Labour Launch Campaign - more laws for the law abiding
Labour launched their campaign in Yardley today. They attacked me. I have said that we need to act to deal with criminals. Labour intend to introduce more laws for the law-abiding.
Their plan with the ID Database involves keeping detailed records of honest law-abiding people and fining them if they don't tell the government if
a) They move
b) Their ID card is stolen
c) Their ID card is damaged
In the mean time, however, the ID card will not apply to Asylum Seekers or illegal migrants, but it also cannot be used to distinguish between illegal migrants and legal migrants or indeed holidaymakers.
It is a waste of time for dealing with terrorism and will not be able to deal with the vast majority of benefit fraud.
It is another example of Labour's more laws for the law abiding.
In the mean time Labour have the record number of drug using school children.
