ID Cards in 2013

Well despite a split cabinet, David Blunkett has published his plans for ID cards, which will carry all sorts of biometric data, and will be in place by 2013.
It’s interesting to note that the Cabinet still has to agree to cards becoming compulsory as well as Parliament.
It seems that they would stop terrorism, illegal immigrants, “health tourism” and rabies. Well maybe not rabies. Let’s face it, none of the other things are likely to be stopped either. Don’t I need a National Insurance Number to get a job.
Just as well there’s no-one who’d be prepared to illegally employ someone paying them cash. That sort of thing doesn’t go on does it.
