    Biometric scans to begin in April

    Today's Guardian informs us that the "big brother" style biometric scans will begin this April for some people renewing their passports:

    Within two years - that is from 2008-09 - the 7 million people who renew or apply for a passport will be given a full biometric passport, possibly containing electronic scans of all their fingers, thumbs, face and eyes, and have their details entered automatically onto the national identity database. In effect, they will get an ID card by what critics call "creeping compulsion".
