Big Brother police to get 'war-time' power to demand ID in the street - on pain of sending you to jail

No reasonable cause or suspicion is required, and checks can be carried out 'in country' - not just at borders.

The law would apply to British citizens and foreign nationals, according to Liberty's lawyers. The only people who would be exempt are the tiny minority who have never been abroad on holiday or business.

A second clause says that people who are stopped 'must produce a valid identity document if required to do so by the Secretary of State'. Failure to do so would be a criminal offence with a maximum penalty of 51 weeks in jail or a £5,000 fine.

okay what kind of BS is this. we thought that America was in trouble check out Britain.

fined for no ID. checked with out reasonable cause? who the hell do they think they are?

i understand times are tough but why are they doing this? aren't they afraid to lose the support of the people?

this whole ID thing is alot like Nazi Germany and the "where are your papers thing" in a really not funny way.

o well looks like we are next if Britain is doing it then this might be the last thing bush does in office. Pass a bill making ID card necessary. bam next thing you know RFID chips
