I can only assume that the downvotes are from people who dislike the fact that UK has the lead over the EU, since the facts are correct. The original UK Sale of Goods Act dates from 1893, and fines available under the DPA that preceded GDPR were £500k max, compared to, say, the German equivalent which was limited to €300k.
