UK ID card project descends into muddle

Gambling with our Money

An election has to be held within the next six months and the opposition parties have pledged to kill the scheme if elected.

The government must acknowledge - even privately - that there is a better than 50% chance that they will lose the next election. Also, there is just no way that they will get significant take-up of the cards in the remaining time before that election. So by spending money on the scheme at this time, they are just pouring money down the drain.

Isn't there some law against misuse of public funds?

A short-term appointment I assume?
