Michael Howard forced to back down over support for ID Cards. What exactly would be conservative about supporting something that would massively increase red tape and the power and cost of Government for something that would deliver no benefits against crime or terrorism? If he wasn't so obsessed with fighting the Government over who appears harder on criminals he may have stopped to see that ID Cards were a way to show they were different and more sensible than the Government.

However, the news that ID Cards could fall foul of human rights laws is unlikely to interest either side as both are willing to ignore such piddling concerns when it suits them.
