The Estonians have kindly provided their service to anyone else who wants it, and in English...

The help finding next of kin is an interesting digression, but this whole system only works for those with a criminal record or non-EU immigrants. Any idea what proportion of the population of West Yorkshire that is?
I never carry ID - the grey beard says over 18, but then it's rare to even see police in rural Gloucestershire; What powers are being used to demand it?
This seems unlike GDS. Have they come up with an app in their first 7 years? The IPS prototype passport checking app wasn't theirs, but has gone and HMPO doesn't seem to have anything expected soon. There are NHS apps, but lo, so does gov.uk: First published:
27 March 2017 Asian Hornet Watch - new app launched to help people quickly and easily report sightings of this invasive species.
'Citizen' does not appear in GDPR; it is about "data subjects who are in the Union" or any processing done within the Union. Unlike the citizen's rights in the US, Europe including UK takes a starting point under human rather than citizen's rights. Knowing someone's citizenship(s) is not very easy (so hardly surprising NSA is having trouble answering a question). Long may it remain irrelevant for almost everything.
Since UK companies will want to provide services into the EU, it's hardly unreasonable for them to comply with the law where the customers are, so getting an agreement is clearly important, but it would seem rash to assume that the EU-US Privacy Shield will still be in its current form in two years. And there will presumably be the need for a UK-US agreement as well.
No, there was a threat about Calais, until someone checked and found it was a bilateral and not EU agreement, similar to the position on the border between US and Canada.
Just because we can now do stupid things doesn't mean that we will stop seasonal workers or make it harder for tourists. Our current mess is partly because of the refusal by the head of the civil service to allow it to consider plan B on the grounds that it wasn't government policy - ignoring the point that the government had, for better or worse, pushed this one over to the people. Of course we now hear that the Bank of England and Treasury have been working on it. But the last budget should have had in and out options.
Surely there comes a point at which it is fair to say that we have been trying to reform the EU from within, but have not managed to do so and have no new ideas on how we might? Even the (dubious) changes agreed are conditional on the UK staying, .i.e. were not accepted as worth doing anyway. We gave it a good try, and, as Churchill said, we wish it well.
Those who lead saying it's the wrong time chose the time. Gus OD thinks two years is not long enough, but what was his job when the Lisbon treaty was signed? People could do silly things and over-react; some of the threats have been quite creative, but the EEC banana problem dates from 1956.
GDPR is called a Regulation, but to get it though in the time given it has at least 40 places where national variation is allowed (e.g. an age threshold somewhere between 13-16), and presumably in each case there's at least one state that will have a variant (otherwise they could have agreed a common line), so those expecting a single set of rules will be sorely disappointed.
How hard is it to have a 999 app: Here's a picture of what's just happened, and my phone will tell you exactly where I am? Call back if you want more details, but you can probably already tell that we need a fire engine, or whatever. If twenty people call you can tell from the location it's the same incident.(Meanwhile, I'm trying to help the victims rather than waiting for an incident number.)
We aren't talking confidentiality here, just integrity, so the data (picture and a few attributes) is 'secured' with a good 1970's digital signature which any fool can check is from DVLA. Small market for trusted checkers, but the data has to be available in a convenient form: read from NFC phone, your website, on a plastic card, a QRC tattoo (but please don't) or any other method of your choice, so that it can be offered to the checker.
(Likewise, power of attorney needs a pdf digitally signed by the OPG, not an online system of any sort.)
The DVLA policy in 2009 as presented on the No2ID threads was impeccable; presumably someone has quietly changed it.
A4? If it doesn't fit on a POST-IT they aren't interested.
https://www.gov.uk/personal-tax-account makes it clear that the deadline-missing award-winning open but never-explain-delays Verify is insufficient for some of the 'services'.
They already manage a billion stamp duty transactions per year, and many other surprisingly large volumes https://www.gov.uk/performance/services
Privacy is not absolute but about balance, at least as defined in the ECHR, but would these clauses be the ones including:
Clause 5: the data importer agrees and warrants.. that he has no reason to believe that the legislation applicable to him prevents him from fulfilling his obligations...?
Those who needed the Safe Harbor rather than any of the other exemptions can no longer do so, but presumably can now sue the Commission for any costs in relocating to Bulgaria or Argentina and losses during the transition that are directly attributable to not correctly implementing a directive. That sounds like a large bill for the Commission, or rather for EU taxpayers.
Jordan gone? That might explain why there was no blogged answer to the question as to why there is no systematic structure for the websites to handle pages with versions in different languages.
gc.ca managed this before he was born, and .eu and directgov somehow manage(d).
https://www.gov.uk/cymraeg still has just
Is there anything wrong with this page? and the tag
Agile, innovative yet standard: quite a tall order. Would these be the standards that do not allow for Welsh, let alone anything foreign (Estonian or Korean names)?
You only need to look at the dates on the documents in
to see that the 'constant improvements from user experience' cannot have been fed into them.
Political debate is alive and well all over Papua New Guinea. The Wantok system does complicate running a Westminster-style democracy, but the interest in MPs' expenses is no less. E.g.
Anyway, we're due to get a brand new EU data protection regulation soon and that with trump the DPA. I'm sure if you have suggestions on how to stop that being abused as an excuse to do nothing or hide information they can be filed in the usual place.
defines the character set as
which is essentially ASCII plus the Euro symbol for some unexplained reason, so no accents of any sort, it seems. O'Donnell will be OK, bit no way José.
