The ID card scheme has so far cost £250M.

15,000 cards have been issued.

The scheme is now to be scrapped.

It would have cost less to issue those people cars instead.

(Average price for a new car in 2008 was £14K . Cost per card was nearly £17K.)

More to the point, it cost them about £35 a head, and the rest of us about £5 a head.
