FYI: Yes, the proposed ID card bill does appear to fall foul of a great deal of legislation, both UK legislation and the European Convention on Human Rights. I'd recommend you to read the LSE report - Chapter 12 (The Legal Environment) gives a lot of detail on exactly which of its own laws the Government is proposing to break.
Nobody Important: Your analogy between ID cards against terrorists and beekeeper's clothing against bees is flawed. The Head Beekeeper (the UK Government) has already stated that the protection against terrorists given by ID cards is roughly equivalent to the protection against bees given by a tasteful Burberry-patterned thong.Tony Walton, 15 years ago.
