Look...I have a driving licence, I have a passport (actually its expired but I can renew it) I have bank cards and statements. I’m on the electoral register. I can prove who I am. Why do I need another id card? If its forgeable (and anything that man can make man can duplicate) what possible benefit does it have for counter-terrorist operations?
Its a total and complete boondoggle of no value and massive expense.
I am agreeing with you, but that’s not really the point. All I was saying is that its yet another way for the gov’t to exert control over our lives (in their mind, our puny lives). I don’t really think that the majority of who’s in control now cares one whit about terrorism, they want something else entirely.
