Submission + - EU Parliament use child porn to log Google search (wordpress.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A written declaration in the European Parliament plays the child porn card to be able to store all searches on the internet.
Written Declaration 29 says that the "Commission [needs] to implement Directive 2006/24/EC and extend it to search engines in order to tackle online child pornography and sex offending rapidly and effectively". What they don't say is that Directive 2006/24/EC is the Data Retention Directive, and that storing all internet searches probably won't stop child pornography or sex offenders, but is just another way to take us one step further "1984".
