I'm Sitting Here Wondering If This New Law Is Not Actually Retrospective...........

.....for example, in 2017 the Royal Free turned over 1.6 million records to Google/DeepMind without asking even one of the 1.6 million citizens for permission.

Where have those 1.6 million records ended up?

How many other Hospital Trusts have done something similar already?

DeepMind.....Palantir.....and on (with money changing hands) to BigPharma, BigInsurance, ThePolice, GCHQ.......and so on.......

.....and all 1.6 million records carefully stripped of their anonymity (such as it was!).

Just wondering!!
