Good day for NO2ID campaigners

It was a good day yesterday for those campaigning against ID cards as the scheme suffered in the House of Lords. The Upper House has attached an amendment demanding detailed government costings before it will be allowed to go forward. The Home Office has been adamant that they will not release detailed costings because it will interfere with their ability to get a good deal for taxpayers when putting the scheme out to tender.

Andrew Phillips of the Liberal democrats has a nice article in the Guardian and there are various other reports in the usual places.
