Welsh nightclubs to fingerprint customers

I have a feeling that every time Canadians come up with a really, really intrusive idea, there's a bunch of folks in the British Isles who look over their shoulders and think we're amateurs.

While (some) Canadians have been worried about "Barwatch" (see past posts tagged "id swping"), a controversial program that scans the ID cards of bar patrons and puts them in a massive database, bar owners in Wales (with the support of the local police) are looking to fingerprint anyone who fancies a drink and a dance.

This is a phenomenally bad idea.

I think this is very good step towards the security and every night club in canada should follow the same.
