Tales made of Straw.

Lucrative contracts worth up to £500m each have been put out to tender today for the government's controversial identity card scheme.

Five firms will be chosen to supply computer equipment and manage the application and issuing of ID cards.

So much then for those highly optimistic planted stories about how Brown and Straw were going to at the very least implement a review of the hated scheme.

*Groan* There's no use fighting - Big Brother we love you!

Could they not spend their money on something useful. There must be much more useful things to spend £500 mil on...

an effective recycling scheme?
building some infrastructure in iraq?
ridding the world of pointless celebrities/americans?

Making a gigantic chocolate teapot? They'd have about the same number of uses.
