ID Cards?No Way!

Justice Minister Michael McDowell is reportedly considering introducing a compulsory national identity card scheme in conjunction with similar moves in Britain.
Apparently Mr McDowell is considering the scheme because the introduction of ID cards in Britain would have implications for Ireland due to the border and the fact that a passport is not needed for travelling.
A consultation process is to be established shortly to allow interested groups and individuals to express their views on the matter.

Here's my view on the matter:ID cards are wrong.They are an insult to the freedom of the individual!
Just because the Brits do something doesn't mean we automatically have to follow suit!
Dearthair mor can back off,I say!
