Hillier, Minister at the Department for Work and Pension’s, said that the controversial ID scheme has ‘Jerry built’ three databases. “There is the one that holds the fingerprints and facial image, the biometric data, and then the other information which is broadly what is on your passport already and the third bit is the one that links the two,” she said.
In most system this would be separate tables in one database; not three separate databases. Is it any wonder that Governement employees are busily dumping data from database onto data sticks, which they then lose?
She also said that what was important about the identity card was the chip and suggested that in the future it may be possible to install the chip in another device. I suggest that we chip all MPs and RFID tag them too. If after 50 years we can see a decrease in MP criminality we can consider rolling it out to the larger population.
