  • Commented on Default Option
    ...nd subsidies for certain labour-intensive/caring jobs -- including teaching .... Err ... Can I put caveats around that? Far too many so-called "teachers" still espouse the utterly hopless & discredited "mixed-ability" model. And, at least 90% of "primary" teachers, so-called,...
  • Commented on Default Option
    And, like all so-called "econimc thought" ... errr ... wrong....
  • Commented on Default Option
    We DO NOT want a replay of "The Colonels" (Who were CIA-backed) thank you very much. Or were you being ironic?...
  • Commented on Default Option
    that is familiar, in watered-down form, to anyone living in the UK outside of London and the south-east AND there as well - do not believe what you read in the papers! As long as "socialism 2" isn't the pathetic,...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    I'c not heard of the Metcalf attack - had anybody else outside the USA? Wierd - no bombs, no penetration of the sub-station perimeter, reliance on the 7.62 (= ".3 caliber" ? ) rounds to penetrate the oil-filled transformer casings...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Most first world grids are so absurdly vulnerable that if there was an actual rather than an imagined threat from terrorists you'd have no electricity to be reading this with right now Cobblers There is a real threat from terrorists,...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    ONCE you have sensible "static" (no pun intended) high-capacity forms of electrical power storage. Not in sight yet, is it?...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    significantly less than the green Germans Sorry, I nearly spilt my morning tea into the keyboard when I read that. Seriously - how much German electricity production is from coal & "brown" coal at that? Hideously polluting & spreads more...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    From the schedule: "Panel: Angels, Demons, and Saints" Err ... remember that at least 95% (better 99%) of all christian "saints" are/were arrogant, overweening, superior murderous lying bastards of the first water, & how you distinguish them from the popular...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Horribly true - adided by EU coporate corruption of course..... I didn't mention PV, because I assume that was "taken as read". We just need better elctrical storage capacity & technology....
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Yup - I think we had "crossed wires" there. On the NHS - I uinderstand that "They've had a debate" & also that the NHS is actually cheaper may have started to penetrate, too .... [ In spite of the...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Which goes to show (as if we didn't know already) how totallu effing insane the guvmint's "policy" on drugs is. Which reminds me, in a perfect mirror-image the (English) "green" party have just published a manifesto-thing, in which the ONLY...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    So, accroding to you, it's reactionary & almost-but-not-quite fascist to want the following got rid of: Corrupt business decisions taken by corporates in Brussels overe-ruling local decisions here? Or the "race to the bottom" in wages & employment cobnditons squashed,...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    The trouble with far too many comprehensives is that they resoutely refused to have internal setting &/or streaming, with full "mixed-abilty" classes. A total disaster. Although I went to a very good "Grammar" there is nothing at all wrong with...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Pitching in & fixing it would be wonderful - I agree. Unfortunately - NOT A CHANCE The corrupt corprate-industial tax-dodgers at the heart of the EU ( Junker is a classic example) will not permit it. Much too nice agravy-train....
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Afterthought: A persistent low-wage economy returns low taxes, which means no state funding, which paralyses thosse "in charge", so it is NOT a good idea .... & I think even "they "know this - I think your hypothesis fails on...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    And Charlie also ... But this business with food banks etc started with Blair & Brown, didn't it? I'd agree that Camoron st al are out of touch ... but I'm desperately trying to convince my ( female, Labour, registered...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    You touched a sore point here: we have millions of people dependent on food banks in the UK, And, though I disagree that it is deliberate policy, because no-one, not the ruling elite, no-one at all benefits. How the hell...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    To which I may add No possibilty of getting out of ( at least some of ) the utterly insane regulations on use & similar. HINT: I'm breaking at least one EU directive/regulation, every minute of the day....
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    What about people like me who don't give a flying fuck about "class" - because I know that some of my ancestors were pemniless refugees & others were as high as it is possible to go, without actually being royal?...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Don't know about the others, but wage-slavery is curiously at odds with UKIP's avowed public policy. Since Empire Windrush docked, cheap, imported labour has been & is till being used by big corporate business to keep wage-rates down & also,...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Which is why he, & all the other politicians, even the Milibean ( who is an atheist!) publicly grovel to & "respect" all & any religion, which makes me want to vomit....
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Was that supposed to be irony, or were you being rude, or were you defending $LIBERAL_ARTS ???? Seriously, this morning on Radio4 Camoron's proposal was being given a thorough rubbishing. WHich leaves a combination/slelction of: !: He shot his mouth...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Almost Here's the corrected version: First you have to understand that UK government and the tories above all whatever political party is in power, are very paternalistic. The 'people' are to be kept in the dark unless absolutely necessary (they...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Please don't! "SPAD" Has a n other mening - "Signal Passed At Danger" In modern railway operation, unless you have been given specific permission it really is a no-no & gets you a disciplinary enquiry on the spot ... We...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    I always thought "Money" was first devised in pre-classical Greece - approx 750 BCE? As for medieval payment & service, it was revolutionised (in England, anyway) by Henry I whose government ran on its famous "Barrels of Silver Pennies". It...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Again, & I'm really surprised the tories have not noticed this, the other & much larger group of people who favour as strong an encryption as possible are - the banks & theor customers - people like you & me....
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    Yes, lots of us use "Internet Banking" (I do) - & Camoron's proposal is so stupid as ..... We will all have to close our remote accounts & open new ones .. OOOPS! Perhaps that's the plan, because you can...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    YET AGAIN Ignorant "arts" graduates totally fuck-up a highly technical issue, making things worse. The thing that alrms me is that Camoron got this far, before anyone told him it was a REALLY BAD IDEA. Not that the pathetic Milibean...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    As the other previous poster pointed out ... A manned, expensive, fuel-heavy aircraft can fire its weapons or go home, or the pilot thiks he can see something & fires & oops. A drone can stooge around until the pick-up...
