    Labour rebels seek block on id card bill

    In this country, we don't need, or want id cards. They are costly, unnecessary, the security is flawed, and we don't want foreign agencies having access to the database containing Britons' details. The FT reports that a group of around 30 Labour MPs are preparing for a rebellion on the bill. In theory, it would only need 34 of Blair's own MPs to vote against the legislation for it to be defeated. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Fight ID cards and declare the UK an ID Card-Free Zone

    Our World Our Say are launching a campaign to have the UK declare itself an ID Card-free zone. The cards, which will cost anywhere upwards of £100 up to £300 each, with penalties of £2,500 for failing to carry one; not having up to date information, or even that the card is not working. Everyone over 16 will be fingerprinted and must provide the government with any information they require on demand. Alarmingly, the US administration has asked the UK to ensure that the national identity database is compatible with US systems so information can be shared.

    Tony Blair's Labour government have shown how little they care for our opinions - or our rights. They have already thrown out the centuries old right to a trial before detention - now we must do everything we can to stop these further breaches of our rights and privacy.

    In the next few weeks we will be contacting you again to let you how to declare your home, your neighbourhood and your country an ID Card-free zone - and increase the pressure on the politicians to vote against ID cards. "
