"How about "EUROFUD"?....." Sorry, Brussels would never allow that! Or, rather, the French never would, they would insist it be called "EUROPID" as the French for "fear, uncertainty, doubt" would be "peur, incertitude, doute", and we know just how much the French hate having any Eurostandard in English. I'm betting one reason the Europol database seems to be so useless is because the French insist every entry has to be translated into French.

So, vive la difference, vive l'EUROPID!
