If the campaign against ID cards is to succeed, then pointing out the financial burden it will create, both to us as individuals and to our economy, might be the best way get the message across. We all know people who cannot get the health care they need, who are on waiting lists, have a long term health problem which is given the minimum treatment available, dangerous potholes in the roads which are simply left unrepaired, underfunded libraries, schools without adequate numbers of teachers or books and a laughable public transport system. So why is the government prepared to spend so much (of our money) on the completely unnecessary introduction of ID cards? They say that it will make our lives safer but most people would agree that attention to the problems I have already listed would go a long way to doing just that.julie, 15 years ago.
