Government advice on ID Fraud
by Martin Belam, 15 July 2004
"Never carry documents or plastic cards unnecessarily."
However, on its What Is Being Done page it reassures us that:
"In November 2003, the Home Secretary announced the Government's decision to begin the process of introducing a national identity cards scheme, which will enable people to prove their identity more easily and protect their identity against theft and fraud."
Erm, I thought you just told us not to carry our ID documents around with us...
