ID Cards

I am getting a bit more involved in the campaign against National ID Cards in this country. I don’t believe that Nothing to hide, nothing to fear arguements really stand up – No, I don’t have anything to hide, but that doesn’t mean other people have a right to know anything about me. The honus must be on the government to prove a need for these cards. So far they have been unable to explain exactly what the cards are meant to do. Arguements about terrorism, benefit fraud and identity theft come no way near to justifying the huge costs (at least £3bn).

On Wednesday there is a public meeting at LSE. Everyone welcome. If you can make it please do. This is very important – all our lives will be affected by ID cards if they are introduced.

On a different note altogether, on Saturday is a Resonance FM night at Conway Hall, which looks rather excellent.
