  1. In addition to her attempts to impose 'Henry VII' clauses to give senior ministers power to completely by-pass parliament and change even primary legislation by decree, May is now trying to give a minority government more than its normal share of (selected) members on standing committees which create legislation. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/theresa-may-rigging-parliament-committee-of-selection-standing-committees_uk_59b1a514e4b0dfaafcf68a04 "A controversial new motion tabled by Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom seeks to ensure that Conservatives have a majority on all standing committees that are the powerhouses of all prospective laws." "The motion, tabled by Leadsom on Thursday for a vote next Tuesday, states that Commons rules will be changed so that “where a committee has an odd number of members, the Government shall have a majority”." “The British people will not understand how having voted to deny the Conservatives a majority, the Tories can alter the rules of Parliament to ensure they have one." The powerful but little known Committee of Selection chooses which MPs go on select committees that scrutinise policy and ministers, and standing committees that govern legislation. The Leadsom motion sets the Committee up with nine members, but specifies that there will be five Tory members. "In 1995, then Commons Leader Tony Newton passed a motion guaranteeing a majority on committees only as long as a Government had a majority of the whole House."
  2. The government has today said they are to introduce anti-trolling laws. The proposed plans will make it easier for the victims of internet trolls to bring actions against either the ISP or the site owner where the comments were posted, or if the ISP or site owner discloses details of the troll the liability shifts from the site owner to the troll themselves. The source of this is all over Sky News this morning :- http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16245551 To be honest its about time after being the victim of a troll myself, and if the law was changed I would almost certainly pursue a troll through the courts.
  3. In the early months of 2010, Golden Eye (International) Ltd, a company connected with the Ben Dover porn brand, decided to chance their hand at obtaining settlements from alleged file-sharers in the UK. Although they successfully obtained the identities of alleged file-sharers through the court using the Tilly Bailey & Irvine (TBI) law firm, things quickly went wrong for GoldenEye. TBI pulled out due to bad publicity and the company was eventually fined late 2011 by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority for their mishandling of the cases. In September 2011, Golden Eye were back again, trying to extract money from Internet users via the previously untested route of the small claims court. But in December 2011 it all fell apart following proper scrutiny in the High Court. And now, in March 2012, unbelievably Golden Eye are back again with a third attempt. http://torrentfreak.com/pay-up-or-else-bittorrent-scheme-resurrected-in-uk-high-court-120309/ Posted this here for info, hopefully it wont take people by suprise like acs law. I download nothing, but always expect a letter lol
  4. We all (hopefully) know that continuing to use Windows XP is a risky business. The operating system stopped receiving security patches from Microsoft in April 2014, which means anyone still relying on the platform is at risk of being impacted by vulnerabilities that are being fixed in more modern versions of the operating system. In other words, XP users are living in a state of perpetual zero-day. But, perhaps you decided to persist with Windows XP, despite the pleas from Microsoft to give it up, and the advice of security professionals. Maybe you decided to run a freebie anti-virus solution like Microsoft Security Essentials on your XP computers in an attempt to protect yourself from the uptick in vulnerability threats and malware attacks. Well, now you have an additional problem. Because Microsoft officially ends XP support for its Malicious Software Removal Tool and updates for Microsoft Security Essentials today. Actually it ended on the 14th
  5. http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/new-job.html The worst part of this is she went from being deemed unfit for work indefinitely to a £60k salaried management position, a nice point for IDS to press i am sure. Is she a sellout or could she do some good from within? (Her own words)
