And they're off

The election has finally been called (despite all the campaigning that has gone on in recent weeks), and the legislation still to go through parliament may have to be scrapped.

BBC News has an article on the subject including the following paragraph:

"Home Secretary Charles Clarke has admitted his controversial plans for identity cards and a new offence of incitement to religious hatred may be shelved."

Of course, this is not time to get complacent just because the threat has retreated slightly - I will be keeping an eye on the campaign trail to see what Gov't and opposition (both of them) MPs are saying on Home Office Affairs.
