The coalition agreement promises, among other things, to:
- Scrap the ID card scheme, the National Identity register, the next generation of biometric passports and the ContactPoint Database.
- End the detention of children for immigration purposes.
- End the retention of innocent people’s DNA on the DNA database.
- Defend trial by jury.
Maybe we won't turn into a Police State after all, which we surely would have done had New Labour won a majority.
