22-02-2005 19:39The government has recently tabled two amendments to the Serious Organised Crime Bill currently going through Parliament and due to become law by May 2005.

The above article was the first time I've seen anything at all on this issue, there are many people here in Liverpool and elsewhere on social security benefits both in work and out of work, disabled, sick or retired. Many claimants have had the pressures put upon them, I for one have been getting letters pressuring me for months and months into accepting payment firstly into a Post Office (P.O.) card account.

20-02-2005 02:23In a little-noticed development, the UK Government's ID card plans include the capturing of a 'facial biometric' for every UK citizen.
