No comment – yet

You may recall about a month ago on a post about the huge threat to civil liberties posed by the Blair government’s ill-advised push on biometric ID cards which they wish to impose on British citizens (how such a scheme is going to work across many government minsitries and departments as well as police and local government when the folk most repsonsible for it at the Home Office have clearly shown they can’t even talk to their own departments is beyond me). As part of the blog I posted a copy of the letter I emailed to my MP, Alistair Darling, who is a government minister who strongly supports the scheme. A couple of days later I received an acknowledgment from one of his assistants and an assurance of a response shortly. Several weeks later and still no reply. Perhaps he is busy helping is cabinet colleagues with damage control.
