Yea, as identity theft isn't a thing, captchas are foolproof, and verification is quick; did this QC just ignore the tech companies replies, or has he "had enough of experts"?

Is there no one in the UK Government who gets technology? Or is willing to acknowledge they don't understand it and need assistance?
