Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

UK goes ID Card
From Lionel I learned that the idea of an ID card can become a trauma for a Brit. I have grown up with http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3658489.stm Cards, so I don't mind to have them. We use it in day to day transfers and just need a passport for traveling outside of the EU and nothing more.
So I see there is a thing that might make sense.
On the other hand, I have no idea, why we don't have just one document instead of the two.

Biometric stuff is coming here right now, fingerprints is the first thing and I guess the Iris-check will come soon after.

Our securities use the same reasons, people in the UK use for ID cards; they say it helps against Terror what a silly idea! Many of the 9/11 attackers have been living in Germany before, and here we have an ID card.
But just for Germans and the terrorists have not been germans as far as I know. So how should ID cards help against terrorism? Without any other help, I'd say: Nothing. Not a single thing.

But well, we'll see.
