Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity

German ID

In Actual Fact on the practical side of ID cards:

“What was surprising yesterday was that four people, in Bundesgrenzschutz uniform got on the train at Colmar in France and during the 10km journey to Saarbr�cken in Germany, went through the entire train demanding to see the ID/Passports of everyone on board. After showing one of them my passport, I asked the man (who was, I should add, friendly, courteous and polite) why border passport controls were still taking place 15 years after Schengen. ‘Oh, it�s not a border control,’ he said, ‘just a random, spot check'”
