MPs narrowly back ID cards plan

so we've taken another step towards the big brother society so beloved of New Labour as MPs narrowly back ID cards. As a sop Charles Clarke has said that he will cap the costs, he hasn't said at what level however, and anyway that would just be the up front cost as the scheme will still be paid for with tax payers money, our money, no matter how far the costs spiral.

There where 20 rebels, hopefully this number will grow on the third reading. So now it is back to the House of Lords, increasingly becoming the only balwark between us and this authoriarian government. They will be overruled eventually, using the Parliment Act, despite the House of Lords having been "reformed".
