    Do you agree with everyone have ID cards to prove their identity? Should people have to carry them as the US do? Or are they a breach of your civil liberties?

    100% yes

    but make them too hard to forge, it would take "stop and search" to a whole new level

    No problem with it... I know people who havent a passport (cant afford it) and dont drive, so have no photo ID. Plus, nothing to hide so what is the issue....If i have an accident going to work for example then they will at least know who I am.

    i wouldn't mind. I think i might prefer it, I only have my passport for ID so only take it when buying ciggies or booze really dislike taking it on a night out but suppose it's not bad i still get asked for it :eek:

    I wouldn't object if it was the same kind of thing as a bus pass, with the addition of address and maybe date of birth. But I would most definately object to ones that store my fingerprints, retina scan, medical and financial details and other information.
    Identity theft is already a big problem, just think how worse the problem could get if everything was all in one place and in a form that could easily be lost or stolen.

    Its the law here ..I have a credit card type passport..
    No problems as such but transferring it from handbag to dog coat to work coat ect gets on my nerves and I quite often forget...

    oh right but having name address and date of birth on would discourage identity theft lol

    i would not want to carry something with my address on around with me, good advertising to show i wasnt at home at the time :rolleyes:

    Depends on just how much info they would put on it and would there be a charge,would it be another money making scheme for the government to make our purses lighter than they already are?

    I have a bus pass, it has my photo on it, but not much else. This sort of card is fine by me.
