Wow, these huge decision changes are coming thick and fast now. FormerHome Secretary David Blunkett, after years of pushing the “We must have ID cards to prevent terrorism” button has suddenly decided that since everybody should have a passport anyway, and the law requires these to be biometric digital things these days maybe an additional card system as well is just an enormous waste of time and tax payers money.
Well done David, you only started wasting cash on this idiotic scheme in 2001. So today’s question is:
How much did it cost the British Taxpayer for Labour to decide that ID Cards are not a good idea?
- BBC News – Blunkett seeks ‘end to ID Cards’
- The Telegraph – Senior cabinet ministers ‘discussing dropping ID Card scheme’
- The Telegraph – Scrapping ID Cards should be just the start
