Very well said Andy. It's really weird to read these commenters who seem to believe that an ID database will somehow "do something about" immigrants, numbers of people claiming welfare, people smoking on street corners (?!), etc. This is the constituency the government is appealing to -- the ones who seem to want to live in a world where "not being the sort of person I like" is a criminal offence, and who think ID cards will magically make that happen.Eleanor, 12 years ago.
