Perceptive letter in the Scotsman today, from a Mr Eric Begbie:

"In all of the reports and debate about the government's intention to introduce identity cards, one crucial point has been overlooked. None of the alleged benefits could be achieved without the introduction of a new offence of failing to carry the card at all times.

It is time for ministers to come clean and tell us what the penalty will be. I suspect fines for non-compliance will become yet another stealth tax."
Denis Cooper, 15 years ago.
