ID Cards Bill Trounced in the Lords

Once again there is the slightly strange spectacle of democracy and Civil Liberties being protected by the part of the legislature that is logically indefensible in a free and democratic society. The unelected toffs and cronies have once again trounced the ID Cards Bill. This means that they are blocking a manifesto pledge, but apparently they consider this reasonable as they have this strange idea that voluntary does not mean compulsory.

If anything, they are holding the government to its manifesto pledge to keep the ID cards voluntary during the voluntary phase. Their Lordships, like everyone else who understands plain English, realise that ZANU Labour's definition of "voluntary" is not the one found in the OED.
