Well, have you considered the “gravity effect” of the increasing egos and vanity of the French? I would not put it past them to think of such a devious way to get their own back on us, at long last – drainer leurs ports!

Maybe the French sneaked over the Channel and dumped barrels of sand, silt and mud in the ports, to block them up, enjoyed it so much, that they carried on.

Of course today, technology has advanced. The French can block a modern ferry port with 3 rubber ducks and a long piece of string, such that no vessel can get in, or out.

Smart meters ... very few of the UK smart meters proposed to be rolled out actually have a disconnection facility and hence cannot in truth be used to crash the generating system directly - I wonder WTF GCHQ are on about.

Since the machines essentially stream a time tagged power measurement to central servers and on to the retailer's system where billing software does its thing - the primary threat to users has to be manipulation of that stream and onward distribution of the data to bad actors.

Why do we pay civil servants? .......... you've got me there.

it's a real shitshow.


Jeanine Perro is quite the bloviating windbag - but on this I think she's spot on.

The dysfunctional bureaucrats at the FBI need a proper roasting - it's becoming entirely obvious that they have a different set of priorities to the ones they advertise. Trump could do a lot worse than putting in an external troubleshooting team with a full and unequivocal hire 'n fire mandate - but that'd be fascist .....

If you have a thoroughly dysfunctional bureaucracy that is *not delivering* on its primary tasking - it self evidently is going to fail if you ask it to reform itself. Few politicians have the guts to take on the bureaucrats.

In the UK , civil servants have a fondness for (expensive) re-branding the same old shit and acting surprised when gosh! .... they've screwed up again! happens. Like goldfish swimming around a bowl being surprised that they see a light house every time they turn around.

One thing that the Democrats and nasty fools like Jimmy Kimmel (in clip 3 - what a cnut) constantly avoid is that in too many cases the culpably lax enforcement of the gun laws that are already in place happens under notionally Democrat local administrations and compounded by the FBI's people failing to do their jobs.

Smart meters vulnerable - who could have predicted that? Oh I know, we did. Even the 'gutter press' knew. Why do we pay civil servants? Politicians could just post 'what are the pros and cons of this idea' on the net and get better results.

Out of interest, Entropic man, why would the “gravity effect” of Antarctica stop any sign of sea level rise at one of Australia’s oldest tidal gauges? (And measurement recordings since its installation do show that the rise there really is tiny – at about 2½ inches per century.) As the effect was there when the fort was built, why would it inhibit sea-level rise, there? Unless, of course, the mass of Antarctica is increasing at such a rate that the “gravity effect” increases just enough to prevent sea-level rise being obvious… And you are not suspicious of the unusually high number of very odd coincidences that are required for your precious theory to be maintained? But, that would then raise the question: how can the mass of Antarctica be increasing? – which takes us onto your claim of decreasing ice, and it being debunked by this odd coincidence… unless we can find another odd coincidence, of course.

Entropic man: haha! I knew you would just dismiss the links! Do you not wonder why few bother supplying links for you? Why do you think I told you not to read, but look at the photos? I am surprised, though, that you went for something as obtuse as discoloration of the stones; why did you not question what the state of the tide was in each photo? Mind you, the range is only about a metre, so…

Of course, there is the very obvious disparity of quality, but, if you look more carefully at the top-most, 1885, photo, you will see that the wall to the tower does have a dark band at about the same level as in the lowest, latest photo. So… fail. Again.

Now, I wonder why you have not said anything about the middle link? Could it be that, disparaging though it is to those of your ilk, it is absolutely stuffed with evidence?

GC: obviously, Harlech Castle is close enough to Greenland for the gravity effect… and the Cinque Ports? Well, have you considered the “gravity effect” of the increasing egos and vanity of the French? I would not put it past them to think of such a devious way to get their own back on us, at long last – drainer leurs ports!

Jeanine Perro (@judgejeanine) "on one"

I hope she starts a righteous fire

There comes a time when bureaucrats have to be held to account - sweet reasonableness and understanding have to be put on the shelf as they are of no use.

Guy Verhofstadt must be a classic 'thicko'to even contemplate making such a statement - when it is so clear that the union is coming apart at the seams.

Hmm, has Verhofstadt asked the Italians? A nation seething with anger

I see that the mighty orator Lord "manypensions" Kinnock has awoken - might he be about to reprise his "Liverpool" speech?

Ranks alongside him falling into sea. It's a classic:
...and you end in the grotesque chaos of a Labour council -- a Labour council -- hiring taxis to scuttle round a city handing out redundancy notices to its own workers
