ID card smoke screen

All this time I've been worrying about ID cards and I should have been worrying about the routine tracking of all UK drivers via a vast network of cameras and a big ass database.

What a fucked up nasty Big Brother state we live in. Between this and the retention of mobile phone records, the Government will broadly know where I am at all times now.

I may as well get my ID card and be done with it.

Nice of the Independant to mention civil liberties in one small paragraph in the article. That'll make people sit up and take notice.
