Amazing. Not that politicians would rape your rights for the sake of a buck -- if the cash goes into their pockets -- but that they would be so open about it. The Independent reports the latest on Britain's plan to impose a national ID. "Personal details of all 44 million adults living in Britain could be sold to private companies as part of government attempts to arrest spiralling costs for the new national identity card scheme, set to get the go-ahead this week. The Independent on Sunday can today reveal that ministers have opened talks with private firms to pass on personal details of UK citizens for an initial cost of £750 each."
