Periodically I go through a UK directory I run looking for dead sites. I do this manually because a) automatic methods do not easily show up (eg) domain parking or altered function and b) because it's a relatively small number of sites.
Last night I ran through approx 130 sites. Of these, discounting the half-dozen "dead" ones, something like 70% tried to load me with cookies (I always use FF+NoScript and have cookies set to "ask me"). Of these, a handful tried to feed me a dozen or more cookies for (mostly) different adverts on the home page.
I can't see that lot (all UK owned) being converted to "opt-in before setting cookie" before the end of May.
