UK ID card

[This is primarily for UK readers, but others may find it fascinating to read one article about the "benefits" of our proposed ID cards.]

Know anything about the UK ID cards? Personally I don't, and I work in the IT industry with government departments as some of our clients.

If you want to get your head around it a bit then I suggest you go to The Register and look at Everything you never wanted to know about the UK ID card. It is a several page article and quite haevy going (at least I found it so) but on the last page there are links for making your opinion known to the government through the consultation process.

So what do you think: Are the cards a good idea? Will they work? Will Britain turn into a Russian style police state? Discuss.
