MP and ID cards
Posted by John Beacroft-Mitchell
Calder Valley MP, Chris McCafferty, has yet again backed the introduction of compulsory ID Cards.
The Labour General Election Manifesto 2005 clearly states that: “We [the Labour Party] will introduce ID Cards, including biometric data like finger prints, backed up by a national register and rolling out initially on a voluntary basis as people renew their passports.” What part of “voluntary” does the Labour Government not understand?
With more than three quarters of the population holding a valid UK passport, this is ID Card compulsion by the backdoor.
