    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    Macron's had a major speech written for him: French president Emmanuel Macron will describe Brexit as a wake-up call in a speech this month when he will say Europe must be more assertive in the face of rival world powers, according to sources close to the Élysée Palace. His words are intended as a “warning shot” for a continent unable to project power and defend itself, say aides. They describe the speech as Mr Macron’s most important since he urged fundamental reform of the European Union in 2017. “This is a critical time,” said a source close to President Macron. “If we Europeans don’t want to have other Brexits and become trapped in a naive defence of status quo, we have to wake up.” https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/brexit/macron-to-warn-on-need-to-avert-further-exits-from-eu-1.3798050 Europe, Please Wake Up Feb 11, 2019 GEORGE SOROS Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991. Neither our leaders nor ordinary citizens seem to understand that we are experiencing a revolutionary moment, that the range of possibilities is very broad, and that the eventual outcome is thus highly uncertain. Most of us assume that the future will more or less resemble the present, but this is not necessarily so. ...In the United Kingdom, too, an antiquated party structure prevents the popular will from finding proper expression https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/political-party-systems-undermining-european-union-by-george-soros-2019-02

    1990s music

    Great tune, cheers
  4. I think they should be open about what they're doing without my consent.
  5. And I emailed the Conservative party for the area to ask if they were aware of it. Edit: and I invited them to discuss it with us here, hope nobody minds.
  6. The culture of a personality cult isn't helpful to politics. I'd say it's not just pointless, it's nefarious.
  7. I emailed this guy: https://twitter.com/JP_Biz Edit: and this guy too - https://twitter.com/nickmon1112
  8. I really don't want to make an account there again, but if needs must I suppose I will.
  9. Maybe someone could tweet a person using that job title and ask if they agree.
  10. Without my consent, I don't think it's legal, ethical or normal.
  11. Information commissioner? For the SAR, will do and update, cheers edit: found it: https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/your-personal-information-concerns/personal-information-concerns/personal-information-concerns-report/
  12. I'm not a lawyer, but I'm very curious to know exactly that. I've escalated the complaint so far and I'll submit the SAR, but they have no right to be building the database in the first place.
  13. Reposting from tos: Not long after moving into a new rental in a new area I received a council tax bill, although council tax is included in the rent and the landlady is liable. I thought it strange the local council had my personal data to contact me at all, as I'd never given it to them. I went to ask about it and a person who didn't gave their name eventually called me back from an unknown number, told me it was a mistake and to destroy the bill. I thought that strange too. I submitted a written complaint and received a response that said the landlady had to fill in a form with the details of the tenants. But I never gave consent to anyone to hand over my data and I hate them building these databases they never secure properly and that could fall into anyone's hands. I've posted an anonymised copy of the response I received here:  https://telegra.ph/Email-from-local-council-showing-renters-database-02-06 I have a copy of the form that was submitted which has also been redacted. I don't have a twitter or a facebook account, but I hoped some readers here might help by: - writing to ask if your local government has been doing this too  - asking some journalists to do start doing their f*c*ing job
