Whittington data farce strengthens case against ID cards, says Bridget

Missing discs, containing personal data on 18,000 Islington health workers, are now reported to have turned up, but not before £25,000 of NHS money was spent looking for them. And Liberal Democrat shadow MP Bridget Fox says this makes the case against ID cards stronger than ever.

Last month Bridget contacted hundreds of constituents seeking their views on the Labour Government’s compulsory ID card scheme; over 90% opposed it.

Bridget says: “The farce over the Whittington Hospital data discs shows how carelessly our personal information can be handled these days.

“More and more people are now sceptical about Labour’s plans for compulsory ID cards. We will all have to pay for ID cards, but there is no evidence they will make us any safer.

“Liberal Democrats reject this ‘plastic poll tax’; we want to see the money spent on more police instead.

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
