ID Cards for Britons Advance

NYT reported The government of Prime Minister Tony Blair faced down its opposition on Monday in a politically charged vote in the House of Commons on a plan to introduce mandatory national identification cards...
Good for them. We need ID cards with biometric data that are impossible to forge, and people from other countries entering legally need similar, with biometric data but different colored, id cards.
