citizenship test', and then deny them the right to trial by jury. And charge them for it.

Quite right too. Applegate warns users that: "The random generator can generate actual policies that Blunkett has launched. I take no responsibility for any distress caused by sudden realisation of the truth, nor any feelings of fear, doom etc. for one's own civil liberties." You have been warned. ®
