Ben Chu: Where are the Labour complaints about the end of ID cards?

The Queen's Speech contained a bill to scrap ID cards. So where were all those former Labour Home Secretaries to condemn this folly? David Blunkett? Charles Clarke? John Reid? Jacqui Smith? Alan Johnson? The silence has been deafening.

Perhaps they will raise their voices in protest when the bill is published. Let's hope so. Because if they don't I'm afraid a lot of people are going to be left wondering whether these former ministers ever really believed in the merits of ID cards in the first place.

The Fat Owl knew ID cards were wrong - but he was so petrified of admitting they were a mistake that he preferred to *continue* with the mistake.

In exactly the same way that when he discovered he'd been releasing convicted rapists into the community untraced, to rape again... he carried on doing it, in case putting a stop to it would draw attention to himself and his mistake!

They don't make Home Suckretaries like Bunter any more. Thank Christ.

I suppose this obese turd will be expecting a Peerage for his marvellous work next?
