The last time we tried ID cards

Spot-on opener for the new series of Jonathan Freedland’s The Long View on Radio 4. The programme’s about the last time we tried ID cards in the UK and the court case that brought it all to an end in 1950. I could say something glib: ‘important lesson’, ‘timely reminder’, ‘tinker with an Englishman’s rights at your peril…’ something like that… but you should probably just listen to it (I’ve got an MP3 if you find the programme’s been overwritten by next week’s).


  1. Thanks for the heads up, as an aside – Did you covert from .ram to .mp3, and if so what did you use?

    In know in our time has an mp3 link, but as of this morning it is broken.
