BB is Selling You

The Independent on Sunday: Ministers plan to sell your ID card details to raise cash
Personal details of all 44 million adults living in Britain could be sold to private companies as part of government attempts to arrest spiralling costs for the new national identity card scheme, set to get the go-ahead this week.
The Independent on Sunday can today reveal that ministers have opened talks with private firms to pass on personal details of UK citizens for an initial cost of £750 each.
Blair's not selling my details for £750, they can F.R.O. I'm sure I'm not the only one expecting a serious outbreak of civil disobediance if the government forces this bill through. Anyone not signed the pledge yet?
