I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

I suppose this is where the stupid ID card system fails. I wonder how many homelss people there are in this country? How is the Government going to bag an tag them all?

Surely a responsible Government should ensure it has no homeless people before it decides to go and waste vast sums of money on some crazy id scheme.

Perhaps the Government has already had a discussion on how to deal with the homeless and the solution will be one as used in some tin pot banana republic. They just disappear!

I suppose the other alternative is that anyone who has no card is a non-person so wont be able to survive, especially if in the not too distant future and with a bit of mission creep we end up with a cashless society.
