The Tory leader wants dedicated officers, under central command, posted at every major port and entry point around the British coast in the battle to keep out terrorists, drug dealers and illegal immigrants....

Last night Liam Byrne, the Home Office minister, said Mr Cameron's decision to scrap identity cards showed that he had no real interest in placing national security first.

The immigration minister said the Tory leader's proposal to ditch ID cards would leave the country "defenceless against illegal immigration"

A card made of plastic is not an

Sounds like a "super-police" who will take their orders from far away, slowly usurping the powers of regular police agencies.
