So much happening all of a sudden…
The ID card bill passed through its House of Commons vote – here's the straight-laced report from Kable. Richard Allan, the LibDem MP, has a great post on the bill including how Blair calling a general election could through a “wash-up” procedure automatically pass the bill. Uh-oh.
Richard has been busy in Parliament… During a liaison committee meeting with Blair he got Tony to admit he was a technophobe, didn't know the address to Directgov and couldn't recall when he last met his head of e-government. Oops. Transcript here, search for 'Allan' to get to the juicy bits
Finally the good people at MySociety (including Chris Lightfoot)have launched the sequel to FaxYourMP.com called WriteToThem.com where you can easily contact your local councillors, MP and MEPs. It's very impressive and easy to use – well done guys.
