Our first candidate for the spare plinth in Trafalgar Square?

Thanks to Edgar for bringing my attention to the loss of six laptops from St George’s Hospital in Tooting. Apparently the machines contained 20,000 patient records, stored there because there were problems with the network. But don’t worry, everything’s OK, because “all the information on the laptops was password protected and personal information, such as postcodes, were hidden – although the patient’s name and hospital number was shown.” What on earth is that pseudo-security doublespeak supposed to mean?

I’ll be applying to the Arts Council for funding to build a pillory on the spare plinth in Trafalgar Square – which should make for a good tourist attraction – and this incident definitely makes it to the candidate list for early occupants.
