Refuse to be vetted!

This email came in from one volunteer, and shows the insidious reality of vetting – and the potential rebellion against it: ‘A couple of years ago I agreed to a CRB check in order to be able to carry on helping out with my childrens (age 10) junior football club in our village (population about 850). More recently, I’ve been asked to submit to another one to be able to help out at their local Cubs. So far, I’ve simply ignored this and will continue to do so as a matter of principle. If I’m asked specifically to go through the check again I’ll refuse and the Cubs will lose another volunteer.’
