BBC: Plans for paedophile lie tests
Convicted paedophiles could be forced to take lie detector tests to ensure they stay away from children, under plans by Home Secretary David Blunkett.
Jen came up with a great suggestion this morning: if lie-detectors are accurate [which they're not, by the way], then presumably Mr Blunkett would have no objection to their being used on politicians. It seems to me that, if nothing else, we could save an awful lot of money on public enquiries:
"Tell me, was that dossier sexed-up, Mr Blair?"
