I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Mark...I did not say that ID cards would enable us to quickly and easilly send all illegal immigrants home. I suggested that they could be helpful in stopping things such as benefit fraud, illegal employees and employed and other areas of crime.
As an ex soldier and goverment employee I have had to carry an ID card most of my life so it is not an alien feeling to me.
I realise that a national ID card is a huge step to take and if we go down that road then we have to be sure that it will be worth it in the long term.
I do not see it as a black and white issue so until the shaded areas become clear to me I still have an open mind.
