UK age-checking smut overlord won't be able to handle the pressure – critics


This whole thing is going the train wreck way that all informed observers thought it would. Hopefully, the Gov will see sense and quietly shelve it. Much like backdooring whatsapp and similar nonsensical things.

MoD: We've got a handle on contract costs. Audit Office: About that...


I’m a technical procurement expert and got approached by the MOD in 2016 to support on a project. Day rate offered was £350 per day.

The commercial client I was working for paid £650 a day.

Guess who I stayed working for. I suspect the MOD struggles with a big gap between well paid, well staffed sales teams and their own underpaid procurement and engineering staff.

Just guessing though:)

Thankfully UK gov has confirmed they will fully implement GDPR.
