‘Mr. Privacy’ leaves Parliament

Jan Philipp Albrecht, scourge of data-slurpers everywhere, and revered as the European Parliament’s “Mr. Privacy” is moving on to pastures new.

It was announced earlier this month that he would take up the post of State Minister for Energy, Agriculture, Environment and Digitization in Schleswig-Holstein, a prominent German region. The news is something of a surprise, given that Albrecht has made his name championing digital rights and has not noticeably been involved with agricultural matters.
