I wonder if it will make front page news :O)

Do unto us as you would do to others!!.

They claim that there's no problem because the thief will just wipe the drive & sell it on, which is a little different to their attitude regarding government laptops...

Whats the betting that the finders tries to sell the story to an arch rival. And as for wiping the drive-Here's hoping!.

Private Eye are going to love this, I'm really looking forward to what they say :-)

Why are organizations still allowing such data onto portable devices[ Laptops/Media Sticks/Disks]?
The works stays on the office system any any works that need to be done is done there -with if necessary a security person looking on to ensure nothing is taken off.

Perhaps people feel important walking around with all this essential information.

Think that I will go in the security business, and start selling chains and wrist locks!.

Bit like people who walk around with mobiles stuck to their ears. You have to look important to be important, especially when you are annoying everyone around you :O)

That says it spuds.
Another way of describing an inferiority complex I guess- like driving around in a Merc or Beemer 'Look what I've got' [but no money in the bank and in hock beyond the limit]
