Remember back in January when there was a flurry of people writing to their MPs about the National Identity Card? Well, obviously enough has happened that we're all meant to have forgotten about it, 'cos Blunkett's dragged the idea out again. And of course, it's still being spun as a way of saving us all from drowning in the floods of asylum seekers - that'd be the ones who are significantly less keen on coming to the UK than they were last year, no doubt?
The only good thing in the whole mess is that the plan is to introduce the card "soon after the next election". But does anyone realistically see anyone else getting in?
In all seriousness, I'm beginning to think it may be time to get the hell out of Britain.
