The link is click here and there is a huge amount of utter paranoia and comedy golds.....'let those who want to be included on the DNA database be recorded. Let those who don't want to be recorded remain off it'...hey no kid Sherlock, so that'll be the criminals that stay off it. Pure Comedy Gold
'Gandalf your point is??'...I thought it was obvious but for you and the No2ID loons...it means 57,988,000 don't give a pigs' burp and therefore the 'roll on ID cards' brigade have had a stunning victory.
'Maybe you might be bothered when it hits your pocket.'...nope, security and getting tough on DSS scammers are worth the price.
I'm glad that the government is keeping a 'huge database' all about me, it'll help me remember my details when I have a memory lapse...
As GANDALF <|:-)> says, the people that the ID card system is supposed to keep track of will go along their merry way, ignoring it, just as they do car insurance, car road tax, passports and all the other irksome necessities of life.
Gandalf it isn't that people don't care about the ID Card, it's that they don't understand the implications of it, only having only one point of view put across... all you have to do is go the the Parliment site and look at the ID Card bill,, if you read it properly that will just give a slight idea about what it entails..
"fifty different sorts of information to be held on each individual"
Go to your local health centre or your local council offices or the local tax office, see how much information they hold about you. Government agencies can already access all this and more, so can organised criminals.
Paranoid and a loon..emmm it's just info whats your problem... forum = discussion,, I understand that some people on here don't belive in Freedom of Speech, but surley they can't disagree with a discussion?
