Re: RE: Forget It

I've a few more suggestions if Facebook wants more ex (Or soon to be) politicians (All ironic of course):

Tony Blair as head of Middle-East public relations...

Gordon Brown as head of accounting...

John Major as head of Human Resources...

Theresa May would make a good coat rack...

I'm not much of a fan of Google these days, but this is absolutely brilliant. Stuff the EU. More bothered about punishing innovation than trying to create and help European competitors compete.

IF a competitor has a better product, then compete with a better product. Don't fine the owner of the better product for not having a worse product for smaller companies to compete with.

Aha, so it does involve Onedrive. For anyone not aware, Microsoft was caught aiding the NSA and giving access to Onedrive. It's not paranoia, it's happening (or at least it was and now they cover it up better).

Instead of copying everyone's files to give to the NSA they accidentally cut them. The fix is identify which files are yours and give you a copy back.

"There are many more reasons than a lack of apps for Microsoft's failure in this space"

Like what?

Lack of updates? Also an Android issue in many respects, so that's unfair.

Advertising budget? Not an issue.

Likeability? No, people liked the products as the reviews note.

Choice? No, there were a few different phones a year, certainly more than from Apple.

Re: Dan 55

"Lies and "alternative facts" - it's established fact that Banks was funded from Russia, one Leave group illegally funded the other, and Cambridge Analytica targeted swing voters.

The Remain campaign was guilty of an insipid campaign and forecasting the apocalypse in the immediate days after the referendum (then again the QE probably helped), but I really fail to see where lies are on the same scale as Leave's campaign.

I'd say threatening the country with a punishment budget if they voted leave is quite despicable, as is wheeling out world leaders and handing them statements to read out in favour of your side, as is spending more than the agreed amount to keep it fair right before the campaign started, as is lying that no other country would trade with us if we left, as is extending the deadline and encouraging more youngsters to vote just to prop up your side, lowering the age limit just for the vote because it favours your side. That's just what springs to mind, there were many more lies from remain.

Vote Leave should never have been fined. They followed to the letter the rules given by the Electoral Commission, who now admit they got the rules wrong - And they gave them a fine for doing as they were told. The head of the Electoral Commission should be out of a job for that and the fine should be rescinded since it is unjust.

"Liar. Any military arrangements, within the EU were always subject to our veto. But, we will lose that veto - so they can do whatever the hell they want."

You're in denial. Germany is already doing it and has been for a while now. https://foreignpolicy.com/2017/05/22/germany-is-quietly-building-a-european-army-under-its-command/

"It is more like that we owned 3.5% of a house, now we want to sell our part of the house to the other 27 joint owners, and we want to include the money we spend on renovating the bathroom in the price"

This is probably the longest of these discussions i've seen where no one has bought up the "leaving a golf club" analogy. I have to say that i prefer this bathroom version. It adds variety.

What planet do you come from where trains aren't on the ground?

Your other post consists of an angry rant accusing me of being angry - Something certain remainers have been ever since the referendum. I'm not angry, i'm dismayed that people like you are still fighting the inevitable with your lies and "alternative facts" 2 years on from your rigged referendum.

Northern Ireland didn't get a vote - The UK did. The opposite of how the UK didn't get a vote during the Scottish independence referendum - Only Scotland did. It's not difficult buddy, we've had 3 votes now and you lost all 3. Over 75% of voters at the last election voted for parties pursuing Brexit. Move on and grow up you anti-democrat.
