ID Cards to be offered to Y10

The first ID cards will have to be carried by airside airport staff but the first mainstream group to be offered them will be pupils leaving school in 2010 according to the Radio 4 Today program.

Another target group will be people who work with children.

There is no mention (yet) of compulsion although most commentators seem to accept that this will be inevitable.  This introduction is aimed to try to make the cards generally accepted as more and more groups accept them.

Does this fundamentally change the nature of the individual and the state?  The main reason given for the introduction of ID cards is security but there hasn’t been one positive example given.  So do we need them?

Should this be something that children have the chance to discuss in school?
