Is the Oil&Gas industry going to fight back? There might be early signs of that happening:
"ExxonMobil Isn't Going To "Fake It" - Rex Tillerson Takes On The 40-Year Smear Of The Oil Industry"

Messenger: In the real world, people are employed because of their ability to do the job; if the can't do the job they are encouraged to leave. In the BBC people are employed to fit the PC requirements of race/gender/disability etc etc, not for their ability. That is why so many people employed by the BBC are useless at their jobs.

And yet again from the Telegraph.
We're not really surprised at this potential development, are we?

Report in the DT (with impressive video) of a volcanic eruption in Japan brings to three (Galapagos and Nicaragua being the others) the number of what look like fair-sized eruptions in the last week.
I wonder whether we are going to see these reflected in temperature figures in the coming months. 'Snowfall in Paris' would make an interesting song.
(Incidentally, when did 'vulcanologists' become 'volcanologists'? About the same time we stopped expecting journalists to know the English language and to have some slight grasp on what they were writing about, presumably.)

What is the difference between the BBC advertising for someone who must have a disability and the BBC advertising for someone who must be white, black or a supporter of the Labour party. Aren't they all discriminatory?

Private browsing is definitely the best way to read the Telegraph on chrome. It will eventually block you, but then you just close the private window and open another one and it all starts afresh.

All browsers I used have an "private" function. Pale Moon and Firefox under the File menu. Chrome under the Menu button (the one with the three bars), Safari has one as well but I can't remember where.

Why bother with all that? In Chrome, CTRL+SHIFT+N to open an incognito browser window and browse away!

Geoff - I found deleting all cookies etc on Chrome was a bit of a sledgehammer to let me read the DT so I found the way to do it selectively - which is not so intuitive. So, FWIW, here's the process I use:

Click triple horizontal bars in top right (sorry if too simple)
Click settings,
At the bottom of screen (you may have to scroll), click advanced settings
Click Clear Browsing data
Click on Content Settings
Click on All Cookies and site data (a list of cookie sites appears)
You can do a search on this list for 'tele' or scroll down to Telegraph
Remove selected cookies by clicking on the 'X' alongside the DT with the most cookies
Hope this helps.
