No2ID Pledge

I'm looking at all the money I'll likely be wasting on festive fripperies over the next month. Rounds of drinks, cabs home, new stockings that I ladder as soon as I put one foot in them. Then looking at this and asking myself if I think think pledging money to the ''No to ID cards'' cause is likely to be a something I'm still happy to have chucked £10, £20 at, six months on?

No contest, I reckon.

Hopefully the ID card scheme is dead in the water after the Revenue and Customs data loss fiasco.

That would be nice, but wouldn't that be the Government admitting its own mistakes.

I suspect that at some point in the next few weeks (or days, depending on how fast the centrifuges in the spin surgery can be got working), we'll start hearing about how this kind of thing is just what the ID card scheme is designed to prevent ever happening again.

Brown already came out with that old chestnut on PMQs today.

P.S. good to have you back Rachel x

Apparently those discs have been lost for 18 months and they're only telling us now.

The government are complete shysters, and the nationalised industries whats left of them are no better.

Come to think of it why hasn't there been a vote of no confidence in the government? Maybe writing to your MP might help if enough of us do it. I certainly have.

I'll leave this as a postscript...

"No man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
