Re: Brexit Schmexit and other Perverse Costly Abominations

The DUP are a required party. Required to counter SF/IRA and keep NI the green and very pleasant land that it is. Certainly the nicest part of the YooKay to live. When the IRA go away so will the DUP.

No doubt also dreaming of an entirely whitelisted internet with biometric access through heavily governed ISPs only. In fact an intranet not an internet at all.

Hacking charge dropped against Nova Scotia teen who slurped public records from the web

Stu Mac

Re: "no grounds to lay charges"

Even if you are innocent, when blokes with guns start shouting with you, best make no sudden moves and act as submissively as possible. Unfortunately Mr Menezes had no such opportunity. He was wrongly identified in advance and executed spontaneously on the basis of that identification. Or to frame it another way, Jean Charles de Menezes was murdered.

Re: RE: RE: Tigra 07

I don't see that is is very different from CCTV, particularly with facial recognition applied.

There is also a very simple opt out, turn phone off or place in flight mode when not in use.

Note that your newer EU car is also now tracking you, although they say the emergency call system is not tracking you it's a SIM. It's tracking you!!

Re: Scandinavia

It has been obvious to anyone with a brain that Banks should be given this cost. All bank cards and credit cards to have photo ID and biometric data onboard. No excuse for most people after that.

Stu Mac

When asked "minorities" tend to quite offended anyone should assume they don't have ID. It tends to go with a home, a job, transport (personal or public), a bank account, a passport, social welfare. If anything they may be MORE likely to be able to present ID.

The simple truth is that anyone a nation should want to vote has ID or can obtain such with trivial inconvenience

.

Almost certainly people with no presentable means of identification or who refuse to obtain such should not be voting!

Washington (no, not that one) to pass hardcore net neutrality law: All ISPs in state must obey

Re: Policy FAIL

Long overdue in the UK as well. Media companies shouldn't item cables and cable companies shouldn't be media companies.

Note well, BT and Virgin.

As for:

"would bar anyone offering broadband services within the state from throttling traffic, offering paid prioritization, or blocking lawful content. The bill also requires ISPs to post their policies on traffic management within their networks online for all to see"

Is why America is so important, particularly to the internet.

Re: Bigots

Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

"They argue it might stop migrants seeking medical help" is missing a crucial word. ILLEGAL.

It's a national health service, not INTERNATIONAL. For those who pay into it.

The NHS urgently need to reign itself in or collapse in the face of infinite demand.

Got a problem, shouldn't be here? return home and seek help.

Your country won't help? go into politics or lobby, at home.
