Labour's Zarah Sultana was dealt a blunt dressing down by Michael Gove on Thursday when she lamented government plans for voter ID.  Sultana addressed her question to Gove via Zoom, beginning with a very old Boris Johnson quote about ID cards.  However, ID cards and voter ID are not the same thing.  Of course Boris was opposed to ID cards back in his pre-Covid libertarian days, but Zarah's quote dated from a time in which it was a Labour government proposing them.  Gove skipped over this fact and highlighted one of the 'Labour-voting' demographics on her list that would supposedly be hit hardest by a voter ID requirement - the working class.  Gove pointed out that working class people were now more likely to vote Conservative than Labour.  Ouch.
