What happens if we get invaded?

A Conservative MP has asked the government to reveal whether the planned ID card database will have a 'self-destruct' system which could be used in case of foreign invasion.

Anne Main MP asked the Home Office what contingency plans are being prepared for the "rapid wholesale deletion of data held on the National Identity Register in the event of invasion by a foreign power".

She also asked what plans are being prepared for the deletion of the National Identity Register in the event of a coup d'état.

The National Identity Registry will store personal information such as address, name and date of birth, as well as biometrics for identity card holders.

.. the Martians possibly?
