As I said on the privacy lists, this is Newspeak for "open banking 
legislation". The spin doctors think if the prism is "consumer rights", 
well, that's ok then.

The explanatory memorandum (all over 85 pages of it) says this is for 
banking, energy and telecommunications, but will be rolled out across 
the economy eventually.

Good or bad? And does the consumer REALLY have choice about this or is 
it a Trojan horse to bait and switch just like opt-in became opt-out for 
My Health Record?

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you're gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
