Jacqui Smith gave a speech today at midday on ID cards to an audience invited by the Social Market Foundation
, at the end of the event the glass she was drinking from during the Q & A was whisked away* by a NO2ID sympathiser. This picture was taken this lunchtime – the glass is now undergoing a technical process at an undisclosed location. This will not only identify Big Jacqui’s fingerprints, it will allow them to create a plastic foil stamp
that will enable anyone
to leave her fingerprints behind. Last March German hackers cloned the German Interior Minister’s fingerprints
The picture above shows the glass sitting on top of the speech she has just delivered assuring us that biometric data will be secure. See also here and here for more details on the hunt for Jacqui’s fingerprints…
*On legal advice the NO2ID campaign plans to return the glass tomorrow to the speech venue.
