Sharing personal information, not joy: Christmas in the UK

They're not relaxed and comfortable in the UK about government handling of personal information - first 25million recipients of child care benefit records (including bank account details) went missing, then 3million records of UK 'learner drivers' disappear in Iowa where they had been sent for processing, and now 6500 pension details (this time not including bank account numbers) have disappeared.

Could happen anywhere I suppose. It's just we don't seem to hear much about it here. Que?
