CRB Nonsense

The rise of the Criminal Records industry has been phenomenal over recent years, and very many jobs now require your record to be checked. It may do a little good, or a little harm, but no matter, it keeps the Bureau's staff in employment.
I have just posted off a CRB request for myself, enclosing the usual proofs of identity (although I refused to supply my bank details - that's a question too far for me). The charity for which I shall be doing a few voluntary tasks will be charged over £50 to check up on the background of someone who has been a JP for more than 20 years, and whose background is routinely checked by the authorities. A simple letter to my Clerk could prove that I am in good standing.
What a waste of time and money!
