I caught a good piece with someone (editor?) from Computer Weekly pointing out the technical problems with the NIR.
It was on news24 at just after nine. Was this what you saw or have the BBC finally gotten the message and started covering the scheme in depth?
News editor - he was on around 9:23-9:28pm. The earlier section was at 9:01pm. (And the clock on this board is an hour slow!)
Have they got the message? Hope so although News24 have covered the scheme before, interviewing 6 or 7 'experts' one day.
However, this was much more anti- ID Cards, and it's not like they couldn't cover our deporting of tortured Zimbabwean political refugees...

Needless to say, the BBC is potentially our best ally in this fight. We've been doing well without their help but you won't believe the difference mass media will make. Especially if it comes down to the Parliament Act or when e-passports and/or a Data Sharing Bill come up.
