£100 to prove I am who I say I am?
What's so wrong with my current driver's licence and passport? Why do I need another card? My driver's licence already has my photo, address, DOB, signature etc. Why do I need to pay £100 for something I already have? Oh, I forgot:
a) Government ignorance, incompetence and greed.
b) My driver's licence doesn't hold the stuff they need to know to combat terrorism, benefit fraud etc.: sexuality, race, religious beliefs or lack thereof, shoe size, todger length, time it takes you to orgasm, what your favourite pizza topping is, how many fingers you're holding up (2) etc.
It must be noted that I am neither a terrorist, nor am I a benefit fraudster. There, I don't need a card.
"You have nothing to hide, so why not?" That's the kind of thinking that'll get you killed for thinking.
