Do you carry ID?


Well STOP IT NOW. You are about to be harvested at will, like it or not. No ID on you means no fingerprints or iris scans. You NEVER have to give your name and address to the Police if you are not being arrested or charged. Not even if you are section 44 searched.

Read this from Computing

The Metropolitan Police wants to buy £3m of handheld units for law enforcement agencies that would be capable of capturing facial, iris and fingerprint biometrics as well as reading chips held on credit cards and passports.

The Met is tendering for a framework agreement with selected suppliers that would set out terms and conditions under which purchases can be made by different agencies for the length of the contract.

Such agencies would include HM Revenue & Customs, the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, the UK Border Agency, the Home Office, the Ministry of Defence, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and all UK police forces.

The agreement will be for three years with the option to extend for another two. The devices will be separate from the mobile computers currently being rolled out to UK forces to assist with day-to-day policing.

The Metropolitan Police had not provided a comment at the time of writing.

Stan - last year when we got stopped on Old Holborns little stroll none of us gave any details at all, and it caused no hassle. well no more hassle at any rate.

so I guess it all depends on circumstances.

I've been carrying ID since I first began working, and probably before. It's called a National Insurance Number but I didn't think that was good enough so I also carry a driving licence, go on the voters roll and many other things besides. What the fuck else should they know about me...oh yes, that criminal record that I thought had been expelled in 1993, you know, the one I thought that had been expelled after three years??? I can't even go to Argos and order something without them saying "what's your postcode," before i've given them the address to send the goods, then they TELL ME WHERE I LIVE!!! No matter I've never transgressed since, never said boo to a fucking goosestepping 'hofficer of the fucking law', what a joke.

Fuck em, fuck em all.

Time for the revolution...all can attend but for those with criminal records pre 1997 (retrospectivly to 1907!)
