thatś ¨wattsupwiththat.com¨ finished then.
Gotta be extremist ´cause it doesn´t agree with climate con, sorry, change.
"I guess the one hope that it becomes more interesting lies with quantum mechanics"
More interesting, or more incomprehensible?
Re: How else is the NHS supposed to do this?
Since the NHS is now a collection of private companies operating under the "NHS" umbrella, one is compelled to wonder exactly how they are supposed to access your medical information if data-sharing consent is withdrawn (as mine was initially, and now will have to be again).
Unless you have missed it, your GP will now offload any treatment needed to another provider. Minor eye surgery, such as cataracts, may well be done by a private hospital and paid for by the NHS (it is locally).
Where NHS hospital physiotherapy departments were once the first choice when needed, now private physio is the first choice (get five sessions free, pay for the remainder @ £76/Hr) (been there, been done by that). GPs' get a kick-back for referrals....
Of course, if there was separation of medical service provision and other uses of the information then this would not be a concern. Except there is no such separation. At present even the local councils taxation department has access to your information.
Re: How sad
That's a loser. Then the competitors spend nothing on R&D. You'll obviously be a success in business.
Re: Hm, seven times more likely to get hit by an asteroid?
Not hit him, be specific; HIT CLEGG
I'm waiting for the blame to be apportioned to climate change.
Maybe the cash-cow of global climate change/warming/cooling is not attracting the cash anymore: quick switch to splatting meteors?
It ties in quite well to military spending as well, never forgetting that space spending is not increasing as much.
What would he have to say that anyone would want to listen to?
In fact I should imagine that everyone who is anyone in international espionage would rather listen to a cat crapping rather than Willy.
As for GCHQ modifying his phone...........why bother.........let everyone listen, after they've been bored by his blather as long as the rest of us have been, they'd be candidates for suicide watch.
Re: The triumph of commerce over democracy
When did they pass that?
Since when have "they" ever listened to the people?
Now, if it was a green thing, we would be knee-deep in FotE/Greenpeace(assuming any are out of jail yet) and everyone with windmills on their estates.....
Maybe we should be thankful for small mercies?
If you want DAB cancelled you'll have to suggest it contributes to global warming.
You can never really trust governments that sell their people down the road, can you?
Maybe that's why the NSA don't trust the EU?
None who live in it do either!
Re: side note
They eventually reach the compromise that suits the EU burocracy, not necessarily the citizen.
HMG didn't give them the money, or lend it to them, they bought-back their own bonds.
Re: As I said in that published paper
Maybe it will slow the use of algos' as market-riggers though.
I mean, 10,000 transactions in the final milliseconds of the market......we could do with a spanner in those works!
Re: I have a related question
If you insist on a car analogy:
They're not putting sand into an engine. They're increasing the fuel tax and putting a limiter on the engine.
Hopefully a tracker will be engineered in as well!
Re: This deserves support
They'll build a working, secure system, then the consultancies can crap on it at great expense ad-infinitum.
Re: Cheaper huh?
Don't knock those shitty stations, they are the only way to get into the jobcentres.....the phone is no good (at local-call-rate, and never answered)...you have to go onto the JC terminal/phone to actually talk to anyone.
Re: Variety is the spice of life
As the years go by, and the companies providing the service/s enlist MPs' as "executive arse-wipers", you will realise that it will be, along with others, the poster-boy for another way to bleed the taxpayer dry to enrich the rich further.
With inbuilt back/front/side/top/bottom doors for NSA/GCHQ, and loads of other multi-letter combinations to extract data and sell it.
..you mean CRAPita, that well-known public-money-spent-in-India company?
The one that "outsources" all the child data it holds to third-world countries for processing?
I will be able to call for help while I'm freezing my arse off on a FCC train because the heating is off in winter, after nearly dying of heatsroke in summer because the heating was on ?
Re: North Sea blues
The PAC don't "do" reasonable, or logical, only stupid.
You gotta wonder why anyone would install anything, given that as soon as it gets installed the freeloaders whine so much the gov forces the original installer to let other pay [peanuts] to use it...
Anyway, everyone knows the only people who need fast fibre are the pirate and porn downloaders ;-)
Re: But where's UK's budget 4G?
you just turn your finger around and it gets messed
you mean like clocking-in with a pair of gloves on ?
Re: Try getting back to work yourself Oli 1
Actually it was built on the bodies of slaves and uneducated britons.....like 8-year-olds sold to a life as ships boys, or shoved up chimneys. Since we can't do those anymore, we're f####d ?
Re: Think of the children
DVLA will sell your information to practically anyone for less than a fiver. ACPO also sell info from the PNC. Credit card companies sell it to reference agencies, they "sell" it to DWP/HMRC.
Re: Think of the children
Quite right. And think of the training/education costs saved. Import trained workers: Sack the trainers. Problem alleviated for a while.
Re: Truth or consequences
Honest, and truthful. And prepared, and able, to back that opinion with fact.
Re: A vital purchase
If you wander along to the EU website, you will find the same jobs advertised, by the same organisation (dwp), but the site works....and the advertising employers get PAID for every applicant they employ...but never in England..
"It most places, that would be fraud and theft"
What can I say.
With all OTHER organisations it would be fraud and theft, for government it is pretty standard.
And we still have the NHS data to go....exactly where it will go is not known yet, but probably India or China.
At least the viagra emails will go to the correct people then..
it's not wasted. It will be returned via contributions to the party.....
You mean we should do something about those that landed us with 300-billion, and growing, PFI contracts ?
Like Thatcher and Major ?
Or maybe about the similar sized contracts given to private health providers to run hospitals/health services since the last general election, all tied to long contracts with onerous release terms ?
Re: I am in support of this idea.
Not forgetting the benefit agency, department for work and pensions, local taxation departments, local council council-tax benefit departments, everyone concerned with housing benefit. And doubtless ATOS, if they have anyone who can read.
Don't you mean: "the aircraft carrier with no aircraft overspend update will be released later"
I'm still waiting for justice for the thousands deprived of employment by the employment blacklisting. I suspect Similar for the illegal acquisition of data by various companies/people. Both the higher echelons of the police, and the government, are steeped in corruption.
Re: Why are they being given chances?
Risk assessments = a legal requirement
Diversity targets is the police and social services, nobody else bothers, not even the gov.
Directly paid would need pensions...have you seen the liability of gov pensions ?
Re: Be afraid
They're not the only ones. A new store near me vets job applicants via Scotland, because there is no restriction in Scottish law to doing enhanced checks on people, as there is in England. But the information still comes from the police in England.
Re: and the upshot is...
Not only does nobody give a monkeys where I was last week, even I don't, if I could remember, which I cannot.
Some people, many in fact, will avoid paying tax no matter what the rate of taxation. That fact alone makes the "laffer" curve largely irrelevant. the curve is based upon the theory that as taxation increases many people arrange their affairs to avoid tax....in this world they set-up their business/life to avoid tax no matter what the rate. Except for the common Joe...who has no money to "buy" complex avoidance routines, so pays the tax demanded. And of course, many companies get fined large amounts each year because their avoidance was actually evasion. It looks like a particular search giant may actually have used UK staff to makes sales in the UK, then claimed they were made in the RoI.....hopefully true...with a whacking fine arriving on their UK/RoI doorstep.....not forgetting that if HMRC can prove deliberate evasion/fraud, they can then go back many years and claim for them as well.....
who really cares anyway, apart from Apple?
Re: The "Wooow" juror comment
Mybe it isn't "peers" but "pee-ers" ?
I should care ?
Freeview was total pants, and knickers.
I now use freesat, still pants but at least the picture isn't a mass of large squares every time a truck/van drives past.
Yeah, I care. With EE giving me an average of 138kbps on 3G I think I'll wait until they get 3G sorted before I think of going to really high speed.
Of course they can [employers ask].
They just get a crb check done....anything under 10 years shows.
Or get an enhanced crb check done, everything ever shows then INCLUDING rumours etc.
The very minor problem that an ecrb check is only supposed to be done in respect of those with unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults has never stopped those with no access at all from being ecrb checked [even though it is illegal]
Then there is "safeguarding" as well.....................................................
Re: Hang On
The database, in various guises, holds any information the police may have on a person. It's called "intelligence". A person does not have to have a criminal record to be on the pnc, although it helps!
Try giving a subject access request to your local farce....even your motoring convictions show...and if you drive a vehicle registered to you, they also have data on that vehicles location/date/time.
The problem is that the RSPCA are not on the list of those with direct pnc access, given in here:
but are sold that access, which has been retrieved by a limited company (acpo) who are not, seemingly, ones with direct access. They must therefore be retrieving the information by use of the police.
I doubt that particular route is [yet] legal.
But, given the rampant criminality of both national and local government departments, I consider no action will be taken. Ever.
" that a piss up in a brewery would be the absolute limit of their coordination"
You think ?
I consider that remark massively optimistic.
Re: Air conditioning?
Who would use electricity to heat where gas is available ?
Electricity @ 13.4p/KWH (half price with off-peak) or gas @ 4.66p/KWH (first useage 8.4p/KWH)
With my shiny new high-efficiency condensing boiler (gas) I can also save....well....no! Because the circulating water is only "allowed" (preset maximum) to be heated to 65C the thing is on a lot more....so now larger rads are needed. Joy.
No financial incentive.
That would be why some are investing in large diesel-powered generating plant....as in several megawatts a time.
There's no secret about the wind generator subsidies, but maybe nobody mentions that downgrading them to lower capacity can earn them greater subsides.
