I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

It's an editorial (that didn't make it to the printed edition) couselling a calm response to yesterday's events and concluding:

"In the coming days and weeks the public will urged to accept such restrictions on their liberty as ID cards as a price we must all pay for liberty itself. We believe that argument to be absurd and fallacious, and hope that defenders of liberty will recognise that it is exactly this kind of panic-stricken measure that will most gratify the killers".

Amen to that...

In my view, the strongest argument yet is contained within Muriel Gray's eloquent and affecting piece in the Guardian and it is encouraging to see that opposition to ID cards is equally strong on all sides of the political divide.
