Under the compromise, anyone who renews a passport will have their details put on a national ID database - but will not have to get a card until 2010.So I've thought these were a bad idea for a long time, longer than I've had this LJ, and for me the big scary bit was the Database behind the card not the the card itself, so this is not good news.

"I take the view that it is part of being a good citizen, proving who you are, day in day out,"?Not a quote to fill you with confidence?
As a bonus here the scary fact of the day:
The UK has 20% of the world's CCTV and one camera for every 14 people.
Why do people not see how bad an idea all this is?
