UK.gov to roll out voter ID trials in 2019 local elections

You don't have to show ID to buy alcohol, knives or solvents unless you look underage. Also, I've never been asked to show any sort of id to book into a hotel in the UK.

Last time I claimed JSA (a few years ago now), I don' recall having to produce id either (but I could be misrembering this).

Also, there's big difference I'd suggest in having to own a passport or driving licence (i.e. photo id) and just having proof of residence (e.g. utility bills.)
