Drivers Details Lost

No, not the one by Shakespeare (even though learning to drive is clearly a labour of love) but one of the many losses of data on its citizens by the government of the United Kingdom.

I'm less worried by the (yet another) loss of data, but the fact that this time the loss occurred in the *USA*. What was it doing that side of the pond in the first place? The US has a lower quality of data protection law and, more to the point, did all those learner drivers give explicit permission for their information (name & address) to be sent out of this country? I hardly think so ...
