ID card propaganda

No2ID has posted links to the DVD which the government produced to promote it's ID card scheme, at a cost of 250 quid per copy. The original was on The Register One has to admire the chutzpa of the home office, when they say: The Identity Cards Programme has produced a short video clip which seeks to answer why identity cards are necessary and how the scheme will work (my emphasis)

The video is here, with a redubbed version here. The redubbed version is very well done.

Putting all the usual objections aside: 'Candidates would be asked to provide any existing identity document to help authenticate their personal details' - call me naive, but is this not a weak link?
