Fury as now the EU demands you tell the GOVERNMENT every time you take a train trip or drive your car

The EU’s member states have given their “broad support” to the collection of the personal data of people travelling on high-speed trains and even on Europe’s roads in an expansion of a directive that covers airline passengers.

Under the passenger name record (PNR) directive, an incredible FORTY TWO separate pieces of information will be collected in advance from those travelling on trains or driving, including itinerary, bank card details, home address, seat number and baggage information. This will then be passed directly to the POLICE and INTERPOL.

How will they get my bank card details, home address and baggage information when I drive my car on the autobahn? Cctv cameras are mostly illegal in Germany to protect privacy, so they can't take my car plate number and get information from there.

And as you'll be out of the EU by Halloween there's no need for Brits to worry about EU regulations (that might never come) anymore.

I think it's only international coaches for driving, and even that got a relatively lukewarm response.

You mean Flixbus and the like?

They've just taken the gloves off a bit later than BlightyGov with privacy.

Plenty of roads in the UK already have NPR cameras that are linked to the DVLA's database. They can't really be used to tell who's in the car, but the registration can reveal who it's registered to, their personal details, the car's insurance, tax and MOT status and so on.

Kenya is forcing a Draconian digital ID system on the people. Looks like elites worldwide want to keep a beady eye on the common man.

Actually, this stuff strikes me as funny from a body that trumpets a devotion to freedom of movement.
