"The Home Office said yesterday that the UK biometric passport was one of the most secure in the world and while it might be possible to copy the chip data it was not possible to modify or manipulate any of the data."
Aren't the Home Office the ones that, despite all the tech industry evidence to the contrary, think this is a good idea? That haven't got the first clue about completing a project on time, on budget, or even one that does what it was supposed to?

I have CDs at home that have copy protection on them. Doesn't stop me ripping the tracks to mp3 and then burning those to a new CD.
