Every week there are more cases of the Government losing people's personal data.
Quite aside from the serious ramifications for civil liberties, this shows what a risk ID cards would be. Call me old fashioned but instead of keeping tabs on the innocent, wouldn't it be better to concentrate on catching criminals?
The money for the ID card scheme would be better spent on more police officers. Readers who agree can sign the Liberal Democrats petition against ID cards at www.libdems.org.uk/noidcards
