Re: up 49 per cent on first estimates.
Dont worry, Grayling hasn't got his hands on it yet...... but when he does, you can add a zero to that 49%

I agree. But one thing that will make for even more uncomfortable reading for Boeing Execs, Shareholders and fans, is that all 3 possible warning systems which Boeing had designed to alert of possible malfunction of, or pilot conflict with, said MCAS system were ALL additional extras on the both the Max 8&9 aircraft. Neither of the two aircraft that have crashed had any of these systems installed**. In fact, a recent pilots report from American Airlines suggests they may be the only carrier who has selected them. How such critical alerts could be "optional extras" given the number of stripped back, bare bones carriers out there is a galling commercial decision for any company to have taken. This, more than anything I feel will be highlighted in all the reports written on the causes of these tragic events. [** Source: AvTalk Podcast No53, produced by FlightRadar24. Worth a listen].
Surprised that people (including the author) are surprised by this. The RN has been surveying the worlds oceans from its very inception! That is what all the great famous Captains spent most of their time doing on their voyages of discovery. Accurately charting the worlds oceans and sending them back to the Admiralty. With charts come power and with power, wealth and a lot of the "success" of the Empire was built on the back of skilled navigator and survey creating accurate sea chart for others to follow! The Article should really reference his long history of surveying as a RN skill.
In 1994, The Irish Times established a website called Irish-times.ie; it was the first newspaper in Ireland and one of the first 30 newspapers in the world to do so. The company acquired the domain name Ireland.com in 1997, and from 1999 to 2008, used it to publish its online edition. It was freely available at first but charges and a registration fee were introduced in 2002 for access to most of the content. A number of blogs were added in April 2007 written by Jim Carroll, Shane Hegarty, and Conor Pope. On 30 June 2008, the company relaunched Ireland.com as a separate lifestyle portal and the online edition of the newspaper was now published at irishtimes.com. It was supplied free of charge, but a subscription was charged to view its archives.
On 15 October 2012 John O'Shea, Head of Online, The Irish Times, announced that the ireland.com domain name had been sold to Tourism Ireland, and that the ireland.com email service would end on 7 November 2012. The domain name was sold for €495,000. The ending of the email service affected about 15,000 subscribers.
The newspaper announced on 17 February 2015 the reintroduction of a paywall for its website, irishtimes.com, beginning on 23 February."
No mention in the article of warrants......... back in the day, and int time honoured hollywood police dramas, The Cops were always waiting for a warrant from a Judge, so they could 'do the wire tap'. Igoring the technical fiasco, its does appear from this article, its just a "give the cops whatever they ask for' sort of legislation with no checks and balances.......?
