How about working together for a common goal, the future we are creating by our present actions for our future generations.
Well yes. Our forefathers did that. They invented, improved and discovered all kinds of things to make life easier, to make the working week shorter, to increase leisure time, to make life “Better”.
What happened? The greedy purchased the means of production and the poor lost their jobs. Then they had the audacity to claim that the unemployed were taking their “hard earned money” and they should get a job, for as small a wage as possible because we don’t need the poor anymore we have machines, or cheap offshore labour to make our toys now.
But I was suggesting a portable UPS
Simple enough for even the most electrically inept person, well almost.
Car battery, battery charger and a simple sine-wave inverter. All available from a reputable motor accessory shop near you, or even Repco ;-)
Connect the whole caboodle together, plug in the charger and you’re done. Leave it plugged in and it will be ready when you need it.
Of course a good three stage charger will lengthen the life of your battery and a deep cycle battery will do the job better than a starting battery for longer periods, lithium iron yttrium if you are flush with cash.
Get a larger inverter and you can also run a few led lights around the house.
At a push you could get away with just an inverter and swap out the car battery for short outages.
You can go even more exotic with an ATS (automatic transfer switch) so it kicks in when it is needed, automagicly.
Again, Labour delivered the message poorly….
Labour has, on many occasions, delivered many sane and promising policy statements.
The Media and those who have only their own interests at heart, have stuck their collective fingers in there ears shouting “LA LA LA LA CAN’T HEAR YOU” and then stated, truly, that… “I haven’t heard anything from Labour, they have no policy as far as I can see”. The willfully blind led by the one eyed neo-lib ideologists down a road to debt driven oblivion.
That is so composite...
Well plyed Sir.
wasn’t clear from Manu’s reply whether he’s had to sign that contract to get it.
True. I had assumed that he would have mentioned it if he had but assumptions are rarely gospel. Come to think of it though, the Gospel seems to assume a lot.
Also, it’s clear the contract isn’t only demanded of Dr Gilbert, but of all researchers wanting to access police statistics.
Apparently not according to Manu Caddie an earlier poster.
I’ve been working closely with Police and local gangs but haven’t been denied any information requested
Subjective and discretionary.
A bit like the police in general, it goes along with “Policespeak”
“The accused was observed operating a motor vehicle on a public road whilst being brown, he assaulted a police officer by hitting the officer in the foot with his testicles in an attempt to evade arrest”
Can you ask Mark Evans to send me some olives when he gets all the way to Spain.
He will never pass through the core so don't be getting your hopes up there.
This process includes a Police vetting check on individuals involved in a research application.
“the police are the public and that the public are the police”
And this, from the British Home Office... regarding surveillance
Surveillance by consent should be regarded as analogous to policing by consent. In the
British model of policing, police officers are citizens in uniform. They exercise their powers
to police their fellow citizens with the implicit consent of their fellow citizens. Policing by
consent is the phrase used to describe this. It denotes that the legitimacy of policing in
the eyes of the public is based upon a general consensus of support that follows from
transparency about their powers, demonstrating integrity in exercising those powers and
their accountability for doing so.
