    Blair & Co defeated again on id cards

    Today's Guardian reports that Blair & Co aren't happy that their sinsiter id card plans have been thwarted again by the Lords:

    Yesterday peers voted by 211 to 175, a majority of 36, to ensure that the scheme remained voluntary until 2011 - after the next general election - rather than rejecting the link to passports outright. But following the vote, the Home Office minister Andy Burnham accused the opposition of "playing politics" and said the new amendment was unworkable.
