    From my time in retail, I used to have the occasional customer who wanted alcohol but didn't have any ID on them whatsoever, which was extremely infuriating when they would get annoyed at me

    If you don't have a driving license that only really leaves you with your passport. If you lose that though then it's quite an expensive mistake :afraid: So do you think there should be another form of ID? Should we all have barcodes with our identification on just to make it easier? What are your thoughts?

    There are some countries in the world, usually where there is a national identity card, where it is compulsory.

    No, I don't think so, it's an entirely perosnal decision, of course if you're expecting to buy alcohol you should know between that to go out without it

    We do have National Identity cards that you can apply for if you don't have anything else.

    I think making it compulsory to carry information like that is highly unnecessary - it's their own fault if they're not carrying it :3

    Actually, I do see benefits to that, such as identifying unconscious or dead people since they'd be more likely to have ID on them, but on the whole I don't think it'd really benefit the system.

    I think internet anonymity should be removed completely
