UK ID Cards Bill This Autumn

Despite recent cabinet setbacks, Big Blunkett is determined to introduce compulsory National Identity Cards for innocent British citizens.

The BBC Reports that he intends the legislation to be announced in the next Queen’s speech.

When pressed about whether they would be compulsory he said: “my own view is that the minimum is you can’t actually work, or draw on services unless you have the card”

That sounds compulsory to me.
