But good idea...we'll set VAT on apple products at 100%....
But...HMRC is run by the BIG 4 accountancy companies!!
Vat is chargeable on the fuel price PLUS the fuel tax....
Dunno about that.
They send a letter to my flat every three months threatening me with court if I don't buy a TV licence.
Addressed to the guy who used to live there a few years ago, until he died.
I even told them he was no longer living.
They then asked me if I had his new address.
They still send threats to my address...
Crapita won't actually do it, they'll outsource the contract to others...we all know that.
So..the new bill gives the govt extremely wide "rights" to allow third parties, outside govt, to process data collected by govt (depts) for whatever reason they want...including collected health data, down to individual level, and you're moaning about "data fetishists"?
Remind me again about the massive amount of personal hospital health data released to organisations, unanonymised?
They pay others.
Star Trek Discovery is quite good...
I think they know that!
I think they don't care, they want all devices easily decryptable...
Just get used to being cold...the heater is thirsty on current...
Remind me....hasn't this aircraft cost over $1.4 trillion so far, and has a list of faults/problems that get longer each week?
They cost over £12 billion for two, with another £5 billion for aircraft, and are easily destroyed in a major conflict.
More navy willy-waving.
That depends upon your location.
For instance, if you are arrested at Wellingborough/Rushden, you will go to Kettering.
That is the nearest custody suite.
There are a very large quantity of locations where you will travel/be taken over 20 miles to the nearest place with detention facilities/room for questioning, with recording facilities.
I suspect that a considerable alteration to PACE will be needed, since the current recording media is required to be incapable of later alteration: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/177009/response/460589/attach/12/PACE%20Code%20E.pdf
The current body-worn video/audio recorders do not meet the legal requirements currently in force, and would be inadmissible in court.
In short, this seems deliberate circumvention of the legal requirements needed for suspect questioning.
Doubtless we will see more shrill cries from the Nazi-media, sorry-the sun/mail/telegraph, when cases are thrown out.....
This is the UK.
It doesn't "do" smart.
Look at the government......
I hope they see something interesting on mine....
Shit...it's in a wallet!
Every day hundreds of thousands of patients records, in paper-form, is transported around the country.
If you see a consultant, your paper records precede you.
Go into hospital?
They're there first!
They're not kept there either, after you get out, or die, they're transported to storage.
Complicating things now is the requirement that the same system has to provide the records to private healthcare companies outside the NHS.
And for those who think we're neck-deep in management, we're not.
Some 4.5% of NHS employees are primarily admin (1.3 million workforce (ish)), compared to a commercial company admin headcount of around 15%.
Lots of those are retiring...and getting new employees up to spec on a system heavily dependent on encyclopaedia sized volumes of paper records is hard work.
There are porters wheeling hundreds of KG of paper records around every hospital...every day....delivering them to wards and clinics. So got lost?
And you're surprised?
Wait 'til they're all digitised...then get lost in their entirety...
The NHS is a lot of small organisations.
Operating alongside a lot of private providers.
The private providers have new equipment, some of them, some have inherited ex-NHS equipment and staff.
The departments running maintenance and upgrades are under-staffed, under-funded and over-stressed.
That is, if that particular healthcare organisation has any in-house staff. Most are moving to external contracts and tuping their existing staff..those that want to stay that is!
Locally, the hospital is joining in a partnership with another area hospital. None of their IT is compatible. You'd be surprised exactly how much is networked via people talking to each other over landlines!
Then of course there is the ever-thorny problem of external contracts ending, and new ones starting, during which the new contractor fully realises the extent of the problem they're facing........
Oh yes. This is fun. NHS style.
Decades of non-joined-up non-thinking and under-funding....
So: a long line of trucks driving up each others arses with minimal gaps between, with automatons behind the wheel.
So: no change from now!
On another tack, will the automatic driving devices be parked-up dogging the Laybys at night?
Within the NHS, there are differing levels of security on data systems.
All personnel can only log into the system with a valid ID smartcard.
Differing levels of access exist depending upon staff position.
Hospitals cannot access GP data!
GPs' cannot access secondary-care systems!
I have no idea about police access to information, except to note that there are frequent prosecutions of personnel for illegally accessing data.
Both police and NHS systems leave an audit trail, and both are regularly checked.
However: shit ' appens
Noted the garden bridge is toast now....still no news who got the £48 million quid though...
Talking about bell-ends...
I note The Daily Bell End (mail) is leading with a "Health and Safety gone mad" headline...
They want to take us back to empire days..deaf at 20 and with tinnitus...
The sound level within the bell tower is around 117 DBA....well into the permanent damage to hearing range...also into the "shakes your entire body quite badly" range.
I think the clapper on the bell weighs around 200KG...
220mm out of vertical at the top...
If they refuse to accept a compromise payment/settlement, then drive away and come back later.
Driving away without paying is only illegal if you do not intend to pay...
Tax evasion is a crime.
It is long past time this happened...they have been raiding building sites early in the morning for years now...
With evasion running at between £30 billion - £100 billion plus, it is quite right to treat it as serious crime.
More raids.. Try raiding the sun/mail/telegraph... Please.
If they don't implement the EU GDPR in some way, then the EU data will not come here!
Trade will cease...
Because it is a small step from your personal vehicle driving itself, to all vehicles being fleet-owned and being called on-demand.
The end of private personal transport, the start of a new public transport system..
To be truthful...most employers have no idea what employment laws are, or even care.
Their behaviour towards employees is still based upon slave and master..
Doesn't cost that much if you're in a union.
Just the union dues....
All cases have to go through mediation before they get anywhere near a tribunal...
Superheating then inhaling propylene glycol you mean...
Maybe I can use antifreeze from my car/motorcycle....ethylene glycol?
Clearing the deficit is possible....but not along with tax cuts.
Clearing the debt is also possible, but not while still paying state pension benefit, or while funding a "free at point of treatment" health service.
And in any case, the U.K. has been in debt for a few hundred years, many times by a few hundred percent of GDP. Yet now a debt of 80% (+-) of GDP is a catastrophe?
Clearing the debt/deficit is a useful goal to persuade idiots to have less, pay more and (for all I know) die earlier.
It's all a question of how you calculate the standing on the UK globally.
So, in a real world: 39th.
Funnily enough, the CPS is due to report about the last elections alleged fraud...about the start of June. So that's dead in the water now!
And don't those irritating student people (80% in favour of remain) have exams around the first week in June?
Maybe we'll get a government that'll tell the media billionairarses to GTF....
I can dream?
While I can see that autonomous vehicles are inevitable, I wonder how they will manage on the public highway. There they will have to cope not only with the "real world" but the "surreal world": people in non-autonomous vehicles!
The biggest problem autonomous vehicles will have is non-autonomous vehicles.
No matter how complex the electronics, a person signalling right and turning left, or going straight on, will always mess it up!
Simply: autonomous cars will easily manage if they're on a road with similar vehicles.
Put one car driven by a person in the mix, and anything will happen.
And if every vehicle is driverless, there will be no reason to own a vehicle. Just call one from the idle-auto-car carpark.
It's Amber Rudd.
Not the brightest spark in the fire.
She probably needed speech tuition to pronounce "encryption"
On the other hand, the primary school where my grandchildren go to, has over 100 iPads...
Sounds like the sort of system the DWP will probably install.
Doesn't pay out.
Flags claimants as crooks.
Good job IDS is no longer torturer-in-chief
Access by clinicians and other nhs staff has separate levels of access and is logged and checked. Not so for private service providers, who all have a cavalier attittude to data handling. There have been many detected, and punished (instant dismissal) cases of access to personal data for personal reasons among the very large number of private providers. One person was dismissed for verbally informing a patients friends that she was attending a sexual health clinic (she was a cleaner at the clinic). With such a large amount of staff, problems will always occur. Each person accessing an nhs system has a personal access card.
Reduce the size of government further?
Take a look at the "massive rise in government employees under Obama":
People always empty both bowel and bladder when they die.
My assumption has always been that I (we) need more protection from the UK government than from foreign governments. Especially since the UK government seems to think it has a lot to fear from 60 million people deciding to head to Westminster armed with bad attitudes and bricks. Are there 650 vacant lamp-posts around Westminster?
Public sex is not illegal in the UK.
Causing offence by having sex in public CAN be an offence IF observed.
However, observing people naked/engaged in sexual acts, without their knowledge and/or consent is illegal: AND it is a serious sexual offence.
So is the use of cameras to record the scenes.
I think sentencing guidelines still start at 6 months suspended plus mandatory registration on the sex offenders register.
As long as they can extract a vehicle index plate number, they'll be happy.
Light reflected off person in sodum-light-illuminated area; minimal.
Light-reflected-off-person in LED illuminated area = much more.
A personal observation of course...but I have noted that road workers at night are MUCH easier to see in the LED illuminated areas, the Hi-Viz is much more visible. Translate that to kids walking along a road.
The lighting is being adapted in my town (Bedford) as a rapid-rollout..on the same lighting poles as the Sodium lights they are replacing.
I think you'll find that benefit disasters apart, various government agencies (GCHQ) are really quite good at handling vast amounts of data...and GCHQ USA (NSA) are better...and neither could really give a shit who is in power..
Really..the government could not give a shit about terrorists...they have more to fear from losing elections, or the people eventually finding-out that they have been selling them down the road from year one. The scandal of the expensesgate, where people found out that they were paying for floating birdhouses on ponds, lawn drainage installation and flats for mistresses has now faded, and that information is now no longer available. Now it's payback time....peoples memories are short.
Once upon a time we had care.data.....well, we still have it, it's just gone underground for now. And all your identifiable hospital data has already been sold anyway....
This is not about protecting people, keeping your children secure (capita has your childrens data....secure? !!) or protecting you from bombs on the underground....
