Labour: Free British broadband for country if we win general election

SERIOUS CALLERS ONLY

Re: @steelpillow and ImAlrightJack

So hang on a second, this GPON shite you mentioned - not heard of this before but from what i've just read it's actually a fibre connection that is spliced and shared between users.

How many times have we heard of "fibre broadband" not acutally ended up being actual point to point fibre. are we in for the same thing yet again with this next roll out? surely this should be point to point fibre?

Oh noes! New 'CRISIS DISASTER' at Fukushima! Oh wait, it's nothing. Again

SERIOUS CALLERS ONLY

Did any of you lot actually read the article?

Sorry to shit in your cornflakes during all this mutual black slapping. But Lewis page says "the scientific consensus is that absolutely no health effects due to the Fukushima radiation will ever be detectable"

However that's not exactly what the article he's linked to suggests.

"The UNSCEAR committee’s analyses show that 167 workers at the plant received radiation doses that slightly raise their risk of developing cancer. The general public was largely protected by being promptly evacuated, although the WHO report does find that some civilians’ exposure exceeded the government’s guidelines.
