There is much on the net about ID cards. I have to admit that I am at present unconvinced of benefits and frankly I distrust this government on matters of civil liberties.
Two questions particularly strike me;
1/. I can't understand why Parliament should vote to introduce a scheme when the home Secretary refuses to say how much it will cost.
2/. If it's necessary as a defence against terrorism, why will it not be compulsory for another eight years?
I can't help feeling that a little frankness by the government would be helpful.
