    Post UK: 'All travel plans to be tracked by Government'

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...overnment.html

    Anyone departing the UK by land, sea or air will have their trip recorded and stored on a database for a decade.

    Passengers leaving every international sea port, station or airport will have to supply detailed personal information as well as their travel plans.

    So-called "booze crusiers" who cross the Channel for a couple of hours to stock up on wine, beer and cigarettes will be subject to the rules.

    In addition, weekend sailors and sea fishermen will be caught by the system if they plan to travel to another country - or face the possibility of criminal prosecution.

    The owners of light aircraft will also be brought under the system, known as e-borders, which will eventually track 250 million journeys annually.

    Even swimmers attempting to cross the Channel and their support teams will be subject to the rules which will require the provision of travellers' personal information such as passport and credit card details, home and email addresses and exact travel plans.

    Shouldn't the British government first worry about keeping data safe before even pondering collecting more?
