Disney systems

Today’s advertisement for a Tender for a new Command and Control system for Lothian and Borders Police reminds me of a visit I made many years ago to a Scottish police force to view one of its brand new computer systems.

In discussion with one of the end users, in a broad Scottish accent, he described the system as a “Disney” system. Confused, we visitors from south of the border had to ask what was a “Disney” system?

Very simple said the officer – this function disney work, and that function disney work......
