Don't like ID cards? Hand over your passport
Anybody who objects to their personal details going on the new "Big Brother" ID cards database will be banned from having a passport.
James Hall, the official in charge of the supposedly-voluntary scheme, said the Government would allow people to opt out - but in return they must "forgo the ability" to have a travel document.
Campaigners reacted to Mr Hall's remarks with fury, saying they were
yet more evidence of the lurch towards "Big Brother" Britain.
