Everyone who calls themselves "wolf-something" or "something-wolf" almost inevitably turns out to be an irredeemable shitneck.

January 15th, but I have a feeling that's more of a 'guideline'

unless you specify a year then the procrastinators will just procrastinate

I hope everybody got what they wanted for Christmas, which is this:

Even the thing of 2008 that they copy pasted from was already outdated... which means they themselves had copy pasted from outdated papers as well.  :lulz:

Yes indeed. We truly are World Beating / in a very old fashioned way! As is only appropriate for a deluded nation of jingoistic numpties who are rocking off to dreams of a glorious Imperial past. I wonder if it was this embarassing to be a Roman watching their empire crumble . . . ?

Yeah, the deal's a shit sandwich, but at least it is a sandwich.

Now we just have to worry about the pandemic that is raging out of control. More deaths per capita than the USA, 50,000+ infections per day, schools still due to open in January...it's going to be a fucking mess.

Isn't there a gap between Brexit finalizing and the deal starting?
Sadly no, we've already had it. We actually left the EU last Jan 31 but nothing changed during the "transition period" so that businesses and real people could get ready for the new rules we agreed with the EU. So basically we've been a dead man walking for the last 11 months. Today we enter the brave new world where they finally pull the carpet out from under our feet and the shit hits the proverbial since nobody could reorganise themselves for the final wrench since the details were only actually agreed on Xmas eve and rubber stamped by elizabeth battenburg on New Years eve.
So now we have both run out of time and fallen into a timeslip of incompetence.

As witness:-
QuoteThe text of Boris Johnson's Brexit deal refers to 23-year-old web and email software and cyber-security methods which are decades out of date.

Netscape Communicator, last updated in 1997, and Mozilla Mail which was superceded in 1998 and ceased development in 2006, are referred to as "modern" internet software.

And the document recommends using outdated methods of encryption - 1024-bit RSA encryption and the SHA-1 hashing algorithm - which are vulnerable to cyber attacks.

It's thought the passages were copied and pasted from previous EU treaties or laws - possibly a 2008 Council decision which uses the same text.

OK then, the clock is ticking down . . .  and twitter seems to have caught the mood of the room

I just get a real buzz out of the fact that periodically my computer tells me that this is a dangerous place to be . . .

it is really sweet that it thinks I don't haven't already realised that  :wink:

Sounds about right. Here it's either Serco - who are neck-deep in with the Tories nowadays - or the aforementioned companies that never existed before now. I mean, I can go on Companies House and register United Vaccine Solutions Ltd in 10 minutes, but I bet I won't get any government contracts.

You would expect the press to report on things like this, but the press are too busy obsessing over the micro-dramas of Number 10 staffing to pay attention to the actual pandemic, let alone the corruption behind the contracts to "manage" the pandemic.

But the nice thing about having all these former government services neatly outsourced to shitshows like Capita & Serco is that - if we ever get a proper labour government again - it will be a doddle to just grab them by the short and curlies and re-nationalise them . . .

That's.... That doesn't work, the whole point of customs declaration is you need to control it at point of entry:

If the deliveries are for the UK trucks wont bother going down half way across the country to declare they will just go to destination. The only ones who will follow this were likely already heading for the channel tunnel.

Piracy is about to become rife, Ireland is really bad for drugs, smuggled cigs etc but this could also exacerbate the more serious things like human trafficking

Yeah, I reckon that's what Boris and his boys want . . . Batten down the hatches, shit's about to become real. Escaping to Ireland will become even harder if/when Pembrokeshire loses our ferry ports

Shit, which James Bond? Did he get lazered from crotch to face? If not Howl hasn't been doing his job. Sorry, respect for the dead, which one?

EDIT: Apparently live and let die didn't work out.
There is only one - but some call him Connery, Sean Connery . . .

Had to have the brain tickled, thankfully came back negative, but it was three days of being locked in a room away from herself and the baby, which is a lot of hard work.

Glad your brain isn't ticklish. It would leave us poor suuferers even deeper in the shit . . .
