Archie, Eurobites' official attack dog, stages a Halloween-themed bed-in to  protest against cyber-security failings in the EU. And sub-standard kibble.

the Hungarian protestors > The draft law levied a fee of 150 forints ($0.60) on each gigabyte of Internet data traffic,

I am happy for the Hungarian protestors. This would advantage more knowledge based industries. Not only that this new tax would have been passed on to the consumers, this would also have contributed to the digital divide.

Bravo, I must say!

Hungarian data tax I don't see how someone thought anyone could agree and be happy with this idea. I believe the protesters were right and the fee would have immediately passed on to consumers. "Fidesz had said the special tax was needed to balance Hungary's budget in 2015." It seems like someone in the Hungarian government wanted to get some easy money in. "Speaking on Kossuth public radio, Mr Orban said that "if the people not only dislike something but also consider it unreasonable then it should not be done..." I can't understand how come they thought this could be reasonable in the first place. :/ Archie and Minnie should meet one day. :D -Susan
