So the other shoe drops, this is what the absconding control order subjects newsfelch was to help usher in, we already have a returned sus law now Reid is basically taking us to- Show me your papers-
The government is considering giving police officers across the UK “stop and question” powers under new anti-terror laws, says the Home Office. The proposal, allowing police to ask people about their identity and movement, is among measures being considered by Home Secretary John Reid.
The measure is so far used only in Northern Ireland. Police elsewhere have to have “reasonable suspicion” a crime has been committed before they can stop people.
Anyone who refuses to co-operate could be charged with obstructing the police and fined up to £5,000, according to the Sunday Times. A Home Office spokeswoman said: “We are considering a range of measures for the Bill and ‘stop and question’ is one of them.”
You see this is what was always the actual implication of ID cards, once we have them then- Hey why not be asked to show them, and if you don’t, well what have you got to hide? And of course the law to back that power up (otherwise having the cards would be pointless, the circular logic feedbacks the reasoning thus the law is required), police allowed to ask anyone at anytime to produce papers of identification and if you do not? Bang! You’ve got a record, your DNA will be recorded and you get to pay the state a lovely big wodge of cash. The clocks are striking 13.
