Power to the People Hard-liner, David Blunkett, is expected to criticise the government’s continued obsession with creating a surveillance society intent on infringing the liberty and rights of British citizens in an address at the 21st annual law lecture in Essex University’s Colchester campus.

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.
