What other news is being missed due to the Abrahams affair?

Do you trust this Labour government with your personal data? How about the governments of France, Germany or Italy? How about the governments of Greece or Portugal? Still happy, how about the governments of Romania and Bulgaria? How about in the future the governments of Albania and Turkey? Why am I asking this surely irrelevant question? Because of the "Stork", this is the pan-European scheme that the Home Office is taking its part in which aims to make all EU electronic identity networks "inter-operable" - within three years. Further into the future, "Stork" is to allow easy access to social security, medical prescriptions and pension payments; just the information you want to be made accessible to a poorly paid local government official in Oradea?
