"I am not a number"
Those were the words of the notorious "number 6", in the series "The Prisoner". Eurealist comments on the id card scam, whereby all we will be is a number, and without an id card, there will be great difficulty being able to do very much:
The government says it will not be compulsory to carry the card, but in fact it will be essential for everyday living. Card readers will be everywhere. They will help stores check ID fraud when people pay by credit card, and banks when people withdraw cash. Pubs, discos, and traders selling alcohol or cigarettes will want to swipe your card to make sure you are not under age, so they do not get fined.If you haven't done so already, you need to wake up.
