Who guards the guards?

Another day, another Identity-based embarrassment for the Labour government.

"Staff at the two government departments responsible for prisons and ID cards have lost or had stolen nearly 3,500 security passes in six years, it was revealed. Home Office and Ministry of Justice employees have mislaid 3,492 passes since 2001, official figures revealed. Between 2001 and 2007 passes went missing at a rate of more than one a day, the figures showed." (aol news).

Tomorrow the county council will discuss Labour's compulsory ID card scheme. The Conservative group will oppose the scheme, wanting to concentrate on delivering necessary services for our county, like schools and roads.
