FINALLY a deal on EU-US Data

OK so it was inevitable but its at least good to know that you (and me) can go to Europe after July 31st after an 11th hour agreement between the US and the EC on the handing over of data for US Homeland Security.


The DoHS is still somewhat in disarray and still have not resolved many of the grand plans they announced but cannot implement post 9/11 but this is a small step.

I have no sympathy for the airlines in this case who are complaining that it will squeeze existing tight profit margins. What do they expect - largesse?

Now we have this deal in place all is at peace between the US and its transatlantic counterparts. So now perhaps we can get on with the business of a full and true open skies and a free market across the pond
