Sir: At last we may be getting a national identity card - if we want one.

If this nadir of taste and design is Mr Howard's best effort he can forget it. I cannot believe that any minister can be so oafish as to put a Union Flag on a document. The idiot's guide to national identity; it looks like something out of the Carnaby Street of the 1970s. If the card has to carry a national symbol what is wrong with the Royal coat of arms that brings a touch of gravitas to our passports?
