Michael Howardbacks ID cards

Oh Dear. I started this morning with an uplifting piece, tucked away on page 21 (so really important then) of The Times, that the chairman-elect of the Bar opposes ID cards and trials without jury.

"Government plans for ID cards and trials without jury will play into the hands of extremists, the chairman-elect of the Bar has warned." - The Times

Later on I was brought back down to earth by the news that the Tories now formally support ID cards. Or, to be more presise, Michael Howard supports ID cards and has organised a three-line whip. BBC News
