LSE vs ID

There are those who maintain that Home Secretary Charles Clarke is a thuggish, meritless c— [1]. His critics, on the other hand, are less complimentary.

Laughing Boy brands critical ID cards study “mad” without seeing it

Didn't Tessa “Let them eat casinos” Jowell get a kicking for criticising the Brass Eye Special without watching it? Yup—but even she didn’t actually comment on it in Parliament; she merely confined herself to sounding like an oaf on the radio. Clarke’s always happy to go one better, though. He’d be a dream heading up the MoD—he’d personally ensure that everyone’s weapons misfired, JUST BECAUSE.

Let’s see just how mad these LSE bewilderniks are:
The technology envisioned for this scheme is, to a large extent, untested and unreliable. No scheme on this scale has been undertaken anywhere in the world. Smaller and less ambitious systems have encountered substantial technological and operational problemsthat are likely to be amplified in a large-scale, national system. The use of biometrics gives rise to particular concern because this technology has never been used at such a scale.
Barking! They’re quite literally insane! Everyone knows that UK Govt + computers = UNIMAGINABLE SUCCESS!

Did you see the story about the leaked minutes of a meeting where Blairs accuses Clarke of not being authoritarian enough?

Isn't *c*nt, given you earlier use of *, *c*c*ntnt etc, with c*nt be inserted to infinity, like a tv showing a live picture of its own screen? Ooh, spooky. And a lot of *c*nt.

For the record, for all that I still think he's a *u**, it's true that he hasn't tried to use the recent London bombings as political capital by citing them as a reason for ID cards; indeed, within 24 hours he had said they wouldn't have made any difference in this case. Not that that will stop him and Blair beavering away in the future, trying to make it illegal to move house without informing the authorities. **nts.
