"f it was one of the Mirror(Reach) group then there is a button - I was wrong about measurement it is called information and storage."

And it does absolutely nothing to the huge list of pre-ticked opt-in boxes. At least it doesn't in my browser. Possibly it might if I opened up to the huge list of sites that want to run scripts on that page but that defeats the object. And in any case it doesn't affect the basic offence against GDPR. By being pre-ticked they're opt-out not opt-in.
