For the first time next year, electors will have to prove their right to vote when they are asked. Is this not also a chance to consider whether Identity Cards should be introduced in Britain?
In 2010 the former Prime Minister David Cameron rebuffed the idea of the introduction of Identity Cards !
Not everyone has a passport or other official documents, so fraud is always a possibility. Since 2010 the Middle East war has created huge tides of Refugees, including some Terrorists, who want to settle in Europe.
Can Britain really still justify not having Identity Cards ? The Identity Card System requires the creation of a Data Bank, which could then be linked to other such Banks in other countries. Could this not become a key weapon in the fight against Terrorism ?
Britain may want to leave the EU but geographically it is a part of Europe forever ! To be able to decide with assurance whether a visitor is a Briton or an acceptable Tourist, or perhaps a known Terrorist, a Data Bank linked to others would be a great help !
Brexit or not, Theresa May the new Prime Minister, should consider the rapid introduction of Identity Cards !
