    £100 for an id card

    The Guardian reports that spiralling costs for the planned introduction of id cards in Britain could mean people have to pay £100 for one of these cards. This is an absolute disgrace, why on earth should we have to pay anything for a scheme that is absolutely unnecessary, and which many of us don't want?

    Ministers said the £93 figure was only an estimate of the "unit cost" of the combined passport/ID card to be phased in from 2008. But since it does not include the start-up costs or cross-subsidies of free ID cards for pensioners and the poor, it is likely to top £100 by the time the scheme gets under way. It currently costs £42 to renew a 10-year passport.
    No to id cards. This is a money making scam, and it's a disgrace. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
