    ↑ What Dwynne said. Then round up the ones up who they know have been there and returned back here and send them back and strip them of citizenship.

  • @VFM I see Derek Hatton lasted 2 days.

    Steven Woolfe (UKIP MEP bare knuckle fighter) has said he’d like to stand as a Conservative in Anna Soubry’s constituency. In their story, the Express states that Broxtowe is “heavily pro-Brexit” at 55% – 45%.

    Kate Hoey 78%, Graham Brady – 61% Remain, Graham Lilley 61% Remain, Theresa Villiers 59%…[Read more]

  • Give him a few years, he’ll get the hang of not answering anything in a glib fashion. The real issue is… What you’re asking me is… The (opposition) are (slag off)… Insert today’s vox pop clip and always waste time by starting by saying with how honoured you are to be asked on this program. Shout down anyone else when they’re talking.

    Fair…[Read more]

  • Hypocrisy? From politicians? Surely not!

    I think they take the Hypocratic Oath at induction.


    A good friend is the guy who bails you out of jail. Your best friend is the one in the next cell, saying “Damn, that was fun!”

    You are my best mate. If we were both on a sinking ship and had one life jacket between us, I would really miss you and think of you often.

    The Duke – ” ..Let her back, and monitor her….”

    I would think that our hard pressed police / security services are fully stretched already with the ones we know / suspect are sympathisers, let alone allow back a person who has shown total disregard for her country of birth and who has shown no remorse whatsoever about the events she witnessed…[Read more]

  • You have to feel sorry for the guy. You are correct tho, a few years ago this would be a sketch in the ‘it’d not the 9 o’clock news show’ or whatever it was called.

  • Just to calm myself down re all the hypocrisy I have reminded myself of the typical flight path of all break away new parties (?) in the HoC.   It goes like this.

  • I’ve used Last pass fro ten plus years. Probably closer to 15. As I recall when android launched I had to pony up to the $1pm plan to streamline mobile use via the dolphin HD last pass plug in. The days before a last pass app, or even chrome.

    Anyhow, I tell anyone that doesn’t want to use a manager, a notepad is a must, and is probably far safer…[Read more]

  • For some light relief from this heavy thread, I thought I’d post this –

    Jamie Driscoll, Labour’s Momentum backed candidate for North of Tyne Mayor personifies the problem Labour has in heavily Leave voting areas.   You can almost hear the backchatter inside his head as he is interviewed by ITV’s Joe Pike – ‘I must not answer one way or the oth…[Read more]

    One other possible scorpion in the heap is that some countries used to try to hijack babies born on their soil so that a ‘fun’ letter could turn up many years later giving details of a reporting point to use for their armed forces. I doubt that this birth will be recorded in any Syrian lists so that is one doubtful risk that may well lie down and…[Read more]

  • I’m not sure which ‘moderates’ you are talking about.   Well perhaps the Labour TIG could be described as such but certainly not the Three Ugly Tory Sisters.    By any correct definition they are the ones that are Rebels.   All stood on a manifesto that was explicit that we would leave the CU & SM and all have rebelled against that upon whi…[Read more]

  • Boris replied to the topic Syria in the forum Other Politics 20 hours, 34 minutes ago

    Just heard on the news that she is so full of her own self-importance that she thought SJ should contact her personally about his decision.  What planet is she on ?

    She has spent some years passively supporting one of the most brutal and genocidal regimes in recent history, and appears quite unrepentant.
    Morally speaking, she has lost any claim…[Read more]

  • Generally I think a manager of some form (even if just a notebook) is essential to ensure no re-use of passwords and ensuring sufficient complexity of 14 chars+.

    I’m personally doubtful of cloud-based managers but I recognise others find them of value. The one area of failing for the study was the omission of Android/Linux based processors.

  • Ed P replied to the topic Syria in the forum Other Politics 20 hours, 58 minutes ago

    Richard the ‘legality’ of her marriage is presently moot, but I believe that the Dutch gave full common law rights to partners while our Bishops were still arguing the toss. As I understand it her Dutch husband just needs to affirm the situation through a written declaration both for Begum and his child. However, none of this can be applied before…[Read more]

  • Yes I read reviews of the paper but I did wonder how valuable it would be to the ordinary PC or other device user? The sum total appeared to be that most, perhaps not all exploitation attacks would require physical access of some kind, so it would be wise to reboot after each use to minimise the risks, or is that an over simplification?.

    I have…[Read more]

  • I found the RAW image thumbnail useful, the use of other programs to process RAW is a Preferences choice but I guess some may find that difficult.

  • Richard replied to the topic Syria in the forum Other Politics 21 hours, 12 minutes ago

    Ed, is her ‘marriage’ even recognised or registered anywhere?

    This whole subject is a legal minefield of possible legal debates, which no doubt tax payers will be expected to pay

  • An interesting article which says that all managers are secure when not in use, but Windows APIs reduce their security once they have been opened, IF the attacker can gain access to the device.


  • I have used Win 10 for a long time and found it very stable with no desires to fall over, though to be honest, most of my previous versions were like that. I have managed to overcome most of the issues of external devices becoming lost or discarded by replacing programs or bypassing any pointless road blocks.

    You are right that is quite a list,…[Read more]
