I'd expect the new rules to say that a connectivity ISP such as TalkTalk 
should log the fact you had a session with your bank. But nothing more 
than that.

Is who you bank with a secret? And might knowing who a criminal banked 
with be a useful step in apprehending him (after you've used a more 
traditional warrant to get sight of his bank statements), if he's just 
ripped off a few thousand innocent consumers by a few tens of pounds
