Re: Speedo?

My 1986 Alfa Romeo had a full digital dash.

When it worked.

It had a habit of 'rebooting' while driving at night.

No lights, no instruments, no idea.

I think gravity will take care of most landings for you.

Retire maybe, work, no

With family connections and having been there a dozen times, I could contemplate retiring in the UK.

But work, hmmmm, no I don't think I could, despite the ability to do so.

If I'm going to suffer a wet summer, I don't want to be going out to work in it.

So, does that mean...

...they are recording stuff now that they are not allowed to, or willing to disclose?

So:

“the security services, the police, ASIO and so forth, are not asking the Government to require telcos to record or retain information that they are not currently recording.”

Asshattery is afoot.

If ever proof was needed.

He only needs to open his mouth.

As a previous (and fellow Tory) PM said; "Tony Abbott is a dangerous politician"
