"What is the purpose of our so called parliamentary democracy?" (Peter Stearn at 19:37, Wednesday)
To service the needs of corporate power. You should read 'Captive State' (George Monbiot) to see how little politicians value public opinion, expert opinion, better alternative plans, and taxpayers' value-for-money. This ID card scheme is just more of the same, with the added bonus of removing the last vestiges of your privacy. Calling what we have a democracy is a sick joke.Alan Chambers, 12 years ago.
