Cameron To Cut ID Cards And Identity Register?

Cameron has just said on BBC that things like the ID card system AND the Identity Register need to be cut.

Then he was asked about Tory plans to let private private companies have access to our medical records. Cameron sidestepped by saying this was part of a review that they were still to look at. No doubt they will actually carry on with that, but the BBC presenter failed to mention that this is already happening under New Labour anyway.

It would be ironic if the overwhelming need to cut public spending caused the demise of New Labour's police state plans.
