I had linked to this at an earlier article, but the link expired. I have now dug out the new link and updated the earlier article so that it works again.

I have added two new sections to the identity cards briefing document I produced earlier. These sections cover how one gets an ID card and when you will have your identity checked under the scheme.

Magna Carta Plus has a series of briefing documents that cover specific topics in more detail than is usually the case with news/blog articles, and which may be updated periodically. They can be found here, or via the lower button to the left of the main title bar above.

A new briefing document on the British government’s identity card scheme has just been added. Comments are welcome on both this and the other briefing documents.

Is the Magna Carta British or English?

We have received the following comment from one of our readers. There is some disagreement amongst the MCP contributors as to whether the commenter has a point. Thus, with some amusement, we place the on-going discussion here.

The responses from our contributors continue in the comments - you can of course add your own 5s18d.

“Sir,

“I object to the national origin with which you have attributed the Magna Carta (1215) and the Bill of Rights (1689). You have branded them as being of a Great British origin.

“This is inaccurate rubbish, Great Britain didn’t even exist when these 2 great documents were drafted and signed.

“They are both English in origin. Drafted for the benefit of the people of England, living in the country of England. The Magna Carta is an English document, the Bill of Rights is an English document.

“There, that wasn’t too hard was it?

“It is VERY IMPORTANT that people should NEVER try to rewrite history. You should correct these two glaring inaccuracies on your web site sources without delay….”

Happy New Year
