Amazon eyes wander as Royal Mail strike looms

David Mullen


If amazon's delivery gets taken back to the depot and I have to go and collect it how is this mail order? Atleast when RM (or is that consigniere) take it back I can walk to the sorting office, the amazon package I have to collect tomorrow will invovlve a 30 mile drive I wouldn't otherwise make. So that becomes a purchase I won't make.

Working for the FBI

May be GBS is on a sub contract from the FBI. Didn't they get upto some sort of monitoring program of library use (that is from the film Seven but I believe the program refered to in the film was based on a real program)

I for one welcome our new efficient privacy intruding reading monitors .... oh maybe not.

Somebody shop me

I am a chemist, sitting around my outside my house are various spent 25L and 205L chemical drums including one marked 32% hydogen peroxide.

Personally I use them for growing flowers (particularly gladioli) the larger ones make cheap water butts.

No Officer I am beer drinking bacon eating Dawkensian. May in an entirely racist way thank god (who doesn't exist) that I am white.

Judge says tech-addled jurors undermine justice

David Mullen
Thumb Down

Jurors also pass their verdict on the law

The point in having a jury is that if the jury doesn't support the law, that is thinks the law is wrong, they can find the defendent not guilty even if they did do it, and the jury as the law says IS correct. The law is my servant not my master.

The point about the competence of jurors should be answered by training them. One day spent checking to see if the jurors can understand evidence draw inferences and change them and dismissing those who can't would help improve justice.

Remarks that this too expensive coming from grossly overpaid barristers are simply laughable.
