identity cards - a couple of quick questions

hey all, I'm doing a presentation on ID cards in a couple of weeks as part of my law degree, and was wondering if anyone has a minute or two to spare to answer a Q or 10.
Short answers would be fine though if anyone has any strong views feel free to post (/link to a page you already posted them on lol)
Thanks in advance.

1. Are you;
A : Strongly in favor of ID cards being compulsory
B in favor of
C Neutral
D against
E strongly against.

2. How do you feel about the use of biometrics? (as above A-E)

3. How do you feel about the storage of this information in a supposedly secure database (to which 400,000 workers in the public sector could have access)
(again A-E)

4 Do you think they will prevent terror?
Yes/No

5. It will prevent people going about their daily business without hindrance (A-E)

6. It will prevent benefit fraud (A-E)

7. Which statement is more true
A: law abiding citizens have nothing to fear from ID cards.
or
B: the government cannot be trusted with this information.

8. Do you believe it will combat illegal immigration?
Yes/No.

9. £20 billion is:
A justified due to benefits
or
B better spent elsewhere

10.
How much would you be willing to pay?



For anyone that takes the time to respond many thanks! I would leave rep for you all but A I can't make much difference to most of you right now, and B I've left too much today lol.
Thanks!



EDIT: typos.

5. not sure what a-e means here but whichever means it will be more of a hinderance. e.g. Rushed toA&E after an accident. No id? sorry no treatment. If you think well they will just treat you anyway, then what use will the card be? either it is necessary to receive a service or not.

6. Wont solve the problem as benefit frauds will still find a way round the system. The people who pay them don't care about id, they just want cheap labour.

Strange how the government would have us believe that a large percentage of the public are in favour..

"Strange how the government would have us believe that a large percentage of the public are in favour.." Heh so true.

Thankyou all for your responses so far! Has been a great help.
#14
1. strongly against

2. strongly against, there is no need for this kind of data to be held. i have seen examples where people have been wrongly accused because of the "proof" this evidence provides

3. there is no such thing as secure, especially when the government runs it

4 No

5. Kind of

6. POssibly

7. the government cannot be trusted with this information.

8. No

9. better spent elsewhere. also it will end up being two times or more expensive than initially predicted.

10. Nothing. I would rather be blown up by a bomb than loose my freedom

Wouldn't you be better trying to sort out the Dixons TV Fiasco for your Law Degree. Am sure you would get at least 50 responses here !! :)

Heh if it was that simple sure but as I can't represent you without advocacy rights...
Worth complaining but the best you'll get them for is breach of contract (which is pretty clear by their T's and C's!). Might get a voucher or two if enough people push them.... or use HMCS to issue online... just remember that if it isn't dealt with in the small claims (and lets face it, they'll push for an allocation according to complexity rather than value) you could end up with their legal costs.

Still a class action with everyone putting in a tenner might be worth doing. (pledge a tenner anyone?)
