The ID Card bill received its third reading this evening in the House of Commons and now passes to the House of Lords. Votes were 224 for, 60 against - a majority of 160. 19 Labour and 11 Conservative MPs rebelled against their respective party whips. The bulk of Conservatives seem to have abstained.
Let's hope the House of Lords shows a little more backbone and throws this anti-democratic measure into touch.
