New CRB checks "draconian and dangerous" say UKIP

News that parents who regularly drive children for sports or social clubs will have to be vetted or face fines of up to £5,000 were desribed as "draconian and dangerous" by UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom.

Mr Bloom spoke out against the proposals saying it was "unacceptable that the state can and want to control people to this extent."

"What this legislation is essentially doing is allowing the state to decide who is and who isn't a paedophile." he said.

"For years I've been involved with cricket and sports teams in Yorkshire and around the country without the people involved feeling the need for the police to check me out.

'If this government really do wish to 'safeguard children' they'd be better off looking up the word 'liberty' in the dictionary.
