Whats to stop UK data subjects from suing Google for this?
Firstly, individual UK subjects don't know if they are victims or not.
Secondly, evidence of loss is required. That loss can be financial, emotional, whatever, but evidence of loss is required otherwise the case will be thrown out immediately.
I believe there have been instances of private prosecutions being brought for breaches of criminal law (i.e. no evidence of loss is required) but even if found guilty no sentence can be passed so it is entirely symbolic.
