What else did you think the ID Card program is for? Also look to the EU for doing a deal with the US, against your wishes, and even if it was against the governments wishes it doesn’t matter. EU Law has primacy over British Law anyway. Another reason to leave the European Union as soon as possible and focus on protecting British interests and our perfectly adequate BIll of Rights and Common Laws.

Under an agreement being negotiated between the EU and Washington., U.S. agencies including the CIA will be allowed to view details of bank accounts, travel plans and even the sites individuals visit on the internet.
A secret document giving details of the agreement has been leaked to the New York Times.
I don’t know what’s so secret about this, people should have realised this was coming when the US tried to get a deal to share data on air passengers, a plan that was struck down as illegal by the EU courts. If that was illegal how can this scheme, more intrusive and extensive than ever, be legal?
The deal will make it easier for American law enforcement organisations to obtain private information from banks, credit card firms and other companies – as well as from government offices.
In the past, companies handing over such details ran the risk of breaching European data protection laws. But these laws are expected to be relaxed under the new agreement.
Something similar to fighting illegal immigration simply by legalising it. Again, with no input from British (or any other People’s of Europe.) Not that the EU has any respect for the wishes of its property citizens. As always, the erosion of civil liberties comes under the guise of protecting the people;
American security organisations insist the information is necessary to prevent further atrocities such as 9/11.
But the deal came under attack from former shadow Home Secretary David Davis, who resigned as an MP to force a by-election on civil liberties issues.
He said: ‘Given this Government’s disastrous failure to protect data, whether losing 25million child benefit records in the post or laptops containing sensitive security information, the public will have real concern about the wholesale transfer abroad of its personal data, under a set of diluted safeguards negotiated in Brussels.’
Note, yet again, the ‘ruling from a distance’ which exemplifies Brussels. No wonder people compare it to a communist dictatorship.
