Comment Re:And you think Hillary would be any different? (Score 1) 1066

If you were really tolerant, then you'd be understanding and accepting of someone who DOESN'T believe in gay people.

You're happy to accept people who think like you do, but you can't imagine it is acceptable to think otherwise.

You have the right to believe what you wish. You don't have the right to force others to believe what you wish. Feel free not to believe in gay people, but don't expect _them_ to change just because _your_ belief is in conflict with _their_ reality.

Comment Re:Parliament should approve (Score 1) 609

Your Parliament should approve for two reasons:

1. You had a referendum that was clean.

Just as a reminder of how 'clean' this whole mess was: the Leave campaign put up a fake voter registration site in the last days before the referendum and paid for Google search results to be directed to that site instead of the actual government site. Admittedly, it only stayed up for a short while, but this was after the real site crashed from volume of requests and the electoral commission ruled that registration should be extended. It was an explicit attempt to thwart the ruling of the electoral commission.

Submission + - GCHQ Planning UK-Wide DNS 'Firewall'

An anonymous reader writes: UK surveillance agency GCHQ is exploring the use of a national ‘firewall’ in its fight against cybercrime, according to the organisation’s head of cybersecurity. Alongside BT, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, GCHQ will work to filter out websites and email campaigns which are known to contain malicious content. The intelligence organisation believes that the best to way to set up such a blockade would be to build a national domain name system (DNS). In a speech delivered at the Billington Cyber Security Summit in Washington DC, director general for cyber security at GCHQ, Ciaran Martin, said: ‘We’re exploring a flagship project on scaling up DNS filtering: what better way of providing automated defences at scale than by the major private providers effectively blocking their customers from coming into contact with known malware and bad addresses?’

Comment Re:Low cost? (Score 1) 990

If the range was very slightly higher, I'd be driving a Nissan Leaf to work right now, and it would have cost me £0. I did the sums, and what I would pay in rental payments and electricity, was very slightly smaller that what I currently pay in fuel costs. However, I was only 95% confident that the range was sufficient to get me home again at night, in the winter, with the cab heater on, after a couple of years of battery wear, etc. etc.

Very, very close to being a 'free' car though. Give it a couple more years.
