Beer fingerprints to go UK-wide | The Register

There appears to be a scheme to check people's fingerprints before they drink alcohol.
This is wrong. The government will be collecting data on where you drink. This will also give them the names of the people you hang out with. There is no reason for the government to need to know this information, and definitely intrudes way too far into people's lives.
Interesting to see that councils are able to setup a ID system that is hugely cheaper than the government's proposed cards...
