I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

The September 11th hijackers all carried valid identification. If the government genuinely wish to combat terrorism rather than generating fear and destroying our civil liberties, they would invest in intelligence and investigation, rather than throwing away public money on this monumentally stupid programme.

A very small number of refusals can effictively cripple this scheme. Mandatory ID cards can only be implemented if we allow it. Please have the courage to stand up for your civil liberties and say "no!"
