Telephone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, email and other details of British air travellers will be available on demand for all of the EU’s police forces, including countries such as Bulgaria and Romania where corruption among law enforcement officials is widespread.
The system, billed on Wednesday as an anti-terrorism measure, (aye, right), will track all travellers and will also allow any EU police officer access to the data on suspicion of a serious crime, including offences that are not a crime in Britain.
Civil liberties campaigners fear the new EU surveillance system will make Britons more vulnerable to miscarriages of justice amid growing concern over EU policing measures and the lack of safeguards or judicial standards in some European countries.
MPs have also been angered that the government is actively negotiating, to hand over the information without first informing the House of Commons, making a “charade” of ministerial promises not give up justice powers to the EU without parliamentary approval.
Welcome to the new sharing EU. I certainly don't want my credit card details given to some thieving bastards in Romania. What happens if Turkey, gets in. Russia, It's just one more step towards a global world where there are no longer any countries to belong to, just continents and large organisations like the EU.
What a legacy for our children.
We should dig that fucker Heath up and hang the bastard!
