ID Cards "A Farce"

A stand-alone ID card will cost £30, ministers sayPlans for a national ID card scheme have been branded "farcical" after suggestions it might misidentify people with brown eyes or men who go bald.

Home Office minister Tony McNulty said were some technological "difficulties" with some of the biometric checks.
That was why the cards would employ 13 such features in all, he said.

Tory spokesman Edward Garnier called the scheme an "expensive waste of time". Lib Dem Mark Oaten said ID card plans were "descending into farce".

Can this highly expensive loss of Liberty and Freedom really go unchecked, let us hope that David Davis (next Tory Leader hopefully), puts aside leadership ambition and rallies the MPs to send this into oblivion, to abstain from voting is not an option.

I have pledged NOT to register for an I.D Card, they are an expensive folly and the price keeps rising, lets be honest, after the foul ups of other IT projects made by this Government do you really want to trust them with this.

Remember, you and your family will be, finger printed and eye scanned, tagged like a criminal, you WILL be responsible for any incorrect data entries (not those inputting), so what happens to your life, if your eyes are brown or you are bald and not recognized ???????.

A Sad Loss

Another needless death an overbearing, control freak nannying Government has caused.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Panadol to a student; but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I'm A Whinger and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.

If you still remember him pass this on, if not join the majority and do nothing.

My Apologies

Well, I have finally made it back, I have had allsorts of technical problems, hopefully now sorted.

David Davis, poor speech or not, in my view not, it was the only speech with real substance, I can make jokes about Tiny Blur and his sycophants, i want to hear what our next leader is going to do to get us winning elections once again.

What else have I been not able to comment on due to my enforced absense, Turkey - keep them out of the EU, if they come in, we want to be walking out, Straw and his pathetic, crass rhetoric about bridge building of Christian and Muslim faiths does not wash.

We can no longer decide on our immigration policy, thanks to a high court ruling, what now will this weak, lying, dispicable Government do I wonder, it has rather opened the floodgates.

Maggie, happy 80th, love her or hate her, when this nation needed a radical change, only she had the balls to do it, Tiny Blur on the other hand will be remembered for what?, taking us into a war on lies, jumping on every bandwagon which came his way, let us not forget greed of his wife, using his position to better hers, a set of politicians out only for themselves (Alan Milburn, Keith Vaz, Mandelson etc.), control freakery.

Indeed what a wonderful legacy Blair will leave behind. WORST PRIME MINISTER EVER...

More soon.
