ID Cards?

Recommended Posts

I know we've hammered this one before; but I'm bemused by the announcement that the Gov is to start a "voluntary" scheme in Manchester. :? 1) who's going to "volunteer" to pay ?30 for a card that does no more than a bus pass or passport? :? 2) Given that NuLab won't be in power in 12 months time, and the other Parties arn't going to waste ?5billion on the scheme - what's the point? :?:roll:

What is the point indeed. But I'll bet there's quite a few of the "if you've nothing to hide you've nothing to fear" brigade who would willingly part with their cash. more fool them I say :wink::wink:

er i thought it was ?60.00.

 

thirty quid for the card and another thirty quid to have all the information scanned in and put on it at your local post office (if it has not been closed by then) or your local chemist. :roll:

As it's voluntary and it's been decided by the government then THEY [the gov] should pay for it... end of story.

 

It doesn't bother me if I have one or not but I'm certainly NOT paying for one.

 

Speaking of ID cards... anyone know if there is currently such a thing for kids under 16 as we can't take a 1/2 hour internal flight down south as my son doesn't have a passport :evil: I don't have one either but I can apparently fly by showing my driving licence and my dad can fly by showing his pension book :?

And you don't get strip searched by the security Gestapo (not yet anyway but give them time........) :wink::wink::wink: Better still go by car. It's cheaper and more convenient, and you can check your identity in the rear view mirror (yes that's me officer) :lol::lol:

Dis,

 

go on the train.... it's far more civilised!

 

Might be more civilised (is it :? ) but at ?134 per head on the train against ?29 per head on a plane I think the plane is the definately the better option. Well would be if it was that simple :evil:

 

Asperity... the car journey will take over 4 hours and involves motorways, traffic congestion, and probably getting completely lost, not to mention the cost of fuel and the valium I'd meed at the end of it all :shock:

 

Easiest option I suppose is to leave my son at home :cry::D I can always take some photos to show him :lol:

You can apply for a student ID card, available for students between the ages 12 - 25. The information should be on line.

Get a passport for the "under 16" .. it's a photo id!

 

Guess we might have to but it would also cost ?81.... nearly 3 times the price of the internal flight :shock:

 

Anyway just found out I can't fly either as I've got an old type driving licence and they only accept the new ones. :oops::lol: Not going well so far :lol:

And if they don't ask them to come up with a reasonable solution.

 

This ID stuff has all got beyond a joke, honest and law abiding citizens are being greatly inconvenienced.

But on the other hand if we both already had ID cards we could fly and wouldn't have the problem we have :wink:

If all they demand is a state-sponsored photo id .. then this should work .. if it isn't a private school!
