Again please let

the punishment fit the crime. Ive I spray painted a massive cock on a government building would I get 12 years in jail. Probably just a fine and community service.

Web defacement is the same except it takes less hard labor to clean it after. If he did hack it, he has the skills to fix the mess, fine him and make him fix the web site as community service.

FFS - I could kill someone with my car and get less jail time.

To much following the Americans lead on this who also need to Get a fucking clue about proportional sentencing.

How many companies pay dividend = to the profits or at a reasonable return on investment.

Re: Depressing

100% agree. Trying to teach my dad to use Google is impossible. Hes an electric engine by trade but can't understand key words searching.

Training goes like this:

Me: Dad what are you looking for?

Dad: Holidays in Spain?

Me: OK, type holidays in Spain in the box.

follows him typing very slowly with is index finger.

Me: OK, see all these links on the right, ignore them their ad's same goes for the ones at the top.

Dad: whats a link?

I give up and just create loads of short cuts on his desktop for Gmail, Thomson holidays and the like.

Not forgetting that he and my mum some how think the password they use in work for work email is the same as the Gmail account I set up for them, and its some how the computer and my fault.

Re: withdraw from doing business in Australia

All to right "we wont invest in your country" or "we will take our businesses elsewhere" is total bull sh*t.

If the company is making revenue in the billions they couldn't afford to take their business else where, any CEO that did try would be dead faster than a lemming off a cliff.

Only solution is global corp tax 15% everywhere! problem solve.

Ofcom probes BT over fibre pricing after repeated gripes from TalkTalk

It did cost BT

Lots of money to stick long bits of glass up dark holes, then Pricing Infinity to Make Profit from other ISP's to recoup costs. Sound like a good business model to me. Maybe TT should invest a few £1billion in FTTC instead of bitching they cant have it cheap as chips after the BT infrastructure investment.

Like the tilting trains and a number of other things no doubt!

Its all about the skill level

There is an entitlement issue with many of this generations below 45 year old. An its get worse and worse the younger you go. You have 16 year olds with the IQ of a bog brush thinking they can go to UNI get a degree in painting nails or learning about some war 400 years ago and come out the end strait into a £40-50k job.

If all your skills allow if for cleaning bogs, better except that fact. Someone has to clean bogs and wash dishes its just to many people in the west think its beneath them even when they have no worth while skills.

The drop out rate

Do the stats point at how many people started and how many graduated?

First hand experience tells me having studied a technical BSc that between 30-50% drop out in the first year or take an easier course. The second years was the same as the 1st in regards to difficulty, followed by the 3rd year which really turns up the heat and a dissertation that killed the last of the dreamers.

Of 60+ people who started my course 23 graduated with only 6 of us getting a 2.1 or higher.

The graduation consisted of the IT, Maths and Physics departments as our numbers where so low, compared to Social studies and History that had 200-300 people graduate each.

Uni for many people is a piss up and excuse not to start work in a call center for another 3 years
