every legal UK resident has an NI card
No they don't. It was only ever an 'NI number card', issued as a notification to the individual, with no legal meaning, and I'm sure I'm not alone in having no idea what happened to it once I'd memorised my NI number when I was 16.

Of course your idea could work if they made them mandatory, and verifiable, like some sort of, oooh, I don't know, some sort of identity card or something. Now what, I wonder, did the UK think of that idea least times it wad raised?
