The Register reports that the anti ID card campaigners No2ID have succeeded in their long standing aim to obtain samples of Home Secretary Jacqui Smith’s fingerprints.

Hot on the heels of announcing plans for draconian new communications monitoring Smith is taking forward the batty ID card agenda (first victims: overseas people, second victims: airport workers).  Now it seems a glass bearing her dabs has been “borrowed” and those precious prints preserved, presumably for some nefarious purpose.

On the other hand, there doesn’t seem to be much mention of this triumph on the No2ID website… and it’s not clear from the Register what the dactylograms in question will be used for.

Apparently Gordon Brown’s the next target,,,
