A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

Another own goal but not by the Footie teams

However, in response to the petition Lord Hall said that the word Daesh risks giving "the impression of support" for the group's opponents and "would not preserve the BBC's impartiality".

38 dead and they still talk about impartiality when on other subjects they are anything but impartial eg Climate Change.

that link thing is odd - some work some don't I wonder what I'm doing wrong to get prepended to the links....

The InsidetheEA twitter feed is still popping the occasional item - I hope it's simply a billing oversight ..... I've emailed "Henry" asking.... aiui has some arcane methodology for recording stuff so it's not entirely reliable.... I have specifically submitted stuff over the years.

I know it was causing discomfort at Horizon House and I've been receiving a separate steady drizzle of anecdotage from disgruntled / indignant insiders and victims. This is one bureaucratic predator that isn't going to give up without a (dirty) fight.

An unexpected increase in the number of households saying they do not watch live TV so do not pay for a licence has been blamed for the shortfall."

So I'm blamed for 1000 people losing their jobs? I'm happy with that.....just a shame that so few of the bloated "bridge crew" of "our" broadcasting Titan will be joining them eh?

Watch out though - they are still pushing v.hard in the corridors of power for an Internet levy.

three in a row - enough!

In other news (or ... not maybe) the online plagiarism checker seems to have gotten amnesia / withered on the vine.

Perhaps one shouldn't be surprised as it was a "Hacked Off" vehicle which started out getting hoisted by its own petard.

That said - anybody know of a similar service? - there was one iirc that was very useful tracking BBC stories in a split column format.... ?

The EA whistleblower site Inside The EA has gone "off air" (DNS fails)

Some relief at the palatial Horizon House in Bristol and Millbank Tower in London if it's a permanent thing - and if it is - it'll be a shame. The EA being the epitome of a toxic, dysfunctional overspending out of control bureaucracy 'n all... cache

@SandyS "Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC)
like I say ..big official sounding name ..but one man band
"You mean like Piers Corbyn?"
.."Piers Corbyn" of WeatherAction which doesn't sound like a big official sounding name
..So I have no problem with that.
Otherwise many people like him and others like Willis on WUWT think he oversells himself by miles.

"At one time GREENWICH declared itself a Nuclear Free Zone." oblivious to thr fact that there was a trainer nuclear reactor in the Naval School there.

don't forget the UK has the capability to make small nuclear reactors in Derby. I used to live about half a mile as the crow flies from Rolls-Royce and Associates. Which was a lot less intrusive than Severn-Trent's Raynesway Wind facility.

At one time Derbyshire declared itself a Nuclear Free Zone.

"..governments should divert green subsidies into R&D aimed at better answers."

Good for Bill Gates, who largely seems to be spending his money on worthwhile causes like Malaria.

But they should start by funding a better class of question. Paying people to repetitively ask the question "Are we totally doomed because carbon dioxide is coming to destroy everything?" is counterproductive. Literally.

I should have added in the mean time we need to fully exploit gas and coal reserves.
