25% against ID cards

52% of people polled were uncomfortable about letting Government departments share information and 25% were completely against identity cards.

Usually you can get some ID card supporter to roll out the lie that honest people have nothing to fear from Governmental daa collection. If anything, honest people have more to fear. The data about them can be poorly defined, badly collected, badly transcribed, corrupted, modified through malice or mistakes, misinterpreted, returned in poorly designed searches, stolen, lost or used for political ends. All the criminal has to fear is that they’ll be caught. Maybe not even that, if they’ve stolen someone else’s identity.
