Here Comes the Australia Card Again By James Reed
mThe political class have really wanted a national ID card, as it is just the thing which any fashionable authoritarian anti-freedom government has. This card was defeated in the past, but now it is coming back, like a zombie, to eat the flesh of our freedom:
This time round terrorism is being used to scare us into adopting this most un-Australian of documents, and Pauline Hanson has fallen for the need for it, because of her knee-jerk fear of terrorism and welfare fraud:
It will do nothing of the sort, and is useless against home-grown terrorism. They will just commit terrorism, with their ID card in their back pocket.
Contact Pauline and tell her to wake up to the loss of freedom which this ID card is going to bring. We will join the family of Islamic and Middle Eastern countries in having this, and where it does nothing to stop terrorism.
