Hillary Clinton: 2024 will be 'ground zero' for AI election manipulation

Re: Photo ID in UK

The BMA is the doctors trade union you absolute weapon. Anything less than 100% of GDP isn't enough spending for them.

Next up: Athur Scargill says that the mines were under-subsidised to the tune of 500bn/year....

Again. The waiting lists is because the left ( opposition and almost all the media ) wanted to entirely shut the entire country down including the NHS and castigated Boris for suggesting that might not be ideal.

Those bastards, increasing NHS spending to the highest level it has ever been in real terms.

( Covid, and the left-wing establishment campaign to shut down the entire country including the health service, is what fucked the NHS )

Saying that he's an effective leader ( or whatever it was he said about him ) doesn't prove "collusion", it proves that he has an opinion.

Are opinions collusion now?

Re: Photo ID in UK

The UK is the only European country which does not require a photo ID to vote.

Labour require photo ID for their internal elections.

Stopping voting fraud is a good thing and is only opposed by people who must be assumed to benefit from it.

Collaboration is the worst thing to happen in politics.

It led to the post-war consensus in which Britain got to vote for their socialism in a red or blue tie.

There are downsides to FPTP that maybe AV could have solved, but a PR based system is a government where everything is decided in back rooms by parties horse trading away their promises in exchange for power.

Re: Been there done that

There was some semblance of classical liberalism in that version of the Conservative party - Cameron et al hadn't quite completed the left-wing makeover of the party. And the Lib Dems in coalition were a little bit more classically liberal than they are now too.

Now they're all just statist parties fighting over who gets to grow the state by the largest amount.

Re: What could possibly go wrong.

People should give governments a wide berth, but they keep voting to make them bigger.

We don't need ID cards and we certainly don't need the social credit score that will surely follow.

And the left-wing parties and their more idiotic followers would bleat on endlessly about how it's better than having something made in the private sector because heaven forbid somebody make make a profit.

Even if they destroy the date when you turn 21 initially, that will eventually stop happening.

This is a necessary component of the social credit score.

Re: Polish plumber

It was never about "foreigners taking our jobs". Don't lie.

It was *partially* about importing millions of unskilled workers and using them to drive down wages.

That's why our productivity is so low ( why make capex investments in more efficient machinery when you can hire a Pole for minimum wage? ).

"British food is crap" is further manifestation of the Orwell quote 'almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during God Save The King than stealing from a poor box.

It's been fashionable for a very long time for that sort to hate their country and everything about it and wish that they were French.

It marks the speaker out as somebody without an original thought in their head but still considers themselves better than you or I.

Re: Ok adding my not so consipracy take...

Surely you know that is untrue. And surely you know that I know that that is untrue, so why post that lie?

All broadcast media was firmly against brexit to the point of repeating even the obvious lies by Project Fear ( what happened to WW3 that you promised us if we dared vote against your little political club? )

Re: Rowes

Vaguely adjacent to being on topic, but I'll tell you something that is better than I thought it would be:

Rustler burgers ( and similar chicken subs, etc )

They aren't spectacular but they are better than you'd think, especially if you follow the "advanced" instructions and toast the bread separately as it suggests. For something that cooks in a couple of minutes in they are surprisingly good.

The worst part about them is they have about 6 million calories in a single burger.

Re: Ok adding my not so consipracy take...

It is a lie to pretend that money was promised to the NHS. It was a strong suggestion that if we didn't send the EU money, we could spend it elsewhere - the NHS perhaps.

The NHS got that money by the way. T.May boosted the NHS funding by over £350m/week. That's partly why NHS spending is higher in real terms than it has ever been.

The sunlit uplands? Our politicians being directly accountable for how badly we are governed *is* the sunlit uplands. So is the CPTPP. So is not being part of the EU "regulatory superpower".

Where's the catastrophe that you pretended was going to happen?

I have to agree with you on too much cheap icing covering up a dry cake.

A good Victoria sponge is brilliant. But you can't mask overcooking it by covering it in half-inch thick royal icing.

I have no idea why German sausages are so celebrated. Was that their main war aim in WW2? If so, does that mean that the Nazi's won really?

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

We only do peasant food really well because our self-appointed "betters" have always wished they were French.

British sausages are underrated, Lincolnshire sausages are miles better than any plain pale German offering. Obviously British beer doesn't need me or anybody else to stand up for it.

( PS: The French call us Rosbif's for a reason - I assume it's because they are jealous of a people that every Sunday eat gravy with a knife and fork )

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

Of course they aren't brilliant but they're on the value-for-money end of the market.

I've not been in a Greggs for a long time but for the money their pasties were good. Obviously "for the money" is a significant modifier there.

And despite spending vastly overspending, the remain campaign couldn't even beat that and managed to lose.

Nobody is going to argue with you.

Not because you are right but all these years later we have learned that no good can come from talking to extremists such as yourself. Your fingers are firmly in your ears and it's tedious.

Re: Ok adding my not so consipracy take...

I'm not reading all that ranting but:

Somebody lied that Brexit had harmed economic growth, I pointed out that that is factually and demonstrably untrue.

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

German sausages are crap. Stop fetishising foreign things because they are foreign. It's bizarre.

Nobody is fetishising Greggs. It provides extremely cheap food with immediate delivery. It isn't the best, but that isn't always the only metric?

Their Cornish pasties are alright.

It's grown faster than the EU average, faster than Germany and faster than France continually.

It's only "divided" because anti-democrats like you won't let it go.

Re: Plus ça change

I got a letter from a debt collection agency a few years ago saying that I had unpaid bills and if I didn't pay up they were going to come and take my stuff.

It turned out that there was somebody with the same name including middle name a few miles away and they meant to send it to him.

I don't even understand how that mistake happened. Did they just search a database for my name in my town and pick the first one they came across?

All sorted with a phone call though, they didn't make it a hassle.

Chinese 'connected' cars are a national security threat, says Biden

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

Re: Are the United States

China has a ludicrous demographic crisis coming to a head in the next decade and an economy propped up by its construction sector ( 30% of GDP ) - a sector that is immolating as we speak.

That's why China is getting more aggressive with Taiwan - it wants to achieve its military objectives before its ability to fund it collapses.

Re: By 'no radio' you mean AM/FM

My guess is that they would work like the Apple air-tags. They communicate through *any* apple phone they are in range of.

Do you have any actual evidence of GB News blaming an entire culture for the crimes of members of that group?

Faith will only get you so far. Perhaps go and read. Plenty of "mainstream" outlets have accepted that the "Russian disinformation" claim was a lie. You can even find out who was responsible for it if you can be bothered to read.

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

The Hunter Biden laptop story was true. That's not even debated anymore. Go and read about it, you'll be shocked and appalled.

From Time magazine:

"In the suit, Hunter Biden says the computer repair shop owner didn't have a legal right to copy data from Biden's laptop and pass it to others."

Not that it wasn't his. But that the repair shop owner didn't have the right to show people the evidence of bribery.

Re: "Fact-checkers will label AI-generated media for upcoming EU elections"

Governments have no business declaring what is deemed to be true.

That's what the press is meant to be for, although they aren't doing their job.

Also MSM is quite a complimentary term given that "mainstream" media is barely mainstream anymore.

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

Re: Poacher turned gamekeeper? Or...

It's not even that.

It's creating a moat. If you want to compete with Facebook, you have to provide "fact checking" that is amenable to the every expanding state.

The intention is to price startups out of the market. And if they can get Twitter banned for not blocking right wing voices then that's even "better".

Huge companies want regulation - they can afford to comply. Their future potential competitors can't.

Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells Silver badge

Will this be like the time they fact checked the Hunter Biden laptop story and deemed it to be Russian information despite it turning out to be entirely 100% factual?

Expect this to benefit anybody pushing to enlarge the state and nobody else.

To be fair, why would a minister give a sign-off for a website to remove the word "beta"?

They are then taking responsibility for every bug in the system, every external service it uses, etc.

They don't expect the press to play fair so why risk their career over something so trivial?

There's also ( likely funded by dodgy regimes who want to keep the supply to themselves ) ideological left-wing opposition against any mining taking place in the west.

Just like how Russia funded the anti-fracking protesters in the UK and Poland - if either of those countries had started fracking at scale, Russia's boot would have been off Germany's neck forever.
