After top-secret documents were left on a train by a Cabinet Office official last week, we now have another unforgivable security breach — this time in the form of a stolen computer from the constituency office of Hazel Blears.
Naturally, thefts happen. Ms Blears cannot necessarily be held responsible for that. What she is accountable for, however, is the fact that the machine…
“… contained a combination of constituency and government information which should not have been held on it.”
And they expect us to believe that we will be safe and protected when they institute their SuperDatabase!
I today received a message regarding my last post (on the story of Kafka and the doll) from William Diamant — father of Kathi Diamant, author, actress and Kafka researcher.
William kindly wrote to inform me that the story of Kafka and the doll was originally told by Anthony Rudolf who, unfortunately, I know nothing about. He went on to add, however, that Kathi tells the story in her book Kafka’s Last Love and that Kathi is currently in Prague on a mission to find lost Kafka letters which were confiscated from Dora Diamant (Kafka’s last mistress — and, I believe, not related to William and Kathi) by the Nazis.
If you’re interested at all in Kafka, you may want to take a look at the Kafka Project. Additional information can also be found at Kathi’s website.
