Unintended consequences?

Scout jamborees could be under threat because checking the backgrounds of thousands of foreign Scout leaders for criminal and other charges would be impossible.

The Conservatives say they would cancel the Vetting and Barring register if they got into power and a recent poll by NO2ID finds that public support for ID cards and the NIR has collapsed, see here.

Political pressure must be maintained; next Saturday, 17th October is another day of action in Manchester where you can help burn a giant ID card. I'm sure Sir Baden-Powell would approve.
