"these sanctions will have no effect on our ability to match the advanced technology nodes of US companies such as Intel"
Is this because they've already stolen this information through state hacking?

"because he wanted revenge against the UK in general after having his complaints about police mistreatment ignored by everyone he approached."
Jeez, we're now radicalising our own people to hate the country and help others destroy it. The police really do need to answer to MPs about how less and less crimes are getting investigated. The kids are already carrying weapons to school.
I know he's a hothead, he admits as much in regards to Twitter, but if your idea of "ruining" the country is pulling troops out of the Middle East and getting them to sign historic peace deals, instead of starting pointless oil wars, then i'm not sure what will actually please you.
Edit: Oh, it's probably because it's popular to dislike him right?
It would require: Speedometers fitted on bikes, batteries to power such things, number plates and licences for enforcement, Government database, like the DVLA, but for bikes, to store such details. Non-starter from the beginning since these requirements have already forced all the cyclists off the road and into cars.
""Lets hope the police prosecute every single car that passes a red light"
And every single bicycle that blows through a stop sign or red light?
Agreed. Believe it or not but not all cyclists run red lights. Not all cars do either.
"As I pass in front of the local schools there is a 25 MPH speed limit when children are about. I slow down to 25 ... and I'm routinely overtaken by bicyclists."
This may surprise you, but there's no speed limit for bicycles in law. Try going even 15mph up a hill and you'll see why. Have you also considered that some of those cycling past you could be going to that school?
It's the only way they'll learn...Unfortunately some might get killed, so that's regrettable.
I would be interested to see what happens when we have a high profile car collision with one of these, since they're illegal on the roads. Where does that leave the injured party legally speaking?
A) Helmets are compulsory
B) Insurance is compulsory
C) Registration is compulsory.
D) Better enforcement of existing laws.
A) Helmet laws decrease the amount of cyclists in every region that adopts a mandatory helmet position - so the result is more cars on the road. They also don't have any solid evidence they do anything to protect in crashes, except minor cuts and scrapes, so again, it's a pointless requirement.
B) A lot of cyclists do have insurance already, since home insurance actually covers them, then there's coverage thrown in by a lot of companies when you already cover your car with them. Still, this is another fallacious argument from you since cyclists aren't going to cause much damage in a crash, whereas a car...
C) Registration...As what? With who? Do children on trikes need to be on this expensive database the Government will need to create? This idea has been flatly rejected by the Government before since it has no public benefit, and the cost would be large. It would require licencing and number plates on bikes to enforce, would massively decrease the amount of bikes on the road, and would indiscriminately lead to kids getting criminal records for riding their bike. No country does this, because frankly, it's stupid.
D) Better enforcement of existing laws...No one would object to that. Lets hope the police prosecute every single car that passes a red light, since that's where i expect you're going. Speeding too, since this is a massive killer by car drivers.
Cyclists kill less than 2 people a year on the road, so get some perspective. Cars kill hundreds...
More people end up in hospital because of cars, especially the racer types that do their fast n furious stuff. I'm so tired of all these anti-scooter people. You were probably against mobile phones too when they came out.
Fixed it for you!
I've seen a few of these annoying things too, and again, always on the pavement (I'm aware they're illegal on the roads here, but they're also illegal on the pavement).
I won't jump on the usual bandwagon of the Daily Mail and Express, etc, since i'm a cyclist, and just existing sends a minority of motorists into a murderous rage. It's gotten so bad in the last 3 months i've invested in one of those bike cameras and forwarded almost 10 incidents to West Mids Police...They are yet to do anything...And so with zero enforcement this will continue to get worse, and these dangerous scooters will continue to proliferate.
Well, the interesting thing there is that Trump isn't a Republican. He's a disaffected Democrat supporter/donor. It's one of the things that's been so strange about the Republican party embracing him and endorsing him. He bills himself as a businessman, not a politician, and the people clearly like that.
Even here in the UK, the opinion of the public towards politicians is that "they're all corrupt". How do you change that? Elect a reality tv star/businessman apparently.
The next 2 weeks will be interesting to watch as it all heats up.
I'm using Windows 8.1 on my main machine and Edge installed itself there too, without my permission. This was about 2 months back.
As stated above, there is no option to decline the terms of service without using task manager to kill the process, which immediately forces it to uninstall itself without user imput.
I've started to hear the phrase "irredeemably racist" to describe white people, with some now claiming we have to be taught how not to be racist. Reecently a city in the US even sent all it's politicians to a bootcamp to teach them how to "renounce their whiteness".
What fresh racism is this when an entire group is treated as inferior by people based on skin colour, and that's somehow not racist? Madness.
It's strange that some
people lefties see it acceptable to use the term "gammon" as an insult, and a way to discredit what people say, merely by insulting their skin colour. Especially since it's blatantly racist. If "Uncle Tom" and "Coconut" are racist, then stop calling middle aged white people Gammon.
"They are also trying to redefine "racist"/"racism"/"prejudice" so that minorities are somehow unable, by definition, to be "racists" or "prejudiced"."
Yeah, that one has been going on for a while. Racism now includes a "power" element, so only white people can be racist, even when the most powerful man in the world was previously a black man... MLK must be spinning in his grave at the modern black person, fighting for segregation and special privileges.
