These are just some of the questions not answered in BCSL's
latest press release: http://dematerialisedid.com/BCSL/Crosby.html
Consultancy Services Ltd (BCSL):
BCSL has operated as an IT consultancy since 1984. The past five years
have been spent campaigning against the Home Office's plans to introduce
ID cards into the UK. It must now be admitted that the government are
much better at convincing people that it's a bad idea than anyone else
is, including BCSL.

– The Lost Enema
An everyday tale of simple Home Office folk whose lives are
turned upside down when they are told to spend 5.4 billion pounds
on an ID card scheme.
For years James Hall (Brian Rix) has run a harmlessly
ineffectual little department hidden away in the corridors of power.
Then his prankster boss Jacqui Smith (Jade Goody) makes a mistake
– she agrees to do something – and all hell breaks loose. Is the
Dark Lord Sir David Normington (John Malkovich) in cahoots with
Raytheon (suppliers of Cruise missiles to the discerning gentry)?
Why does the reclusive young mathematician (Marek Rejman-Greene)
keep finding dying foreigners in his spare room? And can Ruth Kelly
(Arthur Mullard) find the enema before there is a change of government
and her arch-enemy David Davis (Sylvester Stallone) takes over?
