Not at all enforcable.

So of course they'll do it.

I think they'll get somewhere in the region of 160 seats at the least. Maybe even 200 depending on Events.

Labour have got to be seen as doing something in the next 5 years though, else it might well swing back again in 2029.

One thing we did was tried to hurdle all of the hedges along the street. I tried to film it once, but it was dark and trying to ride a bike or a skateboard along the pavement (so there was - in theory - less camera movement) while my friends were doing it wasn't that easy.

I've trapped my fingers in a car door because I had my hand on the roof, leaned over to close the door with my other hand and didn't move the other hand in time.

He's hardly the only MP who does that (Tim Farron and Simon Hughes, famously, over same sex marriage for two Lib Dem examples).

No one can forecast snow in the UK unless it's already snowing.

No. And forecasts of snow are barely reliable 10 hours out.

This is hardly a surprise, given that the first thing he did when released before was try to circumvent the restrictions placed on him.

Scientology-linked UK drug rehab left vulnerable people ‘traumatised’ (www.theguardian.com)

An unregulated rehab centre linked to the Church of Scientology put mentally ill people through intense psychological drills that allegedly left them “traumatised” and in “trance-like” states, an investigation by the Observer can reveal....

Then whoever was overseeing said "rehab" should be arrested. Right?

The girl got life with a minimum of 22 years (and a comment saying it would "take a lot of work" for her to be released), The boy got life with a minimum of 20.

Would be kind of hilarious if they didn't use Chicago Style.

I do think though that a lot of people are going to be quite disappointed when the next government don't actually do very much.

Which is what the app on my phone is based on already. I manage it most days easily by walking from the bus station to work and back, which is ~1 mile. And that doesn't include the time I'm actually at work, because I can't wear my smart watch actually in the office.

This is going to carry on until we get a Phil Woolas situation and some election results get overturned.

I'm pretty sure most people don't want it to...

Furthermore, what's even the point of open standards if you don't want them to be adopted.

Well, yes. There does seem to be a lot of "we want open standards but we don't want big companies to use them" among fediverse users.

The BBC followed this up with an article about similar stories, including the two different "soft toy mistaken for an escaped tiger" ones.

It does also remind me of the (in)famous "false leg mistaken for paedophile" incident.

The New York Times is suing OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement (www.theverge.com)

The New York Times is suing OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement, claiming the two companies built their AI models by “copying and using millions” of the publication’s articles and now “directly compete” with its content as a result....

Authors need to be able to make a living from writing, unless you want far less books to be written. And there is some logic in allowing them to leave some sort of rights to their family, even if it's only for like 10 years.

Its not piracy to just webscrap everything for data…

Yes it is.

FPTP isn't inherently undemocratic. It's not ideal, for any number of reasons, but it does have the advantage of a strong local link to representatives and (usually) leads to strong governments. I personally would prefer STV like Ireland has as a first choice, and as a second choice some form of MMP (like the Scottish Parliament, or New Zealand, or Germany)
