We don't need no stinking ID cards
Privacy International FAQ
On July 3, the Home Office began a six-month consultation (PDF) on whether or not ID cards should return to the UK.
So, come December, we can expect the consultees to conclude that there is overwhelming support in the country for the introduction of ID cards, or entitlement cards, in govspeak.
The Register is agin it, four man and square. But then we have lots to hide.
A rather more reputable bunch is Privacy International which has compiled a useful FAQ on the ID card. There are links to activist organisations, Home Office press releases, and advice on how to get make representations to the Home Office.
If you are against the introduction of ID cards, now is the time to start joining. ®
