The American President is currently out of favour with this blog, so I wish all those who are not Barack Obama or his fellow travellers a happy 4th July.
The USA's current wheeze is that to combat terrorism we should give them in bulk and with no screening details of all financial transactions conducted in Europe, eg when you use your card at the supermarket or buy petrol . We of course cannot be trusted with details of all American financial transactions so won't be getting them.
Our reply should be clear: 'Go...' No, I can't write that. But I mean it.
