It’s curious the London bombings came at a time when support for compulsory
identity cards is on the wane in Britain. In December 2004, according to the
UK Polling Report,
“68% of people thought ID cards were a good or very good idea, 31% thought
they were a bad or very bad idea. This month [ICM Research] found that only
55% thought it a good/very good idea, while 44% thought it a bad or very bad
idea.” Brits aren’t stupid, or at least some of them aren’t.
They realize compulsory ID cards and the sprawling database behind them are
bad for civil liberties. Charles
Clarke, the Home Secretary, told the UK Telegraph last week he doubted ID
cards “would have made a difference” in preventing the bombings
(that is if we buy into the official story that crazed Muslim fanatics pulled
off the attacks). Not that it makes a difference. In the days after the attacks,
France announced plans to introduce passport checks (your papers, please), Italy
pushed for expanded police powers, including the right to question terrorism
suspects without a lawyer (guilty until proven innocent or simply guilty), and
Germany drew up plans for a national “antiterror” database (snooping
on everybody, especially political opponents). (See How
far will Europe go to stop terror? Christian Science Monitor.) Consent for
all of this is sorely lacking, even with “terrorist” attacks, so
the globalists will need go back to the drawing table and come up with another
attack, maybe with a dreaded biological or even nuclear angle.
