If we couldn't laugh: British humour on National ID proposal

if we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane - Jimmy Buffet

Found this on the blog, Just a Bump in the Beltway:

Home Secretary Charles Clarke of Great Britain has pushed for new national ID cards for citizens of the UK for quite a while now. The purpose is to track the citizens and presumably help law enforcement with their jobs. Apparently, these cards are supposed to contain multiple biometric items within them to make them harder to forge and to allow the authorities easy access to the person's identity with a quick scan of the bar code.

As you can imagine, many people have not been very enthusiastic about it and some of them have struck back here . Take a look and have a good laugh but remember that there are plans to change our policies and add biometrics to them in the US.
