Cambridgeshire, ID Cards and Chocolate Teapots…

October 28, 2008

Plans to introduce ID cards have been attacked by Cambridgeshire County Council.

Councillors said the scheme – which the Government claims will boost national security – would be as much use for protecting Cambridgeshire residents from terrorism as “chocolate teapots”.

The council resolved to make representations “at every possible stage” reiterating its opposition and will not require ID cards to be produced when residents access services.

Cambridgeshire County Conuncil in the latest in a long list of councils to pass such a motion; a partial list is available here.
