Who let Charles Clarke think for a moment that we all want ID cards?
What with the powers they are after to hold a suspect terrorist much longer, I can just imagine what this country is going to be like:
Uncle Fred will pop out for his baccy in the wrong jacket and dissappear for three weeks because he left his ID card indoors. Or are they going to triple the number of policemen, so theres enough to run an old man home (in pairs of course) to produce his card?
The Will of the People, my sad and sorry backside. Article here. Official plans for the cards' use, here.
My advice? Buy shares in Wella and L'Oreal. If this ID card lunacy goes through, theres probably going to be a massive upsurge in the number of bottle blondes on the streets - just to be on the safe side.
