I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

We carry credit cards, shop cards, NHS cards, debit cards, driving licences, why not another one? Whilst much more information is held about us than we already think, the idea of a database holding everything about me available to anyone with access to such a database, and possibly for a fee as has been suggested, is not on. ID cards did not stop the Madrid bombing, they have them in Spain. With currently held data - why do we need more - and at what cost? There are darker sides to this scheme as yet not revealed. No, I do not want my already invaded privacy further breached at any cost. Do I have anything to hide? No, nothing - and I do not need to prove it to anyone. Orwell's 1984 is kindergarten compared to 2005.
