The Queensland Smartcard Driver’s Licence

Is this the biggest privacy threat this year? If so, nominate it for a Big Brother Award!

Current Status

It never pays to rely on statements by politicians. It appeared that, by early 2005, the Queensland Government had accepted the arguments put to it by many, including the APF in late 2003, that a licence should not be a multi-purpose identification token

But Beattie, presumably in trouble again and needing another diversionary tactic, re-announced a multi-function card at the end of 2005.
