"....but I'm fairly sure I could comport myself in a more civil and beneficial manner.". I'm sure nobody doubts that!

The problem of course is that the Tories face both ways in public at least when it comes to wages. They give the spiel about the high wage, high skill economy to the faithful but killed decent training and introduced more restrictive laws on striking. The reality is that they do the employers (and donors) bidding. Pay rises have been at or below inflation since Osbourne a decade ago. This little economic downturn seems to be yet another good reason for the government to permit further squeezing of wages. Where do all those saved wages and pension contributions go? Shareholders of course with a bit to the senior management to ensure the plebs are kept to the wheel. Factor in runaway house prices also engineered by government policies and its obvious that the divide between them with and them without will soon be wider than the Amazon. And just as uncrossable. Back to the good old days you might say, if you are one of the owner classes.
ESN is the Brexit fantasy of the telecoms world. Everybody who wants it keep saying its just one more small hill away whilst almost everybody else wonders if they will live long enough to see it. And finally there are those who just keep taking the coin wherever and however they can. What an utterly British mess.
I guess they are crowing about the addition of the QR code combined with contact tracing as a "world first". Every time I hear that phrase from this government I get the distinct uneasy feeling soft soaped into swallowing yet another half or three quarter lie.
Assuming you are not rooted you could try Netguard
You can block individual programs and system programs access to the web through either wifi or mobile data or limit them whilst roaming.
it does require a little setup to get it right but it works for me. i use the pay version downloaded from Github to add a hosts file to block lots of iffy web addresses when surfing.
I get the feeling that deep down this brexit mad for it government thinks those Jonny Foreigners (not one of them went to Eaton you know!) will be as disorganized as they are. Those Dutch started training additional customs officers 3 years ago. I get the feeling Britain is going to get a nasty lesson in January.
If you happen to have run into a cop having a bad day, it will do wonders to diffuse the situation. If you have done something wrong 'man up', then 'shut up', and call a lawyer, before you say *anything*, other than, 'I think I should speak to an attorney before i talk with you.'
I expect this could work if you are white. I would be a bit more nervous if I wasn't.
The use of the" friend of a cabinet minister" is a straw man. There are very good reasons why other countries protect their valuable assets. Our usual laissez faire attitude to almost everything in business is no way to protect a national asset.
I dont know exactly what the government would say. Do you? What do other countries tell their security sensitive companies about who they can be sold to? Whatever it is, we should say it too rather than nothing at all. Or even worse, just mumble some flubbery about profit and freedom.
How does Metplod tech accuracy compare with China's implementation? I'm not saying plod tech is always bad but form long experience I know the Met like to pay over the odds for second best as many former colleagues will testify! Can anybody comment? I've walked around Oxford Circus occasionally and that square at Stratford many a time and its always very, very busy so it seems to me that they only ran their cameras at each location for an hour or so.
If I was the first person bagged on plodcam in the UK Id want to get into the Guinness Book of Records!
That one person was bagged in just a couple of camera hours with such a small database of faces means they probably loaded the mugs of know local wanteds into the system or they just got very lucky.
Forget looking for fugitives, how long before Border Force have the system up and running at every airport making it impossible to go on hols before settling your tax bills or outstanding tv licence?
"Having control of employment rights in the UK parliament is not the same as running them down..." Technically you are correct but you would have to be pretty deaf to Priti Patel and co and their clear and oft stated intentions. That you added "completely" to your comment as in "completely biased against..." lends weight to the idea that you are so heavily biased in favour of brexit that any inconvenient fact is just false news to you.
"Boeing South Carolina is strictly driven by schedule and cost," he told the Beeb. Boeing denies his claims, let me cogitate. Whistleblower risks all to inform world.... And Boeing denies all. Who should I believe. Well I'm not a daft as a brush Brexiter so I go with the whistleblower I suppose, unless Mr Gove can persuade me otherwise!
Would it be possible to use electronically steerable antennas that can check that satellites are in the approximate direction that they say they are in? That way you might detect whether one or two sources are in disagreement with the others? I'm guessing it will be harder to accurately spoof signals from several different directions.
