Re. "Todays interesting article" above:

'The Home Office claims in its own benefits overview report that many of the strategic benefits of the ID card scheme will derive from the use of a unique Identity Registration Number (IRN) "unequivocally linked to an individual"'

Phew - thank goodness for that! As long as I SAY that I'm THX17463M, I must BE THX17463M mustn't I?

Seriously, many of these problems with a system such as this might be overcome by simply tattooing the number on an individuals forearm... although I'm SURE I've heard of something like that before....
