Scottish Parliament rejects ID cards

22 November, 2008

Power to the People Now, whilst I fully accept that this will not make one jot of difference to the current Labour government it is nonetheless, symbolic given it demonstrates that the government will have an uphill struggle to introduce identity cards. Scottish MSP’s do not believe ID cards will increase security or deter crime […]

Data Communications Bill shelved

21 November, 2008

Power to the People News that the Data Communication Bill has been shelved will be welcomed by all those that have campaigned against it. Needless to say, the government claim that it has nothing to do with those that are against this Big Brother Britain bill and everything to do with the fact that MP’s need to […]

Time to stop Government waste

12 November, 2008

Power to the People At a time when every political party is talking about tax cuts, I think it is a time to consider all government ‘pet’ projects, particularly those that have limited or no value. That is probably most of the IT projects. In particular, I would like to see the government cancel some of […]

National register of voters

The system, to be implemented in […]

I originally set up this blog, because whilst I have my own blog containing my views and opinions of British politics (Power to the People), I felt that […]

How the Conservatives were the first party in modern-times to propose State Identity Cards

8 November, 2008

David Davis (not that one…) Amid the current ID-card-driven masturbatory glee of our “home” “secretary”, “Jacqui” “Smith” over how many people “come up to her and say they want one” (one what?), it’s worth recalling what Michael Howard said in 1994. So, here I reprint a pamphlet by Dr Sean Gabb making the case comprehensively […]

Jacqui Smith, ID cards and Big Brother Britain

7 November, 2008

Stop it Now! Up until a few months ago, the only person I knew that supported the introduction of identity cards, was my wife. After a few heated debates, questions, answers and what-if’s, she eventually conceded that it wasn’t such a great idea. We have a very democratic process in our house, something like the […]
