We're OK though?

This would never happen here though, would it?

So, any plans for a digital ID in the UK should be entirely trusted because our government would only every use it for the original stated purpose. For example, they would never use it to dig up dirt on their political enemies.

Therefore we should all welcome such ideas, unless you are doing something wrong of course. Otherwise you've got nothing to fear.

That way, if someone from the local council decides they need to fine someone for littering, you can be safe in the knowledge that those criminals can't go around anonymously.

I can't see any downsides.
