Abstract

I've recently noticed that the more sugary the breakfast cereal is that I'm eating, the greater the tendency I have towards counteracting this by increasing my intake of 'news muesli'. So, this morning, spoon in my right hand, and smartphone in my left, I tucked into my diet of newsfeeds and came across this article in the Guardian, which indicates that it's not just me who's interested in what I eat.

They reveal that a new European commission counter-terror plan will require the blanket collection and storage of personal data records, for up to five years, of all passengers flying in and out of Europe. The House of Lords has said that the 42 separate pieces of information collected will enable the police and security services to deduce aspects of passengers' history, conduct and behaviour. Two that caught my eye were whether someone books a one-way ticket, or orders a Halal meal.
