We can't stop being fascists -- it'll cost too much

On the 'I don't get what all the fuss is about scale' this comment from Jacqui Smith has to be way, way up there...
"As is normal, these contracts have been written to protect the public purse with standard clauses in the event of termination," she said.

"Cancellation of the ID cards contract and partial termination of the application and database contracts would cost in the region of £40 million in the early years.

"Therefore, as I have made clear on many occasions, scrapping ID cards and the identity database will not free up a large fund of money to spend on other priorities."

This issue has precisely nothing to do with cost. The reason we need to get rid of ID cards and the DNA database is because they're fascist. And they'll take us another giant leap closer to 1984.

Either Jacqui Smith is refusing to accept this because she is an evil, fascist maniac. Or she doesn't understand this because she is a moron.

I do hope it's the latter...

I suspect she is both a moron AND an evil, facist maniac.

She knows exactly what they are doing; they all do. And the reason why they want your ID is because they don't trust you. They don't trust anyone. The paranoia of power has induced mass psychosis on all of our leaders.
