Flaws in passport/ID card biometric security exposed

It seems that the security of the biometric data which the government plans to hold about us on the new 'chipped' passports and ID cards is nowehere near as complete as it would wish us to believe. The integration of large amounts of personal data on individuals within centralised databases and the recording of such information on 'chipped' passports and ID cards is inherently flawed - any security system ever devised is capable of being subverted, as has now been shown, but the potential consequences of lapses in this latest method of tabulating citizens by the state are chilling. Say NO to ID cards and the database state!
