Rejoice! ID Cards Delayed Until 2012

In news as fantastic as Spurs finally beating Arsenal, the Government's ID Card scheme appears to have been delayed until after the next election.

The BBC is reporting that the Tories have received leaked documents laying out the timetable for introduction, and the majority of the roll out appears to now be expected in 2012.

So if the Tories or the Lib Dems happen to knock Labour out, then both are expected to cancel the plans. A hung parliament is also likely to kill the bill as the Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has promised to undertake Civil Disobediance if he is forced to have an ID Card.

And while the Government deny the details of the leaked document, the rumours will persist.

Gordon Brown, he's looking tired, don't you think?
