ID Cards in the UK - More

Despite the Government dropping ID cards for the time being, we're still getting ID cards. The Guardian is reporting that UK passports will have fingerprint information soon. (found via Blogdial)

The requirement to fingerprint you for your passport is a thorny issue, but this looks to me like blatent abuse of power. This smells of Iraq/Belmarsh etc - "we can't do what we want overtly because it's illegal/wrong/unpopular so we'll sneak it in without consultation".
