What's the betting in 18 months time Google, Microsaft, and anyone else with deep pockets will be added to that list when the Govt decide to sell a collected anonymised dataset.

I highlighted anonymised, because IIRC they anonymised our NHS records by postcode before selling them....

Postcodes just cover just a few houses (on average around 15)....

Not hard to figure out who in my postcode does all the Linux searches .. or searched for flu remedies in 2008, etc.
