People always empty both bowel and bladder when they die.
My assumption has always been that I (we) need more protection from the UK government than from foreign governments. Especially since the UK government seems to think it has a lot to fear from 60 million people deciding to head to Westminster armed with bad attitudes and bricks. Are there 650 vacant lamp-posts around Westminster?
Public sex is not illegal in the UK.
Causing offence by having sex in public CAN be an offence IF observed.
However, observing people naked/engaged in sexual acts, without their knowledge and/or consent is illegal: AND it is a serious sexual offence.
So is the use of cameras to record the scenes.
I think sentencing guidelines still start at 6 months suspended plus mandatory registration on the sex offenders register.
As long as they can extract a vehicle index plate number, they'll be happy.
Light reflected off person in sodum-light-illuminated area; minimal.
Light-reflected-off-person in LED illuminated area = much more.
A personal observation of course...but I have noted that road workers at night are MUCH easier to see in the LED illuminated areas, the Hi-Viz is much more visible. Translate that to kids walking along a road.
The lighting is being adapted in my town (Bedford) as a rapid-rollout..on the same lighting poles as the Sodium lights they are replacing.
I think you'll find that benefit disasters apart, various government agencies (GCHQ) are really quite good at handling vast amounts of data...and GCHQ USA (NSA) are better...and neither could really give a shit who is in power..
Really..the government could not give a shit about terrorists...they have more to fear from losing elections, or the people eventually finding-out that they have been selling them down the road from year one. The scandal of the expensesgate, where people found out that they were paying for floating birdhouses on ponds, lawn drainage installation and flats for mistresses has now faded, and that information is now no longer available. Now it's payback time....peoples memories are short.
Once upon a time we had care.data.....well, we still have it, it's just gone underground for now. And all your identifiable hospital data has already been sold anyway....
This is not about protecting people, keeping your children secure (capita has your childrens data....secure? !!) or protecting you from bombs on the underground....
No early elections
Fixed term parliament act.
Unless they wander through repealing it..which could take months and months...
Now the act has been passed, it can be amended to include banning privacy-enhancing tools at a later date. AND without parliamentary scrutiny.
Best idea I've heard from .gov.uk EVER.
ANY intelligence in government is a good idea. Pity about the lack of natural intelligence...still, artificial is better than none..
Lose a vote of no confidence
A two-thirds majority of the entire HoC
Revoke the fixed-term act
If it's anything like here, I'll bet drunk female passengers have a queue of drivers.......
The "experts" on data security are missing the point....their proposals will hinder the government in its acquisition and use of peoples data...I have seen nothing from government that leads me to believe that they wish to be hindered, or have any control put upon them.
While people seem to believe that care.data is behind them, this would seem to be yet another attempt, by government, to bypass any control upon them.
Please do not forget, before care.data got "shelved", highly personal data from hospitals had already been dispersed to the private sector...
I have seen NO interest from government to have their data acquisition controlled, just attempt after attempt to get law on the books by the back-door..
Try Norfolk. Large areas struggle with 2G! With the amount of Air Force bases in the place, you would expect spoof 4G to be wall-to-wall!
"NHS handed over GP data to 150 groups against patients' wishes"
With more and more cars connected to the mobile network via GSMA, all they need is the imei of the mobile, and shut the car down..
There is also the high probability of a media second-agenda behind the "story".
Still, when all chemo is stopped because of the "risk", and cancer deaths go through the roof, the media can then start a "why are thousands more dying from cancer in NHS hospitals" story?
Gotta love the media: Win-win, either way is a winner for them.
Now with a recovered Hanger, paid for by the builder of the new village currently being built around the airfield.
They downsized social services some years ago.
The police are always moaning that they are now social workers as well as law enforcers.
The discharge provisions are what you should look at: The court cannot discharge the order. It can only be discharged by agreement between the person AND the police,or by the police. Not the court who imposed it, without police consent.
And while he has committed no offence, breach of the order is an offence and carries a custodial sentence.
Most car drivers can't spot a bike with its lights on and the rider in dayglo kit.
Most truck drivers can't spot anything.
All cab drivers are wankers, most have one headlight not working!
It'll kill dogging.
"Incidentally, I'm probably hopelessly old-fashioned, but I rather thought that British political discourse was based on reasonable discussion, considered arguments and respect for one's opponent. Not shouting at them like you're in a pub brawl after six pints"
We've got bigger bombs than them...
A lot of voters have forgotten who the previous conservative leader was.....in a year many will have forgotten what the referendum was about. By the time of the next election, many voters will have a hard time remembering their name...
The people who buy/lease BMW and Mercedes cars/vans are not going to be bothered about a minor tariff .... they'll just drop a few percent off the list price and increase the parts price...
Good old UK.
Still parasitic on other nations.
I'll wait for 5 years or so....we're in the EU for a minimum of 2 years from the date that art50 is invoked. So looks like we're in the EU until 2020...until the both leavers and remainers don't know what will happen.
Regulations governing standards/quality are applied not only to finished products, but every component within it. You cannot export a car without compliance in total. Not only that, but when you ship the finished goods, they will be held for inspection. Try running a just-in-time operation with that arrival lag. Presumably the re-vamped UK regulations will be exactly the same as EU existing regulations, or is it to be a ditto re goods arriving inspections. Now I hear we are going to try to creep back into the EEA via the EFTA rear entrance at a massive financial disadvantage, and the ffff-four freedoms will still be there. Weird. Vote leave to remain.
Stranger and stranger.....
"One of the schemes to replace care.data is called the “Single GP dataset”. The government’s review into care.data proposes to send all patient records from family GPs to the central database without the express consent of patients. Once in the system, it can be “sold” to any customers of the ‘Health and Social Care Information centre”, including private companies.
The government buried this announcement on the day of the report into the Iraq War. It is hoping no one will notice this new land grab on our medical records. We can’t allow the government to sneak out the same medical record data scheme under a different name.
Our community successfully fought the original care.data scheme. Thanks to the power of our community we rose up and forced the government to backtrack and ultimately scrap the scheme. Now the government is hoping to flog off our medical records, but this time under a new name and without those pesky safeguards. We have to act to stop the privatisation of our medical records"
Change.org seems to be worrying!
Never Going To Happen.
Opt-out allows for the fact that they don't really want your data to be confidential.
Samples sent from sexual health clinics to pathology are anonymised by using postcode and DOB....
If you think this is a problem that is ever going to be solved, you have not read this:
Note that local authorities can hold your health data for some/various reasons...that alone is a recipe for leaks....
I guess jailbreak users may be even more peeved....or not..
CVE-2016-4654: Team Pangu
Good job Jeremy Hunt has gone.
He'd have head-hunted the guy...
Expensive toys for expensive boys.
Carrier group meets cheap tactical nuclear missile/shell: carrier group 0: nuke 1
So when a carrier has a full complement of aircraft, their cost will exceed that of the ship?
And after we stagger out of the EU, everything you buy from there will have VAT charged (as now) and import tax charged...
Income tax at 33%, 60% and "pay some if you feel like it please Mr Branson/Murdoch/Barclay/Rothmere"
People that buy Mercedes or BMW are unlikely to bother much over a few percent tariff....and cars made in this country will have parts made abroad, which will also, if we foresake free trade, have an import tariff imposed upon them.
Because of the long list of exemptions from the VWP...
Which includes traffic convictions...and certain diseases..
And they do know, because of information exchange between the UK and US.
And they will know lots more as soon as the EU stops interfering in us giving personal data away to Uncle Sam/Tom/ETC
They bought an annuity. Fixed income. The problems are going to be faced by those buying pensions now. Baby-Boomers: Always handing their troubles to the upcoming generation!!
The Scottish gov already have a webpage for possible future citizens:
Alternatively, if you have Irish parents/grandparents, you can go for that option.
If you don't like it: Don't use Tescrap Banking.
Problem solved. They're only skimming a deal out of providing an alternate route to services you can obtain directly from the bank group Tescrap use.
And if we depart, our sold products will surely have problems abroad anyway if they infringe upon a patent...
#voteleave at the bottom of your post.
Well, I'll put:
