Tuesday 18th will see the Report and Third Reading stages of in the House of Commons of the highly controversial and deeply flawed Identity Cards Bill 2005.
We urge everyone who has not yet done so to contact their Member of Parliament and beg them to vote against this awful Bill.
There is growing cross party opposition to this Bill, as demonstrated by the increasingly effective NO2ID Campaign, and the NuLabour majority is not what it was the previous time this wretched legislation was rushed through without proper informed debate before the General Election.
There are many possible ID Card schemes, some of which might be relatively cheap, reliable, useful, secure and benign towards individual privacy and civil liberties.
The sneaky and untrustworthy NuLabour Home Office's proposed scheme is none of these and will make things worse not better, at vast expense, and at great risk to many innocent people.
The Liberal Democrats and the Scottish and Welsh Nationalists appear to be solidly against the scheme. It is unclear how the Northern Irish parties will vote.
With the Tories still flip flopping about with their leadership selection process, it is impossible to predict how many of them will abstain.
If there are insufficient Labour MPs who rebel against the NuLabour commissars, it will be sad day for civil liberties.
We promise to try our utmost to ensure that any MPs who do vote for this evil Bill are punished politically at the next election.
