Comment is Free - Government Property, your Identity

Over on Comment is Free, Henry Porter writes in a piece entitled 'Government Property: Your Identity'.

People are beginning to see that ID cards are not being introduced so that they can identify themselves but rather so that the government can identify them and keep track of every important transaction in their lives. It is understood that even if you have nothing to hide, you may still have something to fear from a government that lies about its intentions, to say nothing of the governments that may follow in its authoritarian slipstream.

The comments on the comment is free website have broadened to include the legislative and regulatory reform bill.
