ID Cards: Gateway reviews.

Well who would have guessed that this worthless shower of shit that make up HM Govt have been lying to us over ID cards.
Phillip Johnson mocks this shower without mercy.

After fighting tooth and nail to block their publication, the Government has finally been forced to cough up the so-called Gateway reviews of its decision to proceed with ID cards.

Who would ever have thought Labour would be hoisted by their own FOI requests?
Ministers fought to the bitter end against the request under the Freedom of Information Act.

The reviews show that all the big arguments deployed for ID cards - they will stop terrorists, curb crime, limit immigration etc - were just so much eyewash...

The review also identified a string of "important risks" of launching the scheme, including its sheer scale, the problems of collating the data and the unreliability of biometric data. We don't often hear ministers emphasise these points, do we?...

The funny thing is that if the Government had not made such a song and dance about keeping them secret, these reviews would probably have passed largely unnoticed. Now, however, they expose the hypocrisy of ministers who talked up the efficacy of ID cards while knowing that their own review talked it down...

The fact is the state has long wanted a population database and it is using the threat of terrorism and other security considerations as a justification for establishing one.

The Tories say they will scrap the plan if they get into office. They must be held to that promise.

The Labour Government lying? Never! No, can't believe it. The most honest, decent, noble, caring, unselfish Prime Minister you could ever wish for.

Yep, cares about people wasting food as well, just look at that clip of him eating his snot.

If that is not the act of a selfless man saving food money then I don't know what is?!

"held to that promise"? Are you kidding?
Would that be like the politicians who were held to their promise to hold a referendum on the EU treaty?

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Evil Prime-Minister-In-Reality 'Lord' Mandelson is behind all this bollox, including the outrageous Exit Permit, ready for the day when he proclaims himself Lord Protector.
