ID Card websites

Tips For The Technically Terrified
by Alan Connor

Hello, and welcome to the list of all the links we mentioned last time on The Daily Politics. Thanks for dropping by!

This time, we were having a look at ID cards.

The site where people get together and promise to do things is called PledgeBank. You can see the pledges relating to ID cards at http://www.pledgebank.com/resist.

We also talked about a campaign that was bringing together the Lib Dems and Ukip, the Greens and the Freedom Association - that's called No2ID.

We saw a couple of quotes from the blogosphere: the worries about "the biggest Peeping Tom of all time" were from groupblog The Sharpener (strong language warning), and the "pontificating dissembling jackass" comment was from libertarian blog Samizdata. And the Labour campaigner who's been getting attention as "the one blog in the UK arguing in favour of ID Cards" is at BrightonRegencyLabour.

Finally, and the link I suspect most of you are here for: the dancing dogs. The animation we showed a short clip of is called The Very Model Of A Modern Labour Minister, and was made by designer Eclectech and musician Doghorse - and there's a Wizard Of Oz-themed sequel called The Swizz Of The Cards.

If you've spotted a great political site you think we should know about, do drop us a line to alan.connor@bbc.co.uk, or using the form below.

Mind how you surf.
