Even I have to admit that ID cards in the UK are finished. I'm sure some of you remember that I was persuaded that the the biometrics and National Identity Register have too many practical flaws.
But now even the Mirror and Bloggers4Labour have given their official blessing to NO2ID. Well done to the opponents, you have won. There is absolutely no way the govt will press ahead with this. Maybe it will be Gordon Brown's privilege to announce the death of ID cards on his ascension to the throne.
