  1. Manchester Arena Explosion

    Reports of an arrest by armed police on twitter.
  2. Manchester Arena Explosion

    That picture is from an army bomb exercise and not from tonight's incident apparently.
  3. Manchester Arena Explosion

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-40007886 This doesn't sound good. Confirmed fatalities.
  4. Cyber warfare

    It was a pretty good decision for microsoft. The NHS would have been better spending its budget on lobbyists!
  5. General Election 2017

    You're quite right, but I think in context it's worth noting that our subjective personal opinions on politicians are rarely without influence from external sources.
  6. Academy General Topic

    Kelsey Mooney is the former small heath players son? Echoing others, thanks for the updates all season long SGC, very much appreciated.
  7. General Election 2017

    I think I can hear the advertising industry laughing.
  8. U.S. Politics

    But all the offices for miles around the White House where all the people who make decisions and pay the money for those decision to be carried out are full as a fat girls sock. Trump is the culmination of the removal of Democracy as an obstacle to corporate power - an organised Trump administration would by definition be a failure - American is being Governed by Ron Swanson.
  9. U.S. Politics

    The country has leadership - Trumps job is making sure that the population don't notice it.
  10. Cyber warfare

    I'm sure this will be down to the inefficiency of the NHS and that someone like Cisco systems will be able to step in and save us (at a reasonable market rate of course).
  11. Cyber warfare

    So from what I can gather, the attack that hit the NHS was an NSA written piece that they'd not managed to completely keep in house. They'd warned Microsoft who had issued a patch (using information supplied by the NSA) but because Microsoft doesn't support XP anymore and the NHS can't afford to upgrade, the NHS hadn't picked up on it because it wasn't an automatic update. A strange mix of state action, corporate reaction and political incompetence - it's a wonderful world. There was a documentary on the BBC iplayer not too long ago about the Iranian nuclear centrifuge thing that AWOL mentioned earlier - and the things they were talking about in that were terrifying. Right now, there's a man in Maryland with a bobble head Stormtrooper on his desk who could turn off your electricity, turn off your water supply, stop you withdrawing cash, prevent planes taking off, trains running, black out your phone and your internet connection, stop your car starting and stop your streetlights working - all at the push of a button. We're talking about the ability to "switch off" a nation in an hour - it'd be carnage, riots, looting, lawlessness, chaos. All of this is possible today and the possibility's are frightening.

  13. 2017 European general elections

    Yeah, fair enough. You're right on that. I'm just a bit annoyed about France lurching to the right and claiming some sort of social victory.
  14. 2017 European general elections

    France has just elected the most neoliberal candidate in its history - a man who has pledged to remove whole swathes of French labour protection, to reduce corporate taxes, to sell off national assets, to privatise and they've done it by offering the French a choice between two plates of utter crap. No happy ending was available - we may have been better off with the fascist.
  15. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Brighton

    Well these are reasons that are more difficult to argue with.
