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

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.

ID Card in the UK
I don't mind having an ID Card "Personalausweis" is what we call it in Germany. But well, I'm german and used to it, even when I don't understand why I need also a passport, when the ID Card contents more information than any passport, but well. Since I usually don't travel outside Europe, I don't have to own a passport, it's only for traveling out of Europe.
What I still can't see, is, who does want this ID Card in the UK at all? I don't see the government fevering for it, neither the people. And for what should it be? Why not adding more things, like fingerprints and whatever biometric stuff politicians will be able to dream of (but that's another discussion) to the passport?
I'm pretty sure there is something I don't get.
