Re: Between my wife and myself
There's a hospital database, and a national one, or two, and each department keeps a list of addresses and uses that, except when individuals within it keep tehir own list.
You'd think they don't trust the central ones.
And yes, you should be asked each time, and ideally should answer truthfully.
Those words may not mean what you think...
and probably are not an accurate paraphrase.
As written, you say that if Ms Clinton used a server, the dept had to approve it.
I think you are trying to say there was a prohibition on operating, of using an operating, server before approval.
And I'm not sure that would be true either - all candidates will have email systems.
You notice the NHS England/NHS IT model of opting out is not the usual one of
"If we don't have permission we won't acquire and hold the data"
it is the model of
"If you've requested we not have your permission, we'll acquire the data, and add a note that we are not allowed to use it".
Then they failed to add the note, and used it.
It is systemic. Or systmic, perhaps.
The rule I proposed
Years ago, that each access to your healthcare record must produce a line in a report to you which is given to you by default would have fixed this.
Who looked, at what, why did the say they did, what is the right they assert to do so.
And optopts were not requests!
They were orders.
There is a corollary to an ID card
Which is that it should be illegal to demand of seek any other evidence of identity, residence etc if the ID card is presented.
There is a desirable design feature as well, the questions the card should answer should only be those necessary:-
Is this card held by its owner?
Is the owner over 18?
Is the owner licenced to operate a car?
The rest should not be disclosed, or demanded.
We have several
"The UK has its own bilateral trade relations with the US. It also works through the European Union (EU). In 2007, the EU and US set up the TransAtlantic Economic Council (TEC), with forums for business, consumers and legislators to promote open trade."
You might be thinking of an FTA or a single market or a customs union perhaps?
20-30 agreements the minute...
That class of error seems
are current/persistent pattern with MS.
Where is the other error which causes the MS product not to be affected?
I recall Front Page setting left margins slightly negative - off the screen - while unaccountably IE didn't accept negative numbers for left margin, and interpreted them as zero.

Re: @ adam payne
No it isn't.
General Practices have always had the destination of the notes concealed - patient leaves and registers elsewhere, the notes are called for by the health authority (by whatever name it is known that week).
Our HA used to run the courier service, collect them, sort them, send them out again, of forward to the other HA if the patient had moved a long way.
Since then assorted lashups have come in, but it still isn't the receptionists faults.
Re: The more I listen to the EU...
You miss the point.
The EU have observed our standards being adopted elsewhere, not demanded it, in the same way California's standards have been adopted across the USA in many things. The standards are good, and compliance with them pragnatically ensures compliance with others, thus avoiding doing the work twice.
If the EU allowed the UK as a third country to interfere with the EU standard then other their countries would expect similar opportunities.
There is nothing in it for the EU in subordinating any element of its standards to outsiders, so they won't.
