    IT’s unsustainable when some things never seem to change

    Matthew Postgate, chief technology and product officer at the BBC, said the broadcaster is reinventing itself for a new generation "and the technology we use is critical to that mission."

    Is that reinventing itself as an effective leading revolutionary BroadBandCaster rather than being the servile tool of all of those second rate third parties in dire straits need of a sympathetic spin machine for the advancing of their secret agendas/politically incorrect pirate missions with private investors ……. for is that not what is needed in light of that which it and IT has become … and be failing so spectacularly well to both micro and macro manage the direction of humanity with the production and presentation of myriad virtual reality plays.

    And there you are, most probably not knowing 'Nation Shall Speak Peace Unto Nation' is the BBC motto being disgraced almost daily and television and radio are your novel remote controllers providing you 24/7/365 with everything you need not think about so that you do not think about how easily you are led and brainwashed and the worlds around you are created/scripted.

    Methinks now though things need to be done considerably better than ever before, because intelligence does not contemplate to be content with a corrupt establishments and perverse status quo operating systems.

      And, if you really find it difficult to impossible to believe that such as is shared above can be true and formative, you are never going to believe either what is made possible in the tales of this Improbable report ......

      Is that akin to the casting of Perl before swine?

      And yes, it surely is a case of Words Create Command and Control and Crash Test Worlds. which we are fortunate enough to not have to have the masses knowing about to realise it with ..... well, media and IT are keys.

    I had to shadow an assessor for the Job Centre for a week. People come in, they tell their story of why they don't have work, maybe have a few bits of paper and leave. 8 out of 10 could be clearly classified as daily choices that keep them uneducated and in poverty. Over half said they were depressed because of lack of work and substance abuse. It's hard to see why they should keep getting handouts.

      Strong and stable leadership has its own hangers-on army terrified of established gravy train wrecks

      Well, one reason to ponder why such things should continue is to keep you in your employment, AC, for without them might you be destined to join them. What do you produce for sale at a profit which anyone would be pleased to purchase?

      It seems to me like you might be considered by more than just a few who be many, to be on benefits/government handouts yourself.
