The Home Secretary’s speech to Demos on ID Cards and their related databases has been thoroughly taken apart over at UK Liberty, but I couldn’t help noticing this astonishing assertion:

“I should make it clear that none of the databases will be online”

Well of course they will! How else can checks be carried out? The fact that joe public won’t find them via a google search doesn’t mean they’re not online. You know, it would be funny – if only the government’s level of IT literacy weren’t so frighteningly low.
