Thickness of the white lines (from the Scottish flag) aginst the red (from the cross of st george) tell you which way is "up" - look top left diagonal, if the upper most which line is thicker than the one below, it is hung right way up. Upside down would be where this line is thinner.

really, "anything" invllving your incarceration? No, what should be available are the court records. Not the sensationalist just-this-side-of-libel newspaper versions of truth, heavily editoriliased to give their message prominence and sell more papers. That helps noone rehabilitate - which is the purpose of the verious acts here. After a time your crime is officially forgotten (there, but not relevant - like expired points on a driving licence record) and you should be free to move on with your life.

Not at all vauge, if you read the summary of the judgement.

Like all conflicting rights, it is a balance - when does your right to privacy outweigh freedom of information.

Its asinine to pretend there are absolute rights. they dont exist - even in the US you have no right to certain speech

No, one is labelled to show that auto start / stop can be disabled - that is the "off" button you mention. The diagram is a key element you missed. Auto start stop is a feature designed to save you fuel, which it only does when it has sufficient charge to restart the engine (hence "sometimes"). this is a feature

There is no guessing, this is clearly written in the manual, anddoenst take too much thought to understand.

(DSisclosure - I work for BMW, but not designing cars. Its just blindingly obvious what these buttons do)
