previously the GSCB was usually only used in ad hoc situations usually as a last resort when someone personally knew someone from way back who might be able come up with something - this new legislation will make it the first place to call and will expand its use into any sort of activity the government frowns upon.
Re: At least two sides to this story
To be fair, the cars were quite good, given the state of engineering at the time but tended to have one ,usually major component that was duff and blew the reputation for rest of the car and they kept badge engineered models in producttion for far too long. The dudes supposedly screwing the bits together didn't help much either.
Re: small cells?

Re: Would you like a free personality test?
I fell for that too, in my younger days, however they took so long to figure out what my results were that i got bored and left which was probably a very good thing.
then another problem is what to do when your low on charge and you get to to charge up place only to find all of them taken. waiting round watching the other cars charge, the owners finally coming to collect them then you get to charge up. for an hour.
insufficiently positive coverage
Re: Oh FFS
If so have you thought about joining a political party and standing for office?

what do you mean, base 13 ? you only have ten fingers.
Re: Windows 8 FAIL
they need to make two changes 1 strip TIFKAM from win8 for laptops and desktops 2 include it for touchscreen based systems. how hard would that be?
Re: I'm not one to post general abuse...
well, that was the point of the law, it protected cads generally up to no good, making their detractors prove they were up to no good and since that could BE problematic, it would put the cads in the clear. In your case, people would say "Neil? pedo? that doesn't sound right' ( i'm assuming ;-) but "Tony Blair? (or 'Dave' Cameron) murderous sleazeball? yeah that sounds right' allowing people to believe anything about them and making sure they disappear much quicker from public office.
Re: Islamic hackers
As someone who holds a degree in classical history (which did wonders for a career) i am not very happy about websites devoted to ancient Egypt scholarship being caught up in modern day political struggles, however unfortunately, Egyptology was controlled by Zahi Hawass, who was closely connected with the Mubarak regime.

Re: Can someone explain?
because prosecutors earn their bread by sticking people away for as long as possible and more the better and if the defendant has annoyed the great and the good in someway, all the better for the ambitious young lawyer.
Re: @Zmodem the
I'd suggest that its not just a bag of sugar but adding to the total of kit that a defence establishment has figured out that a combat soldier needs to drag round.
Re: Hmmm, regulatory capture vs regime uncertainty
if El Reg's more lefty commentators wanted further reading then they might want to try Gabriel Kolko's "triumph of conservatism" first, Robert Higgs might cause their heads to explode.
traditionally pirates were merchants with close connections to a monarch who would give said man of influence a licence to plunder ships under the flags of some other monarchy, Depending on the annoyance to monarch, they would build ships devoted solely to fighting and these ships would go off fighting all over the place. People of lesser influence (or none at all) just lit a big fire and let the ship crash on to very jagged rocks.
You can almost imagine the scene, with bureaucrats from both services pointing that they role was fighting the German Navy and bombing Germany, not running around after merchant shipping or pointless flying around the North atlantic looking for submarines which were probably all underwater

Would they throw again if Jimmy Saville's name is hit?
Re: Seriously though...
That what a lot of people thought at start of July 1914. i wonder what happens when, for example, someone campaigns and wins an election to take their nation out of the EU or a split in the partnership over differing visions of the direction of the EU.
Mosley's House of Ill Repute
Has the law changed in England or is owning a property where sexual services are offered for money illegal? If so why has Mr Moseley never been charged with that since he owned the building? Not that I'm against that sort of thing but the law is the law.
the News of the world made the connection between Max and his Nazi Dad because the basement was done up like a concentration camp and since there was no pictures of hammers and sickles then obviously one might think about the Nazis. Might you, if someone did have Nazi inclinations, one would expect them to be giving out a beating rather than on the receiving end.

oh so thats how the undead track the living so effectively, use of a radio network. or is it because the living tend to be noisy and loud.

Re: You snoop on everything...
it was worse than that, various regional cop shops did ask HQ if they should make further enquires which were either ignored or stopped.
the article didn't say what sort of engines would used but i can't imagine the concord engine (or todays variants) being particulary aerodynamic perched up top like that (and sivelling in a vectored thrust arrangement) and the shape of the fuselages to cope with the stresses would. be all wrong at the different speeds. interesting idea but the costs alone would kill it.
Re: Some good may come from this
I would accept that as a compromise, short of abolishing it completely ( the clothing industry seems to do ok without it).
Re: Robert Long 1
No, you can't have a law to say no, never, shan't and then do it anyway when its convenient. Its like a person publicly violently decrying the gays then slipping down to the public toilets for some 'relief'.
Re: Logic and Actions of the US
the stories were indeed there if people cared to look for them but even those stories(usual buried) didn't revel the size and scope of the 'incidents' and the level of which they were authorized until wikileaks did.
You claim that government may deal with unsavoury governments for realpolitick, well why the secrecy? if its mutually beneficial then surely the citizenry could see that and accept it or not on its merits. You may have noticed form from your extensive reading list you recommended that the american public seemed to repudiate the philosophies of the unsavoury Bush/ Cheney team for that nice Mr Obama in 2008 .
And if our informants are rounded up because of an expose of naughty business our government is up to then I can only hope they enjoy their 30 pieces of silver in the afterlife.
Re: Logic and Actions of the US
Not if he is revealing information that exposes as lies what the leaders have said, how is a democracy suppose to work if the public has nothing to go on to decide if it's government won't tell it what's going on.
Re: Best outcome.
but he hasn't been accused of rape. he's wanted for questioning over a post coital withdrawl of consent. Little bit of a difference.
yeah they can be fancy or rather, gimmicky. Usually at the expense of something in the grimey bits, they have got better but so has every other manufacturer.
does this mean he slated it on a desktop? (gets coat, slinks out)
