Your criminal record, educational attainment and health data could be used to decide when the state should intervene in your life, and equally, when to withdraw benefits from people who are deemed less needy.
I want the government to focus on all young people and nurture the talent we have in order to help our country keep up with global competitors. We are repeatedly told that we are the future of the nation. If indeed we are the future of Britain, why are our leaders not taking us seriously and investing in us?
If there's any one unifying message springing from Change:HOW? so far - from the Labour politicians, to the Greens and SNP, from Syriza to the Pirate Party, from the direct action activists occupying power stations to the man who organised pillow fights in Trafalgar Square, it's exercise your democratic right to have an opinion, to voice it, act on it and fight for it.
On 18 September, the people of Scotland voted against independence. The Scottish National Party (SNP), created in 1934 with independence as its central goal, had lost. Yet just five months later, they are now positioned as one of the big potential winners in May's UK General Election.
It's time for us to be as bold on tackling the staggering income inequality that exists in the UK, by introducing a maximum wage to end the disparity between the top and the bottom. The facts and figures tell it all. In 2013 the average FTSE 100 CEO received total remuneration worth 143 times that of the average employee in their firms.
While this Labour policy may seem progressive, reflecting the reality that many fathers want to be at home with their newborn too, I feel what it's really reinforcing is that after four weeks a man's place is still at work while a woman's is at home with the baby.
Increasing paid paternity leave from two weeks to four weeks might sound like a small step, but it's an essential one. It goes someway to creating an equitable system that sees mums and dads as equal and able... What's not to like?
Is Ed Miliband committing political hari-kiri? The polls show that Miliband is coming out of the "anti-business" row stronger, not weaker, in news that could shake up the political received wisdom for good.
One of the biggest scandals of the last five years has been the way that Sure Start children's centres have been allowed to wither and die... Now the Labour Party says that these ghost ships could be revitalised by offering 50,000 childcare places.
The Labour leader's statement over the weekend on the record of Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories on tax transparency sadly seems to bear all the hallmarks of electioneering, and is designed to put pressure on the Cameron administration. This is a shame as it is an important subject.
Last week, Ed Balls came under fire for forgetting the name of Bill Thomas, a leading businessman and author of a small business report for Labour, while being interviewed on Newsnight. Embarrassing. But not as embarrassing as forgetting someone's face, something I do on a daily basis.
It is clear that the Conservative Party's longer-term economic plan is working. They are cutting income tax for over 25 million people, saving the typical tax payer £705 a year. They are cutting the jobs tax saving businesses up to £2,000 enabling businesses to hire more people...
Value-for-money has been the deafening cry of free market ideologues and politicians on the right. Keep governments out, privatize, and let the market work its magic to produce the most efficient solution, they say...
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. So goes the latest motto of the 'New' Labour party, where Ed Miliband continues to dig his political grave deeper, deeper, and deeper still. All in time for the election. One would think his past indiscretions would have sent him packing long ago..
Today is a vital date for London not least because in the UK an estimated 103,000 women have undergone FGM and 20,000 girls are at risk... We must seize the opportunity to empower millions of women and girls around the world. For a long time international development has been seen as something 'we' do to the rest of the world. That is an outdated worldview which must be broken down.
Do I vote again for a party whose values do not correspond with my own, and remain hopeful that Labour will shift back to the left? Or do I move on, vote for a party whose policies I more closely believe in, and hope for a radical shift in the national allocation of seats?
