There is a very important point that everyone needs to remember:
The government is there to REPRESENT us - not to DICTATE to us.
When they start to dictate to us - they no longer represent us.
When this occurs, you must know that you now live in a Police State where democracy, human rights and civil liberties are discared in favour of the diktats of the ruling (wealthy) 'elite.'
Ask the Jews about civil liberties being eroded in the Nazi era - you might then manage to realise what's going on in time to stop something similar happening here.
They seem to be setting up a totalitarian future for you and your children where potentially, you HAVE no rights except those granted to you.
Anyone who thinks that ID cards are not going to be compusory IN EFFECT - are daydreaming. They might not be made compulsory to carry but the system will be redesigned so that you can't get anything done unless you VOLUNTARILY carry it - get the idea?
It doesn't matter whether you have 'anything to hide or not' - it's rather more a case of, 'why should I have to prove that I don't?'
Section 25 of PACE 1984 already allows the Police to detain someone until their identity is satisfactorily obtained. The 'war on terror' excuse is merely a false ruse to encourage you to accept the otherwise unacceptable.
If you don't think an entire society can be manipulated post WW2, refer to the Apartheid era in South Africa to see how white's were conditioned to accept the otherwise unacceptable.
It seems people think this sort of thing can never happen - when actually, it's happening right now in front of their eyes.
And don't think for one minute that the Police are to be trusted with your rights - they are unable to think outside of the authoritarian box - it's how they operate on a daily basis and know of nothing else.Nick Brook, 14 years ago.
