Chinese developers protested insanely long work hours. Now the nation's courts agree

gandalfcn Silver badge

A mix of capitalism and socialism works. The problem us getting the balance right and that is what the PRC is doing and why it is successful. Similarly with the EU and Scandinavia.

The USA doesn't stand a chance as it is still trying to pretend any and all social policies are evil.

Indeed. Hosever, you should read Agenda 21, UNCED/CSD and subsequent documents. All described as plans by the Marxist, Masonic, Zionist, globalist elite illuminati to hide the truth by right wing godbotherers, i.e. self described woke people with a cancel culture.

Isn't it wonderful to see the rabid Apple haters out in force.

UK promises big data law shake-up... while also keeping the EU happy, of course. What could go wrong?

So do the USA's and UK's don't they.

Re: Performative Divergence

"The Daily Express has removed 70 articles promoting promised Brexit benefits from its website" gets 3 downvotes. They really are desperate, but that's the woke cancel culture for you.

Re: A BASE jumping error

"Brexit has been done". That is what they want you to believe but the reality is that we are still pretty much part of the EU, as this and all the other screw-uos prove.

Re: Seems to be a recurring theme here ...

"Shouldn't UK gov really have thought about this and sorted it out before leaving the EU?" Of course, along with everything else. But let's face it we haven't really left, have we it was just "Get Brexit Done" to foo the gullible. The likes of the ERG et al are fully aware of this but they know they can't say anything otherwise the house of cards will come crashing down.

Re: Seems to be a recurring theme here ...

Maybe you should up your English if you want to be considered a thinker. And yes, those who voted Remain did think. Also, they were the ones that understood what leaving the EU means, and that is conclusively proven by this action by UKGov and the Brexiteer commenters here.

Re: Seems to be a recurring theme here ...

"Well that goes for both sides." What's the current score?

gandalfcn Silver badge

Re: Seems to be a recurring theme here ...

"Who makes the laws?" The UK makes its own laws, as does the EU. But as we have known all along our laws must align with the EU's in areas of interest to the EU, and that applies to all 3rd Parties, contrary to the iies still spouted by Brexiteers.

Re: Seems to be a recurring theme here ...

"the EU commission has got to use every bureaucratic leave available to it, to be a right pain in the ass." In this part of the world we say "arse", we are not Septics or Septic lap dogs. Also, we are not applying to rejoin "Luango" it is the Lugano Convention.

"up until we left the EU and nothings substantively changed".So what? We left. Then we started changing things so stop lying. Pray tell, why is the UK gov. proposing changes to GDPR, as in "The UK has named a new Information Commissioner and announced a bullish approach to reforming data laws post-Brexit."

when we left the EU we became a 3rd Party, a fact Brexiteers still refuse to accept. Why? Because it proves their dishonesty and perfidy.

Re: Charade

The whole thing has been wishful thinking because they don't learn from history. For a start the 3 Anglo-Ahghan Wars were totally ignored.

Re: Charade

Good analysis. "a downvote which is richly deserved" As opposed to yours which most definitely wasn't. sore loser springs to mind.

The UK is on its own. The USA doesn't give a gnat's and the Brexiteers cut us off from the EU.

Re: Danger of private equity takeovers

"Paul Myners, the former City minister, has cast doubt on the value of promises made by companies seeking to secure takeovers. “These things are not enforceable, they mean nothing and they’re normally time-limited,” he said."

Re: Sovereignty

To Brexiteers being controlled by the USA is being independent.

"There are PLENTY of things we can and do do " Really? So why is it such a major problem? A problem that seems not to be going away.

Re: Apple Customers.

The only fascists in the USA are the GOP and their supporters and there are rather a lot of them here bashing Apple. .

Re: What if say Ford or Toyota...

Your paranoia is palpable.

gandalfcn Silver badge

It may be, but then the problem would lie with the elected government doing the oressuring, wouldn't it and not with Apple.

gandalfcn Silver badge

No. It is an option.

gandalfcn Silver badge

That you were downvoted says rather a lot about the lack of morals of the downvoters.

"Then those parents will be prosecuted under existing laws". Really? Do you honestly believe that?

Interestingly, M$ has been doing this for years yet not a tweet from the paranoid Apple haters.

Re: Apple has learned a lot from China

Indeed, but the GOP and its corporate and religious masters are seriously authoritarian nowadays.

gandalfcn Silver badge

Re: Apple has learned a lot from China

Erm, seems you don't know much about democracy. Also, wasn't Trump the one who was big buddies with Putin, Xi and Kim?

Presumably you conflate public good and safety and authoritarianism. You need to read your Constitution, as do Trump and the majority of his supporters.

gandalfcn Silver badge

So the situation is. Do nothing about the problem of child sexual abuse because whatever you do will be wrong.

This sounds just like the 180 year fiasco in Afghanistan.

"individuals should be answerable in a court of law". But politicians are not individuals in the eyes of the law. Ask Tony Blair.

Re: TTIP or bust

Quite. There were a lot of similar reasons people like Boris and the ERG backed Leave. and they thay had nothing whatsoever to do with sovereignty etc., just the opposite.

Re: Sumption is wrong

"more like Qanon". And all Trump/GUO. Very similar, none of them actually know anything about the documents they cite other than lying Kevin McCarthy.

gandalfcn Silver badge

Re: Sumption is wrong

If you cast your mind back it was your Messiah Farage who said if the vote was close it should not be accepted. A fact all Brexiteers run away from because it totally destroys their lies.

gandalfcn Silver badge

Re: Sumption is wrong

Indeed. But Brexiteers tell us they know everything.

gandalfcn Silver badge

Re: Sumption is wrong

"Scot's are sovereign" Correct. but the servile Little e\nglsanders and Gammon diverse don't understand freedom and self determination, they prefer to be told what to do by their "betters" aka Tory politicians and the aristocracy.

Re: Latin has no definitive article

Ouch!

It's like the Trump terrorists citing the Constitution. They don't have a clue, just like their Dictator.

Re: Self sustaining

"I am quietly fascinated by weapons testing," Really? when the mney could be spent on things like education, health etc?

gandalfcn Silver badge

"a key aim of the NIF is researching the design and maintenance of thermonuclear weapons." That pretty well sums up the USA doesn't it. Bombs rather than cheap electricity.

Watchdog 'disappointed' it took NHS England over a year to release details of access to Palantir COVID-19 data store

Giving Palantir control of health data is like giving Trump's GOP control of voting rights and racial and sexual discrimination laws.

Re: Watchdog 'disappointed'

" a foreign company". The Tories don't consider the USA to be foreign, they consider it to be more of a Master/Servant relationship.

"China also led the way in offensive intrusions into computer systems in industry and commerce all over the planet." Really? Haven't you heard of a country called the USA?
