Re: Identity Cards,your feelings/doubts

I had an ID card when I worked for the MoD and don't have a problem with them, and isn't a car photo driving license used as a form of identification these day's.

What freedom Day?. Sitting in King's Cross and it looks exactly like any other day for the past 18 months. Not a lot of people not wearing masks even though they are not required in the station or on the trains.
