Indentity Cards in Britain

From my point of view the problem is not the idea of an ID card per se, but the intrusive aspects of the government’s proposed scheme.

If ID cards were voluntary and just consisted of your name, date and place of birth, and photo, and were usable for European travel and self-chosen identification; e.g. in banks, then who would oppose them? They could be issued with the passports, if requested.
