....uses civil enforcement officers to penalise car drivers stopping for a pee in a layby!
With an armed drone, they can penalise them with the death penalty and save all the court time...

....a rather long-winded way to give everyones health data away to the USA drug companies.....
I'm not too worried whether the EU likes it or not......the financial services/legal services are going down the pan anyway as everyone goes to various EU countries.....this will just help them on the road...
Not even bothered about the cookies, they get deleted every time I close a window anyway.
Let's face it....nobody with a brain is going to trust the English government with anything anymore...
Government has been so underhand and so elusive, about any and all of its attempts to hand over patient data to practically anyone that asks for it, that the only conclusion is that they can not be trusted AT ALL with ANY control of confidential personal patient data.
No doubt there have been several bungs of cash into various govt ministers bank accounts [offshore]
"Sweeping changes to the collection of health and social care data, which would allow the Government to commodify all of individuals’ personal medical data, is being proposed by the Health and Social Care Secretary, in a new shake-up of the health service.
The changes are being sold to the public as a new right to “own” your own health data and, in Matt Hancock’s own words, “will deliver better treatment for patients, better health results for people who need care and support, and better decision-making, research”.
Phil Booth, co-ordinator of the health privacy platform medConfidential, said: “The proposal is a complete con. You can’t own your own data. What it does is make it a valuable tradeable commodity that can be sold on to other people and organisations.”
Plus, the Government’s claim that it is providing a new right to patients does not stand up to scrutiny – since anybody can currently request their medical records from their GP with no questions asked"
As I have said before: The opt-out, currently, only affects the extraction of personally-identifiable-information.
The extraction of anonymous information cannot, at the moment, be opted out of.
My GP practice website lists all those that currently have unrestricted access to my medical data with no restrictions in place.
It's too long to put on here........
I'm just assuming that they forgot the reason they kept the GDPR, incorporated into the DPA, was so that information exchange could still take place UK-EU, and back.
Or maybe they're just looking to bork, totally, the financial/insurance system?
Letting IDS have any part, in any-thing, is a recipe for shit-soufflé.
The Adenovirus blood clotting problem was known in 2006.
Obviously, Oxford doesn't read.
Or maybe they do: "The Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is a replication-deficient simian adenovirus vector, containing the full‐length codon‐optimised coding sequence of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein along with a tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) leader sequence"
"Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is classified as a serine protease (enzymes that cleave peptide bonds in proteins). It is thus one of the essential components of the dissolution of blood clots. Its primary function includes catalyzing the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin, the primary enzyme involved in dissolving blood clots"
Actually, your opt-out matters not.
Your data can still be used in research/planning, even if you opt-out, if information that can identify you is "removed".
Your confidential patient information can be used in a small number of situations, such as national statistics.
In an emergency where the safety of others is affected.
The NHS collects confidential patient info from NHS trusts/local authorities/private healthcare providers, providing care to NHS patients. Research bodies can request access to that information.
The only exclusions noted are that marketing and insurance can have no access......but given that an increasing amount of healthcare is via USA companies.....
All that came from the NHS App.....
The USA system, which charges you 100 times the cost of meds?
This healthcare system:
"Tens of billions of dollars are estimated to be lost in the United States through healthcare fraud each year. The National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association estimated that as much as $300 billion, or 10% of total annual health outlay in the United States, is stolen through fraudulent activity each year, compounding the challenges of high healthcare costs"
Yes....but since uber was, according to the ruling, an employer at that time, then they should have been paying VAT on the whole fare not just the 20% fee they extracted from the drivers. So they now have to pay the revenue the VAT they didn't pay, and the income tax...and national insurance contributions.....and they cannot end uber-then to become uber-now, because they will still be liable for the VAT...
