Survey Says To UK — Repeal Laws of Thermodynamics 208

mostxlnt writes "As we noted, the new Tory UK government has launched a website asking its subjects which laws they'd most like repealed. There are proposals up for repeal of the Laws of Thermodynamics: Second, Third, and all (discussion thread on this one closed by a moderator). One comment on the Third [now apparently deleted] elucidated: 'Without the Third Law of Thermodynamics, it would be possible to build machines that would last forever and provide an endless source of cheap energy. thus solving both potential crises in energy supply as well as solving the greenhouse gas problem in one step... simples... eh?'"

No. The UKian Government has proved beyond doubt it is incapable of looking after sensitive personal data. The Government employs these private companies without any recourse for penalties, with massive rewards for the Boards, and no comeback for us proles who pay their wages. If you're interested, here's some googlewords for you: Devil's Kitchen, LPUK, Guido Fawkes. I understand that Bastard Old Holborn and many others will be taking an interesting walk on the 5th of November.
