Yep, sorry. I suppose UK citizens would be even more offended if I suggested that EU directives play the role of a super-constitution since each of these has to be transposed to local legislation... Perhaps this particular right to electronic privacy should be included in the bill of human rights, or something else with the pretense of being universal. Is it too late to amend the Magna Carta?
Anyway, the traditional right to privacy should be enhanced by including electronic surveillance and data retention as effective means of violating privacy. Bad things can happen, and are happening in places like PRC.
