A friend's 13yo daughter was barred entry into a fast food franchise unless she signed up to a contact tracing app earlier today.

It is better to have collected and lost than to have never collected at all, I guess.

Or maybe it's precisely the opposite. Depends which way up your glass is.

Speaking of which... "Bartender... Same again."

But, sadly, all we have is the ruin of last night's experimental pizza and some worryingly lumpy milk.

Hi. Some of you may know me as the raving loon from the Politics Thread but I also dabble in amateur script writing.

I have no idea what to say next.

I hope that helps.

I wonder which MPs voted for this new restriction, which ones abstained and which ones voted against...

I further wonder how our representatives will vote on the World Economic Forum's Great Reset initiative. I guess we won't get to vote on it because we aren't "global stakeholders." At least, I'd be astonished if we are.

Quote from: Jim_Campbell
A boring footnote....

Not boring at all, Jim, and very clearly presented.

I know we come at things from different perspectives (you as a statist and me as an anarchist) but I think we both want much the same thing - a safe and prosperous society.

One of the major bars to a better society, arguably even the major one, is the current monopolistic money creation process. I would be in favour of a (suitably reformed) state taking full control of this process for the good of society and not, as is currently the case, for the profit of a small "elite" class.

As for "contact tracing," I think it's all very nice until a Hitler or a Stalin gets his hands on it.

As it says in one of those articles, open the classroom windows.

Sorry, that first link doesn't work properly so you'll have to pick the article out of the rest when you get there.
