Boris' Article on ID cards

Boris' Article is available online.

It's called 'Ask to see my ID card and I'll eat it'. (although this opens him up the next time he sits next to Paul Merton!)

But I tell you this. If I am ever asked, on the streets of London, or in any other venue, public or private, to produce my ID card as evidence that I am who I say I am, when I have done nothing wrong and when I am simply ambling along and breathing God's fresh air like any other freeborn Englishman, then I will take that card out of my wallet and physically eat it in the presence of whatever emanation of the state has demanded that I produce it.

Boris' article is mentioned on bienvenue chez dafyd and Leigh's Persistant Thoughts (this chose, by chance, the same quote as me).

There is a nice piece of writing on the BBC site about ID cards, especially if they have RFID fitted.
