"Only the guilty have something to hide"
"Only the guilty have something to hide" - how many times have we heard that about ID cards and why we should welcome them - well..
The government is battling to ensure that estimates of the benefits and risks of identity cards remain secret.
The freedom of information watchdog ordered the Department of Work and Pensions to publish its findings about how the cards could fight ID fraud.
Now the department has decided to appeal against the information commissioner's ruling.
Now do you really believe that if the reports showed how beneficial the cards are going to be they wouldn't be fighting tooth and nail to prevent us seeing them?
