Letter No 36 by Mike Allott:  email | back to directory


Labour's big brother idea

If the Campaign group's ID card challenge succeeds, it will have declared itself an opposition party to the government.

The manifesto said: "We will introduce ID cards, including biometric data like fingerprints, backed up by a national register."

If the socialist Campaign group can wreck our manifesto so soon into a parliament, it will make a mockery of modern Labour.
