No ID Cards For The Welsh

by | 7th, February 2009

SAY no to ID cars. But you can put all your details – and those of your friends – on Facebook, MySpace and other social media, and the Government can see them whenever they like.

Still, in Wales there will no Welsh ID cards – at least there will be no small ID cards:

Wales Online reports:

Despite Welsh being used on driving licences and passports, the language was not used on the design of ID cards, which are already being issued to foreign nationals.

“One of the other challenges is the length of the Welsh language -you have difficulty just fitting in the words on a very small ID card. But we are sensitive to these issues.”

So says the Home Office: Adding:

It “has adopted the principle that in the conduct of public business and the administration of justice in Wales, it will treat the English and Welsh languages on a basis of equality.”

Equality being that you are all citizens of the brave new world.
