Transsexuals who have yet to have a sex-change operation will be entitled to two ID cards, Home Office Minister Lady Scotland of Asthal has said.

One would be in their gender at birth and the other in their legally-acquired "gender of designation".

Lady Scotland spoke out as the controversial ID Cards Bill cleared its latest hurdle despite suffering two defeats in the House of Lords.

The bill's report stage was completed. A third reading is set for 6 February.

Still, they can always sell the spare one to a terrorist / benefit cheat / illegal immigrant down the local car boot sale I guess.

Will they have to pay twice?

Can't imagine too many Islamist terrorists wanting to go around looking like Pete Burns anyway.

Almost certainly a better plan 'B' than Milan's.

According to the oh-so-reliable 'The Register', they will indeed have to pay twice. It's only "fair".

For quite a while, do try to keep up with this war on terror. It is a well known fact that most if not all benefit fraud goes to fund Bed Linen.
