No ID card darling?

Mr Darling has been told he must find savings of £36 billion after pledging to increase spending on schools and hospitals in this week’s pre-Budget report.
Simple. Scrap Overseas Aid and stop pissing cash away on crap initiatives. I am now a Financial Consultant and I claim my £200,000 salary... plus bonuses.

He pledged to halve the deficit in four years by raising tax and cutting Whitehall spending. But after pressure from No 10, he did not give details of the cuts.
You can guarantee that the cuts won't come from MP's salaries or expenses.

Sometimes a U Turn can be right; especially if the original idea was flawed. Expect more approaching an election (rats-sinking ship).

I want one of those personally, would save having to worry about leaving my passport at home. And just say - theoretically - a Copper (when he/she wasn't ticking boxes and handing out customer satisfaction surveys) stopped some random scrote in the street and asked him to produce an I.D. card (assuming they were made compulsory - highly unlikely of course) to verify he was not an illegal immigrant, and said scrote was unable to do so. Apart from all the Immigration holding facilities/Police cells being full 1 day after that came into effect, it might actually mean some of these dodgy fcukers were accounted for, rather than roaming the streets unchecked and fancy free. Oh, but then who would be working illegally in 'undesirable' employment (that is beneath the dole scrounging fat biffas and wasters) and paying that desperately needed income tax?

On second thought, its just a law abiding citizen tax, so I'm glad its binnned. Nobody that would actually be identified/targeted through this would ever be brought to book.

Aid to India could be axed.... if they afford two carriers, nuclear power and a space agency, then they can afford to pay for their own poor.

They wanted independance, they got it.

I agree. Besides, who wants the right to walk down the street without 'papers' anyway!

If these feckers get in again, the ID scheme will make a miraculous re-appearance... under a new name... administered by a new Quango... at even more expense than the original. You watch.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.
