The problem is that the EU might be on the verge of cancelling TTIP and you may find yourself post-Brexit in a situation where the conservatives enact it in the UK...

I think the version of "double bagging" he is talking about is where you put a brown paper bag on your head, just in case the one on Windows 10 falls off...

A young business woman I saw do a presentation recently asked for feedback from the audience on how they think she could make her company more successful. My advice was "Never appoint an accountant to the company board"

Re: Secret treaties, silenced majority
This is the same Cecilia Malmström that publicly stated that she does not get her mandate from the citizens of Europe. So yet another unelected mandarin.
my chickens always love to wander around the garden, they've even dug themselves a favourite spot/dirt bath under one of the fir trees. Yes, they do not like the rain, and a wet chicken produces less eggs. I average 5-6 eggs a week each from my two...
Thus has it ever been...
One day a small farmer, looking to sell his eggs, hit on the idea of advertising them as "free range eggs". This struck a cord with consumers and soon they were queueing round the block to buy his eggs.
But this upset his neighbour, Mr Factory Farmed Hens. He was jealous and he went to his paid-for politician and said "The term 'free range' is unregulated. The government need to define it and more importantly define who can use it." And the government granted Mr Factory Farmed Hens a well paid place on their newly setup quango where he quickly set about enacting legislation and licensing which effectively allowed him to call his factory hens and the eggs that they produced "free range". As for the small farmer- the new legislation was so restrictive and the new licensing so expensive, he was banned from ever using the term again.
now there's no loyalty bonus, there's nothing from stopping people from leaving (and letting HR know that's the reason for leaving during the exit interview)
Re: That backdrop...
America doesn't have a democracy. At best it has what can be called a "representative democracy". Due to the Electoral College it is possible for one candidate to receive the most votes and still lose which would not be possible in a true democracy.

I would guess it's because in America, card fraud is a liability of the customer to prove that fraud has taken place, whereas (in the rest of the world) it's up to the credit card company.

Re: Then start showing ads
same in Ireland- we pay for a TV license, the government props them up with taxpayers money, and they show adverts. And now they are talking about implementing a "Broadcast Tax" on top of that.
"Err, they do actually. I've come across a couple of news sites in the last few weeks that stop you reading the content if you don't disable the ad-blocker"
I've noticed this too- a quick edit of their CSS soon gets me the content though...

"Rich people buy more stuff.... ie pay more taxes"
No they don't- you might want to check out (rich person) Nick Hanauer's view on this- A person making 1000 times more than an average worker does not buy 1000 times more groceries.
maybe then all you need to do is tighten direct access when it comes loose.

Re: What a corker!
My thought was "Neverwhere" straight away. Had to check to see if Gaiman wrote the episode. Ashildr did a very passable impression of Door.
I was really surprised to find that it wasn't Torchwood behind the whole thing. Aliens hidden in London? Advanced tech? RetCon? Had TW written all over it. And remember, the Doctor did tell Ashildr about Captain Jack.

Re: Why shouldn't the BBC be allowed to protect their property?
No- it's the opposite: Something that you've paid for should be available to you.
Re: Why can't the BBC offer a subscription to iPlayer for those overseas
In Ireland, I pay a TV license and have to watch adverts on the channels I paid a license for- I'd happily give that money to the BBC- especially as I only watch the local stations for the US series that they show before the UK does (Homeland for example)
I think I'll wait for Guitar Hero Live- the song list is longer (and much better)
