Three cheers for the pilots

Airline pilots are refusing to take part in Government trials of ID cards planned for Manchester and London City airports.

The British Association of Airline Pilots (BALPA) has told the Government and the airport managers that pilots will not co-operate with the plans:

“ID cards have absolutely no value as far as security is concerned... It is clear that the Government’s staged introduction of biometric identity cards first to overseas students, then to migrant workers and then for aviation workers represents a way of picking off what is seen as easy or compliant targets.”

I hope we can all get behind the brave people fighting, not just for their liberty, but all of ours!
