Labour Leadership Benefit Bashing Battle

Andy-Burnham 1442924c

Burnham and the other failed politicians trying to look UKIP to win Labour Leadership
Labour Leadership Benefit Bashing Battle
by WikiGuido

Mere weeks after running an election campaign on “hated” benefit cuts, Labour are falling over themselves trying to out-tough eachother on welfare. Andy Burnham continues his rebranding as a centrist by saying people on benefits should not have “an easy ride”:

“some people say that Labour want to be soft on people who want something for nothing. We’ve got to be honest about that.”

UN Warns Theresa May Over Snapchat

UN Warns Theresa May Over Snapchat
by technoguido

united nations snapchat

A United Nations report has resolutely backed the right for people to use encrypted communications program such as sexting apps WhatsApp and Snapchat. The report published yesterday warns governments against forcing software companies to install ‘backdoors’ in their products. Both Obama and Digital Dave are keen to do exactly that…

“States should not restrict encryption and anonymity, which facilitate and often enable the rights to freedom of opinion and expression. Blanket prohibitions fail to be necessary and proportionate. States should avoid all measures that weaken the security that individuals may enjoy online, such as backdoors, weak encryption standards and key escrows.”

Even a stopped clock…

Liz Ken-D’oh!

LizKendall

Liz Kendall, an uninspiring race in a candate choice of uninspiring failed politicians, voted less exciting than watching paint dry

“As Labour leader I will launch an “inspiring the future” programme, bringing together businesses, activists and union members”, revealed Liz Kendall this morning as she attempted to put some clear blue water between herself and the other candidates.

Just one problem: it already exists.

Comrades point out that the Speakers for Schools charity already brings together businesses, activists and union members, and others besides. Not only that, it is backed by Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham. Who visit regularly. But not by Liz…

How FIFA Tried To Distract the World at Its Annual Conference Today

How FIFA Tried To Distract the World at Its Annual Conference Today
by technoguido

14 FIFA officials have been charged with corruption and their President is facing calls to resign, but that hasn’t stopped football’s governing body from rolling out the red carpet for the opening ceremony of its annual conference today.

Perhaps they were hoping the FBI would be distracted by their glamarous host:

Or perhaps these scantily clad female dancers:

fifa8

If not, there was this dude singing Swiss power ballads:

fifa20

With a ballerina:

fifa12

And this lady blowing some sort of Swiss national horn:

fifa1

And this guy playing the drums:

fifa7

All culminating bizarrely with a lady pirouetting in a circle again and again:

fifa9

And flags. Lots of flags.

fifa4

You wouldn’t know their bosses had just had their doors kicked down in morning raids, would you?

Gatwick’s plan is simpler, cheaper, faster and quieter

Gatwick’s plan is simpler, cheaper, faster and quieter
by WikiGuido
Sponsored post.

At Gatwick, we believe the economic benefits of airport expansion must be balanced with the impact on the environment. Only Gatwick can offer the new runway the UK needs but at a fraction of the environmental cost of other options.

Air quality is a critical issue in the debate over where the UK’s next runway should be built – indeed, it has been a major factor in the vehement opposition to previous attempts by Heathrow to expand. The issue has now become fundamental to the choice that lies ahead.

It is an issue that cannot be ignored.

The area around Heathrow currently breaches legal air quality limits and it defies common sense that a third runway – with hundreds of thousands of extra car journeys that it would bring – is the solution to the problem. Air quality has been a showstopper for Heathrow before and it is now clear that it will be again.

In contrast, Gatwick has never breached legal air quality limits and its location means it can guarantee that it never will. This decision is about the economy and the environment. Gatwick’s plan is simpler, cheaper, faster and quieter – above all it can actually happen.
