The likely cost of obtaining one of the Government's proposed ID cards has doubled from £30 to £60.
The job of taking fingerprints and other biometric data is being outsourced to private firms, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith confirmed yesterday. She said this would save the Government £1billion.
But there was indignation after it was disclosed that the private firms will send the bill for the work undertaken not to the Government but to individual applicants.
That's right folks YOU are going to have to pay £60 for the honour of letting your government Spy on you!!!
