I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

There are whole classes of people for whom the ID card/NIR will never work, regardless of technical competance or cost. So far there hasn't been a sinlge word (that I know of) from the Govt. about how it intends dealing with these people.

For example:

People with mental illnesses, esp. those with paranoid delusions, who simply will not begin to cope with anything like this.

All the people who are already on the margins of our society whose lives simply won't cope with the demands of such a scheme.

The old saying is that the test of a civilised society is how it looks after its most vulnerable members. It's difficult to see how that test could be passed when implementing the scheme we are opposing.
