Yes. But most people (especially in Ireland and perhaps the UK) distrust the EU/Brussels and its Nomenklatura more than they do NSA strange as that seems. The realist approach is that this kind of thing is going to happen. The idealist approach is that this kind of thing should not happen. The EU/Brussels bureaucrat approach is to wonder how they can get their snouts in this particular trough. However I don't think it is quite on the same level as that 1933 German law.
