ID Cards cost rises above GBP 5 billion!

Even on the day Tony Blair announced when he would resign, the Labour spin-masters couldn't resist trying to release bad news, no doubt hoping it wouldn't get much coverage. Estimated costs over ten years of the ID Card scheme have risen by GBP 400 million to a new total of GBP 5.1 billion!

I think that the ID Card scheme will be the 'Poll Charge' of the Labour Party; a fatal error in policy which will, along with the unpopularity of the Iraq adventure amongst many, eventually lead to the well-deserved kicking that Labour deserves - and I hope will get at the next General Election.
