The madness that is the UK Home Secretary.
Now I don’t like Jacqui Smith, I have never liked her – she is one of those politicians that should be behind the banner of Tory Blue, because that is what she is.
I call it the madness because, even though the people do not want and ID system, she and the people around her push forward with that idea.
Even worse, is that people will have to pay for their own cards – and to the tune of 90 quid ($US180).
But add that to what is happening in airports. Now me, and I do think I have a bit of common-sense, ID cards are going to be introduced. Like – I ask you, why weren’t they issued with ID cards a long, long time ago?
But what am I bitching about?
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is set to unveil an 18-month pilot at just London City and Manchester airports.
Airport unions have been resisting the scheme, saying workers would have to pay £30 for a card to do their jobs.
However, it is understood that the cards would be issued free during the evaluation period.
What!? Workers have to get ID’s for working where they should have been issued by their employer – and they have to pay for them?
The woman is nuts!
These ID should be provided – but by those who vet the workers and that means the Airport companies. Not the bloody workers.
Call an election Mr Brown – let me get into blogging why you, a Labour Government (I laughed at that), should be voted out of office!
I am a Labour man – a life long Labour supporter and an ex-member of the party – because of people like Smith and you.
I will be voting LibDem when the election comes around – and I will try to get my message out as much as possible.
