I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Well said, "Me", especially where you say "However much you may believe it, and you are fully entitled to, you must realise that it's not the way to forge the arguement to try and gain wider understanding and agreement." Politicians are people too; they are often aware of intelligence and security information that can't be spread about the public domain; it is their responsibility to try to protect us, and they are not about to dismiss terrorist threats as "inside jobs" or fabrications. If we're to succeed in countering the dogma that ID cards will make us safer, we need to use the real practical arguments that exist, not start demonising and antagonising the very people we need to convince.
