Cameron promises to kill ID cards

Spy Blog says David Cameron has promised to get rid of ID cards, though doubts his sincerity.

"We hope that this means that the abolition of the entire centralised biometric database National Identity Register scheme, and not just the "ID Cards" aspect of it. is to become a firm Conservative Party election manifesto committment.

We will be seeking clarification to see if that really is what the official Tory party policy is currently.

Given the ineffective Tory Opposition to Labour on many civil liberties issues in the past, we will be more likley to believe David Cameron if he affliates his party to support the cross party NO2ID Campaign, which does have the support of several of the smaller Opposition parties."
