The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

£300 per person ID card cost

Yet another rise in the cost of ID cards for us poor citizens if the LSE report is anything to go by. According to the report the cost of ID cards could possibly rise to £18 billion - with an individual having to pay up to £300 for their little bit of plastic.

And what response has the Home Office given? According to BBC News Online they have refused to put a figure on the cost of setting up the cards system, saying it is commercially sensitive.

How terribly convenient!
