View Full Version : British ID cards, if allowed, to be sold to private firms?

I don't know the Independent's background, and this seems mostly like a scare story, but I pass it on in the hopes that we can all laugh as this turns out to be just that.

p.s. - not only Americans are crazy :)

Government flatly denied this of course yesterday, although since most major UK outlets ran the story, there must surely have been a pretty reliable source somewhere. The whole ID card business is a disaster on so many levels, frankly I'd believe any story that came out now - the idea couldn't get any worse.
