ID Cards Bill in House of Lords - read and weep
I watched part of the Lords debate on this on Monday and was dismayed by much of what I heard. As with earlier stages of this and other Bills relevant to our freedoms and rights as citizens, a good source of commentary is again the excellent Spy Blog whose article on this week's Lords' proceedings is here - one can only hope that the note of optimism in the first comment to this post is justified at Report Stage for the Bill.
