Marina, Whilst I don't disagree with your "guilty until proven innocent", interpretation of ID cards (a trend started in the 80's when they took away the right to remain silent), I have to question your assumption that it's Eu driven. As I understand it the USA has set a deadline, after which it wants no foriegners on its shores not properly tagged and Big Brother-ed. I'm sure I heard on Newsnight that it was our Amerikan (sic) cousins who were setting the agenda and timetable for the European police state.
