One thing (out of many) that is particularly unnerving about the whole Orwellian nightmare that is the National ID Card/Population Register is the fact that one of the companies in the running for the contract, Atos Origin, are the same company that administer disability benefits in this country. Previously this particular division of Atos Origin was known as Schlumberger-Sema, a firm with a history of building population databases; it was they who operated a Hollerith punch-card system for the German government between 1933 and 1945.
