Yes realised that after I typed it. like many, I use GA and don't look at raw log files.
I'm sure that the ICO is not expecting us to do anything that would be a business killer. At this point time I believe that we just need to give a lot of info on cookies and a way out. I know they are asking for prior consent but I also believe that they are not expecting that at the moment.
It will also be interesting to see what happens when other EU countries implement this. I thought the UK were first but have read something about Sweden having already implemented it but not found anything on how it is working, only comments that it could be a business killer.
