Charter of uk.politics.id-cards

(Not Moderated)

This group is for the discussion of all aspects of any legislation (including proposed legislation) relating to a National Identity Register and associated identity cards in the UK. Historical and possible future developments may also be discussed.


Advertising is forbidden. However, announcements of relevant political campaigns and events are welcome. The subject line must start with the word "ANNOUNCE: ", the announcement should ideally be short and contain a link to a web site for further details. The same or a substantially similar announcement may not be posted more than once per week.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common newsreaders comply with this, read <hhtp://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.
