Government army working on ID card scheme

The Daily Telegraph is not impressed that the government already have over 80 people working on the ID card scheme. Neither are the Lib Dems

Mark Oaten, the Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman, said: "The Government should not have a small army of people working on a scheme which has still not been agreed by Parliament. Bringing in the consultants who worked on the disastrous Criminal Records Bureau project is unlikely to improve this deeply flawed proposal."

Over 80 people. That's more than the total number of police officers in all the computer crimes units in the UK. I can't accept that is a sensible use of government resources.
