    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Strummer‘s tip-of-the-day:

    For those faced with completing your HMRC Tax Return in the U.K. before the end of January, just send them a loaf of stale bread, two bananas, a cucumber, a tin of beans, two processed cheese slices and three carrots, and tell them it’s three grand.

    Sorted.

    might try that

    I did mine at the beginning of January, I normally just go into the HMRC website and do it online on their website, usually pretty straightforward.

    This time I tried to do the same only to find that I am no longer allowed to use the online service but I have to use third party software. I find one but as you may expect it’s not free. The whole process was way way more complicated than it has ever been before and at the end it just uploads everything into the form that I am not allowed to use.

    It wouldn’t surprise me...

    It was infuriating because it added complexity and cost just to get the same result.

    Do you remember the good old days, when responsibility and a sense of duty was supposedly a right-wing thing, and being an irresponsible agitator a left-wing thing?

    Left is the new conservatism; those right wing hippies are a threat to the status quo.

    I was surprised that the PNC database has no backup/recovery in place.

    The Wikipedia suggests "The mainframe server is located at the Hendon Data Centre with back-up servers located around the UK."

    EXACT SAME BENEFITS

    The Coronavirus test and trace service was run on Excel 95. Not sure what you were expecting with the PNC.

    I assume that because this was done during 'data expunging' that it was part of a process to removed data that had outlived it's retention period, so was targeted at data that had to be removed from back-ups as well, for data retention compliance reasons. However, to have no roll-back for errors, is...well, just what I'd expect on Patel's watch.

    More info on the Police National Computer records cock-up:

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...e_iOSApp_Other

    „A coding error...“

    Speaking with my „used-to-design-high-availability-database-platforms-for-a-living“ hat on, somebody should be getting sacked for this.

    Not only have they seemingly run a massive records-deleting query against their production database, it seems to prove their backup strategy was not optimal either.

    Evolve Politics definitely is.

    This failure of the mainstream media to cater for their audience has resulted in a massive rise in popularity for new left media outlets such as The Canary, Novara Media, The Skwawkbox, and, of course, ourselves, Evolve Politics.

    Default A week in politics

    Mein Kampf is the second best thing to come out of a Prison stint after Johnny Cash at San Quentin.

    Default A week in politics

    Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, is tweeting that the true figure of records „accidentally“ deleted from the Police Computer is 400,000!

    So, apart from cutting the country off from not only its largest market and also other parts of the Union, the government has also managed to remove the records of 400,000 absolute rotters on top.

    Good going.

    Still, as Jacob Rees-Mogg tells us, Britain „has its fish back, and they’ll be better and happier fish as a result“.

    Have you ever met a happy fish? The ones I meet are usually covered in batter, and served with chips.

    I do wonder if the logic of insisting that fish are British once they enter U.K. waters, will also be applied to incoming immigrants?

    Meanwhile on the subject of Parler, it seems analysis of the 70TB of data captured from the site before it was kicked off the internet shows an number of interesting members:

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...e_iOSApp_Other

    Some it seems we’re very enthusiastic contributors, others, less so.

    One of the stupidest things is when a politician accuses another politician of engaging in politics.

    Want to know if YOUR Member of Parliament has been working for the greater good, or is just a corrupt, line-toeing shitbag?

    I saw this doing the rounds on social media and it seems a little bit over the top for something which can be basically be summed up as “if your MP is Tory, they’re a prick; if they’re Labour, then they’re not”
