What percentage of the UK population currently has a passport?
So 70% of the UK would end up having their IDs up for sale potentially.
Wouldn't it be fairer if all existing passport holders had been asked if they would-in their right minds-mind their IDs being stored for government use and abuse, when they come to renew?
Also, is this where Charles Clarke(?) got his 80% from, rounded up from 70%?
