More than 1,000 messages asking for ID cards have flooded into the Home Office.
Over the last two years, 1,142 out of 3,073 pieces of correspondence to government on the biometric cards have been classified as "wants an ID card", according to Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
Smith revealed the figures in a recent parliamentary written answer where she added that the cards appear to be growing in popularity.
"From October 2007 to September 2008, the number one theme every month, accounting for by far the most common subject matter, has been 'wants an ID card'," she said.
Notice the use of the term "flooded". She also failed to mention that 1,141 of the 1,142 desperate pleas for an ID card came from her serial letter writing husband and the other one from her dog!!
