I think this thread has gone way way off topic.
Getting back to the original topic, in my experience this seems highly exaggerated.
I suspect a much low percentage of people have really been "harmed", certainly not half of the UK.
Question, and I hope you don't find my question harmful. Is asking someone to define what it means to be harmed off topic? Is what being conveyed as harmful subjective or objective? And by what standard is something deemed harmful? Who is the standard which we ought to follow? The individual, society (one nation to another), or a standard bearer greater than? That is, if we wish to voice our reasoning and to exercise our rights to influence policy rather than to follow them after the fact (which is an act that demonstrates ones source or standard that they think should make these decisions). Are our lawmakers representatives or a monarchy? In my previous posts I am actually trying to build a "bridge" and understand those that oppose what I personally believe. I am addressing the "why" people believe anything at all.
I'll stop if Staff suggests I am off topic. I'd hope that lawmakers care about why others have reservations or oppose said laws as well as support them. If the UK and EU or wherever else want to try to enforce their laws in the U.S. I'll try to raise enough signatures in petition to spread awareness to our lawmakers. Let's put a "diode" or "read only" in the internet lines from and to other continents or countries to make the internet only one way from the U.S. <sarcasm>
