Just saw this unbelievable local story on the BBC news channel.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/tyne/8061765.stm

A guy goes for car tax at our local DVLA centre with his new MOT.

The cops are called and he gets arrested for alleged false documents.
The staff were suspicious because the MOT was a paler green! WTF!

After his full dna, photo and prints were taken they realised their mistook and said sorry.

AND then he had to go back to DVLA office to back of queue.

I thought it was an April 1st joke but it aint April 1.

I'd heard recently that the cops will now keep all of 'customers' personal details dna etc even if they are innocent.

Can't put this in the rant section but this is utter madness and I'd be incandescent with rage and sue their ass off. Human rights my arse - it's a police state I tells ya.

JJ

ps can you refuse all that id stuff at the cop shop until any alleged offence is more formally declared? They'd have to hold me down that's for sure.

That can take all day. When used to use our local DVLA for work, the local kids used to go in there & take the tickets for the queue, & then sell them !
For a couple of quid, you could save 2 hours !

The queue system is all to do with targets for 'service' . My local office would take 3-6 hours waiting. So they simply stopped counter application for new regs..now they meet their targets for counter service,however they are not now meeting targets for postal applications . Really ?? No shit Sherlock.
