Drugs, vodka, Volvo: The Scandinavian answer to Britain's future new border

ITnoob

So the Scandinavian system works efficiently and is cost effective. This 100% guarantees that UK gov will totally ignore it and bodge together a proprietary heap of junk for 4 times the price. Kerching!

74 countries hit by NSA-powered WannaCrypt ransomware backdoor: Emergency fixes emitted by Microsoft for WinXP+

ITnoob

According to Amber Rudd XP is not secure and the NHS needs to sort it out, although they aren't going to get extra money to do it. Meanwhile getting IT advice from Amber is like your Nan asking if you have heard of "the youtube".

Re: Who to choose?

I've been looking at our constituency result from 2015. Tories ~20,000, Labour ~ 17000, UKIP ~ 8000, Lib dem ~ 900. My wife and I have spent the best part of an hour trying to decide whether to vote tactically. Clearly LIb Dems are they way to go if you are anti-brexit but I'm not certain they could claw back ~ 12,000 votes in a constituency which has always switched between Con and Lab. So if it's tactical we have to vote Labour which would be really painful given their current shambolic showing.
