Ten MEP’s inducted into the European Parliament Hall of Shame for privacy vandalism

DIGITAL CAMERA

By Simon Davies

The time has come to commemorate those Members of the European Parliament who have worked so tirelessly to erode our privacy rights. The following ten MEPs are inducted into the EP Hall of Shame for their leadership in proposing negative amendments.

Much of this data was drawn from an exceptional site – LobbyPlag – which has created a very useful database showing how these parliamentarians have – for good or bad – affected the proposed reforms. This  page is merely a convenient device to promote their excellent findings. The data are based on the amendments proposed by each MP, and whether these amendments are intended to weaken or strengthen the provisions.
