    May now being accused  by Conservative supporters of deliberately running down the clock so that she can offer a binary choice to MPs – Her Deal, or No Brexit.

    While we impatiently await this farce, you may like this NSFW lobby in support of No Brexit.

  • If you talk betrayal, I think the Conservative Party have completely betrayed their ‘Broad Church’ principles and shifted to the Fascist right. I used to vote Conservative but never again.

    Once upon a time I also voted for New Labour as I thought that they represented the bulk of opinions – unfortunately venal TBLiar betrayed that trust and sold…[Read more]

    Please Bob do not call her a Muslim. She is not representative of that faith – she has become a radical Salafist.

    Governments of the EU are wise in always using that term to discriminate that group from Muslims in general. Our Government pussy-foots around and stirs up trouble for all by not using this accurate description. Our Government does…[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.

    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]

  • 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.

  • 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.

    As a matter of fact, the law was changed in 1981 to allow the stripping of British citizenship from dual/multi nationals. Whether or not she has Bangladeshi citizenship and/or Dutch (through her marriage) I do not know but that is a matter for the Courts.

    If Begum had offered to implicate all those who convinced a young 15 year-old to betray her country, and if she had shown some contrition it is probable her reception would have been very different.

    I think Sajid Javid now deserves some praise for his courage. As an affirmed apostate he already has already committed an unforgivable sin in some…[Read more]

    Business Investment trending down – this is an expression of confidence. FDI directly reflects cheap Sterling, the figures do not look so good in USD. Many of the recent quarterly trends have been on the negative side.

    Confidence currently is very low, and money is tight so it is relatively easy to strike bargains at the moment. (I just got a 20%…[Read more]

    We have not actually left so I agree that anything that is happening in the run-up to Brexit is inconsequential. I would however take exception to your glowing  portrayal of our economic performance as that certainly is not the whole story: ONS February Report

    In  an age of extreme uncertainty, UK Businesses will postpone any decisions they do n…[Read more]

  • Do speak with your Councillor, I know that East Sussex has one of the worst budget problems but your Councillor may know where you can go for self-help grants and if (say) The Lions have any sort of tradespeople arrangements as some give Charity in kind rather than cash.

    Good luck!

    No – anything is better than a Hard Brexit, or are you in the idiotic ‘Brexit means Brexit’ camp?

    Actually Swindon is supposedly the sweet-spot manufacturing location as it has the best logistics links with the rest of the UK and export locations. So it could well be a test-case area.

  • Check out if some of the property is rented out to the Council for emergency/social housing. If so then a friendly chat with your local ward councillor may be helpful.

    The multiplier (at least five times) typically comprehends things like support trades and industries in the immediate area. I do not know what national multiplier applies.

    To be fair, Honda had to close the Civic line as there is a huge trend towards Hybrid/Plug cars and the Civic and most of the Honda line just does not cut it anymore. (ditto…[Read more]

  • The headline for the Economist this week is ‘The Rise of Millenial Socialism’, so I guess it depends which votes you are trying to garner.

    People over 50 are generally set in their political ways, and tend to become more right-wing with age so are not a fertile ground for the Labour Party. The young on the other hand have always questioned…[Read more]

    If you had properly read the context of my remark, instead of trying to spin-it to support some flimsy Brexit argument, then you would have confined your remarks to MNC capital investment decisions. Marketing decisions are quite something else as marketing manpower and capital resources are negligible on the scale of such things.

    If you listened to the Honda CEO’s interview I will agree he did not blame Brexit, HOWEVER what he did say is market size is what drove their specific investment decision.  In other words the UK on its own is going to be too small to bother with for many international investments. Again this points to Corbyn’s Trade Bloc as the most sensible way…[Read more]

    Honda make THEIR statement at 8am today then we will know what made them decide to close Swindon and impact ~20000 people. (There is a five times multiplier in the impact on jobs in the UK).
