Young people in London are getting the chance to get their hands on an ID card, the lucky so-and-sos.
[efoods]The next stage of the Home Office’s attempts to get the cards accepted is to target those privacy-disregarding, Facebook-obsessed youths in the capital. People aged between 16 and 24 years old who hold a current or recently expired passport can apply for a card from 8 February.
Using the same lines as in Manchester, where the pilot was started, young people are told the card will help them buy booze, cigarettes, mucky movies, travel to Europe and even open a bank account.
Of course there are other ways to prove you are old enough to buy booze without handing over £30, all your personal details and a promise to always keep them up-to-date.
