Having slashed and burnt to achieve full 'It wasn't ME' status my LA is now admitting they screwed up?
There is no office space left, few buildings, nothing much more than town hall and mayor with bling round their neck making comments so very close to 'strong and stable'.
But with a record of not complaining when developers fail to provide the contracted social housing and ensuring that the borough's youth have had all local youth clubs buildings demolished to make way for new (private) development, I expect nothing but a mirror of Brexit with the borough continually blaming everything on other people.
I had settled down to listen to Alfie Moore's 'It's a Fair Cop' and had to abandon the programme as the sound was bloody awful.
I thought, 'Oh it'll sort itself out when I boot up tomorrow ' and I find it's another cock-up.
It's not a new 'experience', Microsoft, it's (sniff, sniff) a return to the good old days of ---Upgrade, reboot while holding Rosary beads.
Many people, it seems, bought the idea that all was wonderful and the internet was full of fairy farts.
But the internet has people using it and some people do not agree with others while others find destructive trolling 'a huge laugh'.
It is NOT and never has been a wonderful safe (and boring) place.
"delighting the SpaceX fanboys with yet another successful touchdown, this time aboard the drone-ship "Of Course I Still Love You", stationed out in the Atlantic."
This is the problem, every time Musk is a twat, the naming thing is such a plus point.
And I feel that there are many at The Reg who also have this issue - being huge Banks fans.
Does he not know that as soon as the ban on China was announced, US 'Patriots' flocked to Chinese wholesalers to buy up flags?
The makers raked in a small fortune they said 'we make other flags' - keeping quiet about exports to places NOT on the banned list.
As the US tech industry kaaks itself and shakes it's head in the sheer disbelief of a 'supreme businessman' who can't even plastic-coat a turd.
we've not seen one of these for a while.
They usually end up either scrapped after many changes of firms and guaranteed payouts or so far behind that they are no longer for for purpose - and still paying out guaranteed lumps.
Ah, if only things were as smooth as Crossrail . . .
The cooker first needs to monitor the home and detect the unmistakeable signs of a pissed person.
THEN it checks the fridge to see what it contains and is most likely to be favoured by someone at the stage of 'experimentation'.
At that point it accesses its own system and compares with Michelin star type food, and shuts down as a matter of sheer decency and taste (while ordering a pizza)
"“as an entrepreneur who is involved in business, investment and civil society ventures in the UK and overseas”, stating that “he intends to raise venture funds by equity offerings.”"
As someone who is capable of understanding politician's doublespeak -- this sounds a bit 'Trotter-ish' to me. The last bit is wonderfully iffy.

It's like an email I got from BT where, apparently, I'd downloaded Fast and Furious number somethingorother.
Considering I leave my BT side open to slurpers- it's still my IP address where the slurping comes from.
I ignored the email.
But, then who needs to download F&F?
It's not as if it's not on TV all the time.
I got an email from a firm apparently given access to my records by BT.
Something about Fast and Furious four being downloaded from my IP address.
After being informed by the rest of the house that:
a, they'd got it already
b, they'd got subscriptions to site so why download
c, 'fuck off, that one's shit
I ignored the email and still haven't had the joy of informing someone that I share my IP address with anyone else with a BT login who could even be my neighbour.
