no2id call in the pledge

So my pledge got called in:

     Hello, you have received this message because you signed my
     pledge, "I will refuse to register for an ID card and will
     donate £10 to a legal defence fund but only if 10,000 other
     people will also make this same pledge" back in 2005. In fact
     11360 other people also did. Thank you all.

     You may have seen that recently high-profile figures have begun
     to follow you, by committing themselves to non-compliance too.

     The Identity Cards Act 2006 is now law, and - despite growing
     opposition, significant delays and rising costs - the new Prime
     Minister shows no sign of calling a halt to the National
     Identity Scheme. In 2008, the government intends to pilot
     fingerprinting and to issue the first 'biometric residence
     visas' to non-EU foreign nationals as a precursor to
     registering British Citizens.

     The legal powers to do these all these things will shortly
     begin to be applied. Now is the time to call in the legal
     defence fund part of the pledge.

     Please send your donation, by cheque made payable to 'NO2ID'
     to:

     NO2ID (Legal Defence Fund)
     Box 412
     19-21 Crawford Street
     London W1H 1PJ

     If you also send in your contact details (we have no way to
     identify you otherwise - this message is forwarded by
     PledgeBank) we will keep you informed about the NO2ID campaign
     and how we can, working together, stop the disastrous National
     Identity Scheme. We will not pass your details to anyone else.

I never really thought that it would get this far, sense prevailing way before now, how wrong I was.

I'm still waiting for someone, anyone to tell me why an ID card would be a good thing? What problem is it actually solving?

I also wonder how many of those who signed the pledge will actually pay up, at least one..
