UK.gov's long-awaited, lightweight biometrics strategy fails to impress

Who needs ID cards when you have bio-metrics?

Kids these days have to use fingerprint to access the school canteen and aren't allowed out at lunch anymore. How long before access to government services (NHS/Benefits etc...) requires some form of bio-metric? How long before CCTV in hospitals and elsewhere is hooked up to the cloud and monitored in real time? Enemy of the state was a fictional film but as they say we have the technology.

The thing that concerns me most is the intentional avoidance of regulation by the government as shown in this so called "strategy", clearly there is a plan for all this however nobody is owning up to what it actually is and the general public don't care.
