Good news folks. The introduction of ID cards in the UK is being shelved until after the next election. So has NuLabour realized what incredibly dictatorial imbeciles they are? I don’t think so.
Following a spree of data protection problems, mounting estimates of costs and impracticalities, and the simple fact that the population is getting wise to too much tampering in their lives, they’ve decided now might not be the time to push it.
But don’t worry, if this bunch of dictators and their commissars get in next time, they’ll be introduced so fast you’ll hardly have time to pack for the Gulag.
You’ve been warned.
