House of Lords committee says right to be forgotten is unworkable

From this morning's Guardian:
A "right to be forgotten" – enforcing the removal of online material – is wrong in principle and unworkable in practice, a parliamentary committee has said. 
The House of Lords home affairs, health and education EU sub-committee has condemned regulations being drawn up by the European commission and a recent landmark judgment by the European court of justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg. 
The study supports the coalition government's opposition to the EU proposals on the grounds that search engines should not be made responsible for the content of the internet.
