IPS hands out £650m contracts for ID cards database

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Identity and Passport Service (IPS) has awarded £650m of contracts to CSC and IBM to build its national identity register even though the Tories said they will repeal ID card and national identity register legislation when they win the next election.

Orwell ID CardThe IPS have justified pissing £650m up the wall because they need to record biometric data for the new biometric passports the European Empire has told them they have to issue so they may as well make it ready for ID cards as well.

The ID database is going to be linked to the DWP’s Customer Information System (CIS) which contains cradle to grave information about every citizen and is used and abused by other British government departments, such as the Ministry of Justice, HM Court Service, HM Revenue & Customs, the NHS and local authorities (link 1, link 2, link 3).

    …I would worry just as much about losing my id card as i worry about losing my passport, birth certificate and bank statements when i carry them about.

    Although i do think they are a good idea, i think they are a waste of money
