Dooooooomed, Doooooooomed

Not us - ID cards.

The Sunday Times today carries an article that analyses a leaked exchange of emails between David Foord, Mission Critical Director of the Office of Government Commerce and Peter Smith, Acting Commercial Director, IPS [Identity and Passport Service].

Things were smelling a little fishy in recent weeks - first there was the unexplained delay in putting up the invitation to tender in Official journal of the EU, reported on this blog in June. Then there was the Government's repeated refusal to comply with the information commissioner's ruling that they release the cost-benefit analyses of the project (see previous post).

Expect to see the wheels start to come off in earnest now - time for us to put a stick in the spokes!
