Orwell (can hopefully now) RIP

I've spoken about ID cards before.

There were various news articles yesterday (here and here).

The Register's John Lettice reports further today: John Reid, who I have always considered to be a ignorant prat of the highest order (and you know what they say: "Jack of all trades, master of none"), may actually be doing something sensible and kicking this riduclous Big Brother idea into touch (in effect if not officially).

This is most out of character for him. I can only assume he is trying to keep damage to a minimum...

Anyway, labour goons notwithstanding, thank goodness this form of identity management seems to be going away...
