Default Brit National ID cards

I don't think I've seen anyone commenting on it yet.

What say you expats? For? Against?

If your not doing anything wrong, what's the problem with it? It would be interesting to see what kind of information they want to hold on it though.

And another one from Swansea about the size of a credit card. Should be good until your 70th birthday unless you are naughty.

Thats true. Something to do with getting older and more wrinklier and needing a new photo every 10 years. Funny that my American one is only good for seven years though. Maybe I'll age quicker here?

I think it's just one more nail in the coffin of democracy, they (politicians of all major parties) are trying to push this through on the media hype that is "terrorism" when all they are really trying to do is control the population - covert surveillance, chips in cars that show where you are and what speed you do, CCTV everywhere. It's totally wrong and George Orwell must be smiling in his grave!

Why should some nameless civil servant (servant to who precisely) be able to know what I, and innocent and law abiding citizen am doing 24/7.

GCHQ already listen to EVERY mobile phone call and read every text message. They know where all the mobiles are at any given time - I helped design the Cisco network for this project a few years ago so I know that this is true - What more can be done by them to prevent our civil liberties?

I'm sure there'll be more, and bet your bottom dollar (or pound) it'll go worldwide and probably administered by the US Government. That way there can be total and complete control, until the public has enough and creates WW3 - against the governments of the day.

Will Anarchy prevail?

They tried to bring in ID Cards after the end of WW2.......

I mean if the blitz, bombings and D-Day doesn't call for ID cards, I doubt a few nutters blowing the odd train up is.

What good is an ID card to Blunkett anyway? I mean he cant say "Oh yeah that looked like the buggar...swarthy and tall he was...saw him with my own two eyes guvnor".

Politician? Logic? No matter how I try they dont just quite stay together.
