ID and unemployment

State Opening of Parliament today – a good day to bury bad news, so keep your eyes peeled.Already, we have: UK unemployment at seven year high – see the Office for National Statistics for the full report.

Oh, there was also a handy “web chat” with the civil servant in charge of ID cards published late last night on the 10 Downing Street site. Lots of quality astroturfing, plus the priceless gem:

“ID Cards will reduce the threat of the Surveillance Society and help safeguard civil liberties”

Keep an eye on The Government Says today, chaps…

Update: Talking of ID Cards – sign this. (via)
