You can either look at this as a pilot which may completely fail or the first beach-head in the government's attempt to get us to all to adopt ID Cards.

At 11.30 on Thurs, Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, is set to show off the first National ID Card to journalists at an event at the Home Office. The card is only going to be aimed at immigrants initially who will have to carry the card from November.

Expect more on this later when the press has had time to question the Home Secretary.
