ID cards by the backdoor

I'm not surprised, are you?

Having been brought up in a very over-the-top religious household, I'm now bracing myself for the discovery that it will consist of somekind of bar code with 6 sets of 6 numbers and then we'll find out that John Prescott is the AntiChrist (did we ever doubt it?) and it's the beginning of the end, folks.

And breathe.

Oh well.

...by the backdoor, in the fridge and under the sink. Do you own a nectar card ? Truth is even if they don't issue us with id cards, the government will soon be able to just buy your profile from Tesco.
Presumably they'll wait until the end of a Sunday afternoon when they can get all the slightly wilted ids at a discount.

...sorry - not sure if I've got the hang of this html doohickey in the comments boxes - here's that "Tesco" link in full:

Bloody hell thats a badly written article you've linked to - like ploughing through porridge in wellies.

I don't give a hoot if passports prove more about the holder than they do now - provided the information is only accessed as part of a query thrown up by a person's travel between countries.

Maybe I'm being a little bit "I'm alright Jack", however, because I have never applied for a passport anyway. (Nor a Tesco card)
