"Now they are starting to censor books."

Since when has blocking some pirate sites been the same as censoring the content? Hysterical, much?

"That should give you a pretty good picture where this is going.."

Its simply treating the internet like any other media - ie subject to the law. If you don't like the law vote for someone who'll change it. In the meantime stop whining like some tin foil hat hippy whos just stepped out of 1975.

Go and write a textbook yourself if you think its so unfair? Oh, whats that? You can't? Well then stop whining about people who can making some money out of their efforts. Or it you don't believe effort should be rewarded then I presume you'll be working for free for the rest of your life?

Sorry, but who comes up with this shit? Apart from not knowing the start location and orientation of the phone, electric trains are all pretty similar these days and besides which how will they take account of non station stops at reds, bad riding suspension on certain trains, fast/slow drivers etc etc?

What a crock of ....

Apart from that the accelerometers on your average consumer device arn't even that accurate. After a few minutes it'll be hopelessly lost.

"Undue priviledges"?

Perhaps you should read up on the reasons for the rebate instead whining about it.

Anyway, the EU seems perfectly happy to subsidise basket case economies like greece , italy and spain not to mention the waste of space eastern european countries that contribute fuck all apart from their citizens who just move to the west and undercut the local wage rates, so whats the problem?

The EU as a political entity is a joke based upon nothing but a fear of a previous generation about another european war. Sadly a lot of people in the EU are so blinded by the propaganda they just don't see it.

"The economy of the UK isn't that strong."

Compared to what? We've got the 2nd largest european economy after germany (we overtook france recently) and one of the highest employment rates in europe, so I'd be interested to hear what your definition of "strong" is.

The EU is nothing but a bunch of 2nd & 3rd rate countries sucking off the teet of germany and in the end when germany finally can't afford it any more its all going to end in tears. The sooner we (the UK) get out of this farcical club run by unelected useless politicians who weren't good enough to get a job in their own governments the better.

Air is water with holes in it.
