The Government don't need to tag you! The supermarkets are doing it for them!

Wal-mart are one of the leaders in RFID, a lot of their products contain RFID tags.

They have a huge database containing the ID numbers of items purchased.

So, "Mr X" buys a jumper. He then goes to another walmart store and buys some shoes. The database shows that someone wearing a jumper with a particular ID then wemt on to buy a shoes with another ID. etc..etc

This info can then be cross references to your payment card details, thus the circle is complete.

Whilst Wal-mart only use this for commercial purposes, a nefarious agency could do exactly the same thing and use it for people tracking.

Solution? Go out shopping in your wife's clothing every now and again to confuse the system.
