In a blow to the New Labour Scottish Executive the Scottish Parliament has voted against ID card schemes. With every party voting against Labour, with the exception of their coalition partners the Lib-Dems who abstained (!), the Green party succeeded in getting a motion rejecting ID cards through the parly. But don't get too excited, it is of course a reserved matter. That is, Westminster will decide no matter what us dumb Scots think. But that raises an interesting point. Why should we have an ID card scheme foisted upon us when we have clearly rejected it?
