Blog the Bill, mail the H.O.

Re-posted from archive of infinite ideas machine 2004: [LINKS UNCHECKED]

A belated reference to Mark Simpkins’ excellent consultationprocess blog, which has taken the Home Office’s consultation document [553 KB PDF file] on the proposed ID Card (and National Identity Register) legislation and MoveableTyped it.

Being able to comment on, link directly to paragraphs and use trackback introduces a whole new dimension to the document – and begs the question why the Government, if it is so interested in ‘consultation’ and enamoured of e-Everything, has not adopted this approach. It certainly can’t be the cost, if a private individual (with some help from a few friends) has been able to do it!

The deadline for responses is 20th July, so check it out online then send your feedback and comments to, including the words ‘consultation response’ in the subject title. Or write to:
