Postal Voting Fraud

With the recent postal voting debacle (why is this not front and centre as an election issue?) and the judge damning labour activists as falsifying postal votes, David Blunkett is now claiming with great brazenness that ID cards would be a solution to this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the whole point of postal voting that the person is not present?

This is a problem created by reforms this government introduced and a proposed solution which tries to find another reason to introduce ID cards in an attempt to address a problem which won't be solved by them.

There is a place for postal voting, and that place is where people can demonstrate an inability to get to the voting booth.
