The Conservative Party manifesto contains the following chilling paragraph:
The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy. We will legislate to ensure that a form of identification must be presented before voting, to reform postal voting and to improve other aspects of the elections process to ensure that our elections are the most secure in the world. We will retain the traditional method of voting by pencil and paper, and tackle every aspect of electoral fraud.
Three things. First there are only two forms of photo ID in the UK. They are passports and driving licences.
The Death Of Democracy!

It doesn’t say photo ID, it just says identification.

That’s not how anyone has interpreted it
Myself I think it’s more likely to be yet another attempt to run out ID cards at which point they can fuck right off of course.
