As for ID cards, I predict a riot

Close to where I live in London, a NO2ID group has sprung up to persuade Conservative, Lib Dem and Green councillors to order the local authority to refuse to co-operate with ID cards.

Similar campaigns are getting going in all kinds of towns - Glossop, Rhyl, Leek, Chippenham - places you don't normally associate with militant civil disobedience. It is a small thing, which may not be worth mentioning, but there is a chance the pattern of the poll tax protests is being repeated. When the poll tax came to parliament, there was a noisy debate. Then it disappeared beneath the media's radar. It seemed as if the issue was dead, but at the grassroots, thousands of people were preparing for an explosion of protest.

If ID cards are as expensive, intrusive and useless as I believe they will be, we may see the same again.



And on we go... on and on and on and on....
