I dislike the confusion here, on the one hand there is the cost to the tax payer of this ridiculous system. Then there is the cost price that will be charged to each person who gets a card. The two figures seem to be being confused. The 300-400 pound per card quoted in a recent report was for the first type of "cost", the Home Secretary keeps talking about the second type of cost.

Perhaps it would be better to refer to the cost of the card and the selling price of the card.
