    The following is just gobbledegook, e.g. '5.

Digital Service. register. Adoption of ID Assurance when market developed'

    With regard to Slide 5: I note the (convenient?) omission of the Query engine that will effectively federate the locally-held electoral registers - conveniently cross-matched with the NINO - that makes this *whole scheme* a direct analogue of the Home Office's ID scheme, and Treasury's 'Citizen Information Project' before that.

    To call this a mere 'electoral registration transformation' misses the point. (Deliberate myopia or paranoid political PR?) Anyone smart enough to engineer a system like this should know that - or they shouldn't be building population-scale systems at all. And you people aren't stupid.

    The Coalition may have scrapped the Home Office ID scheme; with this programme, Cabinet Office is bringing it back.

    And in the process it is perverting some of the very principles of our democratic 'contract'. Compelling or coercing people to vote is one thing; coercing people to *register* to vote is about building a register, not about widening participation or preventing fraud. (Fraud which in large part was exacerbated by 'innovation' with postal votes.)
