Agreed 100% with your points of principle, Anthony, but the cost overruns shouldn't be ignored either. There are just *so many* reasons why this is a seriously bad idea.
I don't want, and will not have, an ID card. Period. If cost overruns are what kill the project, so be it. I don't care whether the reasons that kill it are "pure" and principled or not, just as long as it dies. And if drawing attention to the potential national cost of the scheme is what it takes to motivate large numbers of the public against the scheme then that attention should be drawn.Tony Walton, 15 years ago.
