Really?

When was the last time you had to submit to a search and a copy of your hard drives?

Do you think that the UK Is any better?

Seriously as a Yank who had the unfortunate chance to pull a job in the UK, I was routinely harassed by your border control agents because one twit claimed I was stealing a job, when in fact I was there to train and bring up to speed several people instead of the work being kept in the US. And once you get a stamp, you're hassled until you get a new passport every time you fly thru London.

Oh yes. International travel is so much fun these days.
