Re: Umm WTF?
"Also in June, the Developers Alliance and IAB Europe held a round-table discussion in the European Parliament on “The impact of the proposed ePrivacy Regulation on the data-driven ecosystem”, with MEPs Michał Boni and Daniel Dalton. The event was framed as how the draft ePrivacy regulation would impact upon “innovative companies”, innovation being a key EU policy mantra which is often used to mean that nothing must get in the way of business doing business."
Having sat in sessions with him at the EP on the draft regulation I can personally verify that he has sang the song of a dutiful IAB spokesperson in every single event he has attended on the Regulation and refused to provide any evidence to support his position whilst refusing to acknowledge the vast mountain of evidence supporting the opposing view.
Just this week, he displayed his overwhelming ignorance in a series of tweets which were challenged by several long time privacy experts and groups to which he was unable and unwilling to answer or again provide supporting evidence for his position. I even offered to donate £100 to a charity of his choice if he could provide evidence of just 25% public support from a poll on his position.
