Re: The next Labour Leader

Are core labour supporters enough to get labour in? Shouldn't they consider what other people want too?

Re: The next Labour Leader

A digression on polls. In case you didn't know. Three election before last there was one outlier poll that was actually accurate because it used new techniques. After that GE there was a lot of discussion on polling and a kind of forum to discuss it going forward. Aiui that body determined those new...

Wet wo...

Re: The next Labour Leader

All three candidates I believe support Corbyn's policies. Nandy was the only one to openly criticise Corbyn so she's out. Long-Bailey is obviously Corbyn mk2. She came right out of the blocks after the results came in giving Corbyn 10 out of 10 rating. Starmer is a bit too southern toff lawyer type ...

Re: I dont want a Big Mac

What I really wonder about McDonald's is how can they get away with advertising well filled burgers then supply those same burgers without most of the fillings? Isn't there laws against false advertising? Burgers look taller than they're wider even if a big mac. Then you get them and they're as flat...

Re: Amazon

About 10 years ago I had a friend who worked as a nurse. One year with overtime and extra lists she earnt in one year £30k+. Not bad for a registered nurse. She later left to earn more as a bank nurse. The last time I had contact she worked at Amazon. She was very money orientated and obsessed. She ...

Re: Google Terms of Srvice changes

Wasn't there a thing 9 years ago about UK data going to the us? IIRC the UK census data got sent over to the us for processing. I really wonder how much data is going to America that can't be found or n obtained from other sources? We're all leaking data every time we go on the internet, use our sma...

Re: Woke Rappers!

I don't listen to Rap music,what I've heard is delivered fast(too fast for me) and the content can be iffy to say the least,and generally it's aimed at a certain section of youth. That said I did hear some of the performance in question and thought,well said that man. EDIT,last night there was an a...

Re: Woke Rappers!

The more urban music styles I'd expect to be more edgy than mainstream. Rap, grime, etc. When you're mainstream guardian reader rap there's really no edge there. It just seems a change to me

Yes, the clash. Good band imho

Re: Safety Standards Post Brexit

It's nothing to do with technical standards which would directly impact on bikes and bike parts which I believe this thread started off discussing. Child exploitation is a failure of states, of politicians, policies, regulations, of ethics, morals, etc. It's something that is probably more widesprea...

Woke Rappers!

https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/02/19/daves-rap-was-just-dull-woke-groupthink/ Any views on Dave the rapper and this article? He's got a point, Dave's Brit appearance was a Guardian reader's checklist of right on topics. Not exactly like the rap of old. Or punk attitude. Or elvis' hips corruptin...

Re: Safety Standards Post Brexit

My posts weren't targeted at you just a general comment that there's prejudice in the way people from the supposedly enlightened west on countries like India. The digression to child exploitation in a discussion on standards is another way of letting it leak out whether intentional or not. Child exp...

Re: Safety Standards Post Brexit

Would this be the India where over 10 million children are used as labour? The India where there are estimated to be almost 400,000 children working as bonded labourers - something akin to slavery? Yes it would, but if you're talking of technical standards that affect quality of product made in Ind...

Re: Safety Standards Post Brexit

The Indian standards body had 20,000+ standards in place January last year. They have identified 15 key international standards and are aiui writing Indian equivalent standards. I also understand that many sectors of Indian industry with international dealings work to international standards releva...
