Dr. Miriam Lips posted an interesting discourse about the UK government’s Identity Management Policy and the UK Identity Cards Bill. She states that “To further facilitate this development the government will provide Identity Verification services for accredited organisations to check an individual’s identity, for instance when opening a bank account or registering with a GP.”

Does that mean Queen Elizabeth will become an official Identity Provider? She is a trustworthy soul.

Dr. Lips (gotta love that name!) provides an enlightening discussion about the historical progression of paper-based Identity, referencing “two models for citizenship attribution and the related issuing of passports to citizens, namely on the basis of ius soli (‘law of the soil’) and ius sanguinis (‘law of the blood’).” She proposes that the UK Identity Card is an example of “the newly developing model of citizenship attribution, the ‘law of informational identity‘.”
