Re: So predictable !
Why blame Westminster, this is what people voted for in the referendum.
Not quite what you expected? must be someone else's fault

Many moons ago I was doing desktop support at a large insurance co. and a call came in from a rather irate PM who was insistent her Hard Drive was on the way out.
Off I went, ran the full set of checks, no issue - she was not convinced, said it was making a buzzing noise and she'd had that before when a HDD died.
I stood in utter silence as she tried to replicate the fault, nothing, not a peep.
Happened a few more times over the next day or so, and on at least two occasions the helpdesk did report hearing a buzzing noise while she was on the phone to them.
Off I went again, by this time fully expecting to be told how I was useless etc. and again, tested everything, and was out of options. Suggested we swap the base unit, after much huffing she agreed and as I dialled up the lads in stores there it was!
"See I told you it was making a buzzing noise"
Bit of poking and there it was, a pager down behind the CRT .
Not even so much as an acknowledgement...
Still got that first aid kit in my cupboard, gets me some odd looks when i go looking for something and it falls out.
Oh, and you reminded me I almost wandered into the breakfast bar they had setup for the Juve players that morning, did get a nice selfie with Buffon though, my Son is a goalie and was very happy for me/jealous as hell
The US won't sell F22 to anyone, the production line stopped after only 180ish planes were delivered and there are already parts shortages.
Canada uses the F/A18 Super Hornet for the most part and in terms of multirole it is probably better than the Typhoon or anything else on the market just now.
"Many of you will have read over the past week about the Equifax US hacking incident. I want to reassure you that ClearScore is not involved in this hack. Our systems and data remain secure.
Equifax have confirmed to us that no UK financial data was compromised in this incident."
Sent on 16 September, the day after Equifax admitted 400k UK people's data had been moved offshore by 'accident'
There is a slight issue with your supposition that OFCOM would be able to force VM to open up their network.
VM's network was built with solely private capital, the Openreach network was primarily built with public funding and then upgraded.
At a client site doing some desktop support stuff and get a call from a bloke in the mechanical engineering office, saying his CD isn't reading properly.
So I wander up and he's sat there cursing the PC, that the CD drive is crap etc.
So i press eject and out comes the RS Components CD, which he tells me he's just gotten as people keep nicking his paper copy, but they won't be nicking that. It's at that point i see he's helpfully scratched his initials into the printed side of the CD, nice and deep so no mistaking it's his, and you can see clear through the disk!
The Japanese effort was a seaplane carrier and only launched amphibious aircraft, though it did launch the first at-sea air raid on another ship.
The first ship capable of launching and recovering aircraft was HMS Argus, a converted liner, built at the Beardmore yard in Clydebank - she remained in service into WW2, primarily as a landing practice and aircraft ferry ship
