Well Done Newcastle!

No this isn't a comment about Newcastle's surprisingly entertaining win over Celtic last night (4-1 if anyone's interested, and Luque scored twice!), but more a congratulation aimed at Newcastle City Council.

Obviously keen to show that they are at least as capable as the RBOS & HSBC in releasing confidential details of their clients, they've let the credit and debit card records of 54,000 people be displayed on t'internet for all and sundry to view.

As reported on the BBC they only discovered this when an independent expert was hired to check the security of their systems. So I suppose they are to be congratulated for actually checking to see if they were being idiots. Which, of course, they were.
