Why is there such debate over the proposed ID card scheme?
Why would you not want one? What cons does it have?
Don’t want people to know your name or address?
Get real, hundreds of companies already have it. So does the government, so why can you not let them have it held on one more database?
Don’t want your medical records put onto a database?
It’s already on one at your doctors surgery.
Would it not be of benefit to have it on a card too? If you get taken unconcious or something into hospital, and you have an allergy, or something, it would be there for them to know, instead of either waiting until a family member arrives to tell them the details of it.
In summary, if you have nothing to hide, then what’s the problem?
If you don’t think it’s right, then there is definately something fishy about you that should be investigated.
The only part that I don’t agree with, is the speculation (notice that word) that it will cost Â£30 to have it. We already pay Â£30-odd pounds for a passport every 10 years, don’t make us pay for this as well.
