"Some of that budget will go towards security,"
Ha ha ha, we all know that it won't.

Indeed, he spoke in favor of HSCIC data sharing, on the basis that sharing genuinely anonymised data could lead to improved research and health incomes, then found out it was more a system for selling poorly anonymised data to all and sundry and started campaigning against it.
'That suggests the accounts were accessed using so-called credential stuffing'
I don't think it does. Its just as plausible that the bank is trying to imply they haven't messed up.
The quote should probably be
"We are reminding our customers to protect access to their banking accounts by regularly changing their passwords, by using unique passwords they are not using elsewhere, and by switching to another bank"
"its customers were never in any danger of having their personal information stolen via the PIN hack"
But they were in danger of having loans fraudulently taken out in their name, which is the main reason people are worried about having their personal information.
Or do they mean that 15 million people don't have to worry about their personal information being stolen from experian because it already happened in 2015?
"That would make the ratio between both bodies similar to Earth and the Moon."
Which is an unusually large ratio compared to what we see in our solar system. Most moons are much smaller in proportion to their planet (argue amongst yourselves over whether pluto is a planet, charon is a dwarf planet and the pair of them are a binary system.)
"2) Walking away from a table they had previously been invited to demonstrates that they never had a serious intention of sticking with the task to the very end"
"Do you want to do this"
"'This' isn't what you thought this was. At all. The words we used to describe this were completely inaccurate"
" I no longer want to do this"
"You never intended to do this"
You do know that time goes ...forward, right?
"Oh really ? Which one ?"
probably the one that denied ever working from them. "Voatz submitted the smartphone voting app to an independent security firm for review" has a silent "unsolicitedly", "much to their bafflement", "never head back from them" and "because their screams of despair were too loud"
"albeit some seemed to have access to possibly internal information"
In fairness to TSB, some people logged in and were shown other people's accounts, so there's no need to assume that any leaks of information came from an insider.
Disclaimer: I am not TSB's defence lawyer, and it seems unlikely I ever will be.
How an effective government would deal with this
"There's no way to isolate images for unconvicted people"
"In March next year we will pass a law requiring you to delete all images that can't be shown to be for people who were convicted"
"We have now found a way to isolate images for unconvicted people"
"When anyone registers at a new clinic or surgery in the UK[...], you do actually need to show some form of ID when you register or attend clinic for the first time."
Not at my surgery. I keep taking my driving license, they keep- accepted by date of birth (cross-references with turning up at the expected time) as proof of ID.
Why did a 5 minute job turn into a 2 month project?
- Because this is how we do things now.
- Because management have decreed it
- Because the devops consultant suggested it as part of a 30 minute talk that contained no other information or actionable suggestions
- Because the job of a devops consultant is to constantly churn a constant stream of buzzwordy goatcrap out of their mouths
- Because that is how snake oil works.
