Lord Lucas investigates!

Lord Lucas: What provisions do the Government propose to make for people who choose not to reveal their face in public for religious or other reasons? Are they going to find that their full-face image is none the less flashed up on computer screens at every bank that they visit? Or will specific arrangements be made to exempt them from that requirement? ...

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Perhaps we are struggling to get the point over. Perhaps the noble Lord has not heard or read all the previous debates and questions on this issue. His question is based on an assumption; that is, that banks up and down the country will have access to the ID cards database so that they will be in a position to read that card and then bring up that individual’s picture on their screens. That will not be the case. That is not how the system is intended to operate. It does not work in that way.

I understood that every time you use a cashpoint, your face will flash up on a billboard in Leicester Square.

Sorry about the confusion there; I moved this post to a new time slot where more people would be likely to see it, and it would have been unconscionably rude just to delete your comment without at least an acknowledgement of your efforts.

Is this that new product placement I've been reading about?

That's odd. I have a sudden compulsion to binge drink.

You've knackered the narrative thread.

These adverts are so annoying. And they seem to be louder than other LJ entries.

That's just an illusion. All we've done is compress webofevil LJ entries, so technically we're abiding by the regulations.

I think I love Lord Lucas. Can he make regular appearances please?
