ID Cards and Michael Howard

Apparently big news! Michael Howard looks set to be backing down in his support for ID cards! However, it seems that he will only be abstaining as it has not been given enough time in parliament for his concerns to be discussed. In related news, 100 MPs have been urged to vote according to their conscience as they've previously came out against ID cards. MPs voting against their consciences? Unthinkable, they always act according to their convictions!
