Oh come on!
The ID Cards scheme continues to get sillier. A few weeks back it was announced that they wouldn't be making a big new database for the cards, probably something to do with the NHS one going so spectacularly badly even by Government IT project standards. Now reality is forcing them to slowly drop the biometric elements as well. At this rate, when the ID Cards are finally reached, they won't have any information about you at all and will not allow you to do anything. Everyone will wander around with t small white piece of plastic, looking confused.
