More information on the rise of ID cards in the UK. Mr. Blunkett seems set on biometrics, and seems to be tackling the idea from a more thought-out, slightly more long-term direction ("we're talking a three year set-up before we can bring in the biometrics.").

I'd like to look into his thoughts in more detail, from a better source than a news story, but it still appears that there is a rush to introduce the technology, like some kind of magic solve-all elixir, without any real focus on why and how such a system should run. I'm going to think about this in more depth...
