REPORT ON EUROPOL FROM HOUSE OF LORDS COMMITTEE
These reports are worth reading. About the only stuff from the UK on European issues that is!
Surprise surprise, the UK database is not compatible with Europol’s. What they don’t say is just how incredible this is, as Europol’s is based on Windows architecture. Your blogger wrote a piece on this some years ago. the BBC piece doesnt mention the legal obstacles to data sharing. I would suspect the full report does. Ah Europe! It doth make idiots of so many otherwise rational Brits.
