"I was expecting the UK to be first to bat, but no, it's Australia."

The UK is still part of the EU, and may well be still subject to EU rules for some time to come. The UK has already had surveillance laws ruled illegal by the ECJ. Certain parts of the EU have too much relatively recent experience of surveillance societies. I'm not surprised at all that the Aussies are the test case. It might have been New Zealand, but the US and Canada both seem to be better at grass roots protests than our antipodean friends.
