If it ever happens, the next phase will have to be something transatlantic - not just to complete to circuit, but to negate Russia's stranglehold on the line.
Double Bollocks! (d'you see what I did there?)
ID cards just provide another - or conveniently single - item of identification to be forged.
Anyway, ID cards are just another part of a flawed philosophy that security can be provided by bureaucratic checklist ticking followed by prosecution of the occasional paperwork-shy innocent rather than getting the Plod and Spooks out there catching the real criminals/terrorists.
Rather like all the bloody money laundering regulations we have to waste chargeable time on....
Ten per cent
Pleased to see the term "decimation" used in the correct manner.
Mine's the one with the correct apostrophe.

Bunch of tossers. Time to move.
I suspect the child database is compulsory - by dint of the fact that in the UK you have to register a birth within six weeks. (A criminal offence not to, IIRC)
Of course, as with all licensing/registration requirements, in order to work it does rather rely on the non-law abiding being, errr, law abiding.
What's the problem, Timms? It's only adding a few fields to a database innit?
Ah, I see, no more ICT work experience kids available until next summer
If I can try that one with the Revenue next time. Out of 15 million innumerates, as least some must work in HMRC...
Since no sensible person uses IE isn't this all an irrelevance?
At best it'll turn out like Matrix 2 & 3 - one movie painfully padded out to two in order to fleece us one more time.
So, once the ice has gone in Greenland and North East Canada, then with a few very cool bridges we could drive from the UK to California. Now *that's* a road trip.
Doesn't matter how fast it might be ...
