What’s the problem?
Sorry for the life of me I can’t see what the problem is in carrying a national identity card. Do I have one of these?
Yes I do… and I suspect many of you do too… the vast majority of us carry a driving licence whether it be a full licence or a provisional.
Do I have one of these?
You bet I do… and I know I need it should I wish to go on holiday abroad. If I don’t want to give my information to the Passport Office then I don’t travel.. simples.
Do I have one of these?
Yes I do and I bet you do too… simply put if we didn’t have one of these with our National Insurance Number on it.. we wouldn’t be able to work.. would we?
Would I object to one of these?
Most certainly not.. And for the life of me I can’t see why any person would be too upset.. that is unless they have something to hide.
In fact I will go as far as saying if I could carry one card, with my driver’s licence details, passport details, national insurance number, and my ID details on it.. the better and easier it is for me. Than having to carry passports, driver’s licence.
Whatever you do now there is a likelihood it is being recorded on CCTV… once you switch on your phone authorities can triangulate where that phone was used. And in order to get a monthly contract phone they need to see your driver’s licence or passport. The only way to get around not having any of these cards except the National Insurance Card – which is automatically issued to you if you are a British Citizen – is to not drive, use a pay-as-you-go phone.. and never holiday abroad. Oh and not forgetting don’t go out side of your house.. because CCTV is likely to catch you. And if you do all of that you are still identifiable by your NHS number which is given to you at birth. There is a record of you somewhere along the line.. from the moment you are born. Whether it be for your parents to claim Child Allowance or for you to have your immunisations as a baby. Somewhere on some system is a detailed report of you.
Oh sorry about that change house for tent in woods, because I have just remembered you can’t buy a house or rent a house without showing some form of ID.
People scream and shout it is an invasion of privacy… and not right to be forced to carry identity cards.. but our identity in some form or another is on one or more computer systems. You can’t open a bank account without having ID.. you can’t even work on a building site as a self-employed person, without having a CIS card.
Everywhere you go and whatever you do… somewhere someone will want to see your ID.. so please tell me what is the problem with having one form of ID that covers everything and carrying it with you at all times?
And having ID cards, would help with immigration.. and the illegal immigrants that are here in this country .. because if you don’t have a card.. then you should be deported.
I really would like to know the big objection? Because the only reason I can think as to why people don’t want to have a national identity card is because they have something to hide or they are resident here illegally.
