Kudos to the government on ID cards

People who opt out of having an identity card when they renew their passport will still have to pay the full £93 combined cost of both cards, the Home Office disclosed yesterday.

The decision is a setback to anti-ID card campaigners hoping to develop a boycott on the back of the last minute opt-out compromise which defused parliamentary opposition.

Even though I don’t want an ID card you have to admire the strategy of the government at getting it passed the lords. The government has made all compromises that the lords succeeded in getting completely useless.

Someone should kick the big eared fascist where it hurts.
