Citizenship Coursework on ID cards: A critical commentary on two contrasting sources of information

Extracts from this document...


Citizenship Coursework: A critical commentary on two contrasting sources of information ID cards have become a controversial issue in recent news as the issue raises lots of worries and logistical points. The public seem to be torn between whether or not it will be effective use of our country's money.
