Bristol city council votes against ID cards

Growing local opposition to the ID cards bill:

One of the biggest city councils in England has voted unanimously to oppose the government's plans for ID cards on the grounds that they could lead to abuses of human rights.

Bristol city council, which is led by the Liberal Democrats, yesterday became the ninth local authority in the country to officially oppose the plans, which will need the support of local government if they are to succeed.
