poll shows more opposed to ID cards than support

Posted in ID Cards by ukliberty on December 3, 2007

The Telegraph:

More people now oppose Labour’s proposed ID cards than support them, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found.

Just 43 per cent of those questioned said they favoured the introduction of a national identity scheme compared with 48 per cent who were against.

It is the first time YouGov has found more against than in favour.

The Government has dropped plans, on cost grounds, to build a new database for the scheme. It will instead ”piggy-back” on an existing Whitehall IT system.

Well, there is to be a biometrics database linked to the DWP’s CIS database – which isn’t great at the moment, so god knows what it will be like when the ID scheme is operational.
