It is my opinion that the government should scrap their plans to force I.D. cards on to a British public that do not want them.
While watching "question time", every time (which is often) the subject of these cards come up, the majority of the audience (by a large percentage) want nothing to do with them for various reasons and all of them logical. Firstly the lower paid workers and pensioners who find it hard enough to survive at the best of times will be forced into more poverty by the cost of these things, also we all know it will never stop or even reduce terrorism, in fact the only definite thing they will serve is more financial problems for the poorer of this country as I have mentioned.
All to often the government are forcing us to take steps we don't want to, they seem to forget that we voted them in to look after our, interests and not to do whatever suits them. When a government fails to take into consideration the wishes of the public majority, and go ahead with ideas like this, it becomes a DICTATORSHIP not a democracy and this country is fast becoming a dictatorship. Even other political parties are against the idea of these cards and with an election due the government could well do to listen to and, act on public opinion instead of antagonizing them. The vast amount of follies this government has burdened us with combined with the reduction of our incomes by one devious way after another only leads to unrest among the workers which in turn leads to strikes and then with a puzzled look on their faces they wonder why.
