take this title and shove it.
Good on them, hopefully more councils will follow suite.
Liverpool City Council passed a motion last night vowing not to co-operate with Home Office plans to extend its ID card trial to the city early next year. Liverpool and Blackburn have been apparently been chosen for the next stage of the trial - the cards are currently being piloted in Manchester. The Lib Dem council said it …
Islington's declaration as a nuclear free zone was pointless because no-one was planning to base IRBMs outside the Upper Street Fish Bar. The only things that might happen --- the roads carrying a convoy (unlikely) or the white train going through the local railway lines (possible) --- were outside the local council's ambit. Liverpool and ID cards is different, as refusing use of council channels of advertising and, say, declining to accept an ID card as a substitute for other ID when doing business with the council, will actually materially affect the programme.
So I guess Liverpool decide not to waste the money.
Lets see, Wilmslow, Wigan, Stockport, Burnley, Bolton, Preston, Manchester are all thereabouts.
I wonder if they can be encouraged to not take this up as well.
Perhaps we can make it grim up North for ID cards?
