In other news, I have been hot under the collar about ID cards, and more specifically the latest story about proposals for their mechanism for introduction. Interesting arguments on the site (which I joined in on!)

A leaked government memo describes possible invidious approaches to soften up the country for ID cards. They appear to consider targeting the young to be a good option. These guys ought to run tobacco companies...

Seriously, I really dislike the idea of coercion by stealth. As a liberal, I take the view that you should let people be free to be honest, and deal with it effectively when they're not.

Here's hoping that I don't get a 5am wake-up from the rozzers for expressing that particular viewpoint...
