CRB looks to ID cards to solve accuracy woes

From The Register: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/08/27/crb_id/

Millions could be asked to provide ID card and fingerprint data to get a job under new systems being developed by the Home Office following a collapse in the accuracy of background checks.
News of the plans emerged in the response to a Register Freedom of Information Act request to the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB). Today campaigners warned it could be used to help impose ID cards through the back door.

So the Home office is responsible for both the CRB and the massive ID-cards-will-be-a-failure database?
If they can't handle bits of paper, would you trust your  DNA with these people?
