    Awful news coining out of Malaysia this morning. The poor family, looks like something sinister but hopefully it was some kind of accident.

    Yeah really horrific news story overall and sadly the conclusion looks like what most probably expected but hoped against.

    Even the busses are gay now, I saw a Garda car today with a price flag painted on the back, as Helen Lovejoy famously said "won't somebody think of the children".

    https://www.thejournal.ie/public-services-card-data-retention-4767937-Aug2019/

    "The department's communication with the public was inadequate"

    You dont fuckin say. I listened to Regina Doherty on the radio when they were being rolled out deny that biometric data was being recorded,then listing things that would be recorded that matched exactly with the definition of biometric data that she'd just had read out to her. They've also kept telling everybody that the card is not compulsory to access a lot of government services,but it is mandatory!!! No...me neither.
