ID Cards and ePassports will help terrorists

In the future,
extremists could construct bombs which would only be detonated when a certain
passport or ID Card was nearby. It could even go so far as to pick out a
particular nationality. 

A bomb which
incorporated an RFID reader device could sit and wait to be activated by
information stored on the passport or ID Card’s electronic RFID chip, which
gives out a radio signal.  

We
have always said that ID Cards would not protect us against terrorists,
fraudsters and criminals, and now it seems that the technology chosen by the
government could prove to be the terrorists best friend.

In a
report by
The Royal Academy
of Engineering it warned of the lurch towards a 'big brother' society, in which
the Government and even supermarkets hold huge amounts of our personal
information, and could put lives at risk.  

In the deeply
worrying report, the academy said our identities, eating habits, health and
vulnerability could all be compromised and abused.

Britain’s government now relies on technology far
more than other countries, accounting for 20 per cent of all technology used
across the world, despite having just one per cent of the globe's population. 

You can read the
full report here.

 

Whatever they
tell you today, you can be sure it will be used for something different
tomorrow. 

Say
NO to ID cards, Say NO to the
Database State
