What a shame we have such a weak leader, a strong leader would tell the Irish what to do with their "advice". We have a leader of a very small and unimportant country telling us what we should do, you really could not make it up.



This is the most telling quote of the bunch for me, the impression I get from brexiteers is that the empire should be restored, these little people should just do as we say and know that its best for them. They were clearly under the impression that they would say exactly what they wanted from brexit and everyone would just tow the line and get on with it, the fact that their "unimportant" neighbour is causing all this fuss over a border is just unfathomable to them. The calls for Ireland to exit as well are even more hollow when this whole thing shows the value of staying in, you can stand up to your big bully neighbour and your friends will stand with you and not let you be pushed around.

A small, unimportant country trying to tell other, larger countries what to do is literally Brexit :lol:

McDonald's to get rid of plastic straws.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44492352

But what does Jeremy Corbyn think about it all??

Both he and McDonald's have been big supporters of the IRA in the past.

Plastic straws, plastic explosives... it's all the same to him I suppose?


I'm no fan of McDonald's but this is complete nonsense, an urban myth. It arose because IRA contributions appeared on US wage slips, but it's an Individual Retirement Account - a US pension scheme, nothing to do with the IRA/Noraid.


Welcome to the Tory Nanny State.

Deliberate policy encouraging plastic distraction for the masses so that they don't realise what's really going on.

Enjoy your stay.


Another casualty of Theresa Dismay's incessant complaining about plastic. I hope you like your McDonald's milkshakes with little pieces of paper from the paper straws!

When will people realize that Plasticgate has gone too far?


I’m getting really tired of this nonsense.

The response to any perceived problem, ban ban ban without a second thought to the people who’ll loose their jobs and livelihoods. Its both lazy and reckless.
If something needs tackling, it’s the root of the problem, littering.


The most read / pushed headlines on the great BBC:

1 Robbie gesture 2 Boris Becker immunity 3 Comedian's killing Australia 4 Which courses boost wages 5 plastic straws 6 'hormonal mess but it's worth it' 7 Q: heroine's real name 8 missing body identified 9 Universal Credit 'could cost more' 10 The make-up mogul

Except 4 and 9, totally useless. Thats whats wrong here, not the plastic straws.


People who voted Brexit arent stupid they can see there are no houses for everyone that comes here, they can also see the NHS struggling to deal with this many people coming here. They can also feel their disposable income shrinking by the minute. Dont blame Brexit voters for being stupid blame the EU for not giving Cameroon concessions on free movement, youre being stupid.


Everything you just listed has nothing to do with movement of people and everything to do with the economic crisis caused by the US, the automation of production, advancements in technology and so on. So, it's fair to say Leave voters are not the most intelligent, because they choose a scapegoat rather than have to think a little more about the ACTUAL causes of their concerns.


Youre contradicting yourself, you say its not about people coming here its about automation and advancements in technology. Well isnt that more of a reason to stop people coming here, if were not able to provide jobs for our own people because of what you stated then how would having more people help the situation. You didnt think that through really did you now...


Why do we need straws in the first place. Another fashion accessory to be seen to be drinking with?


It's all too little too late. The sooner we destroy the planet and ultimately ourselves the better!


Seems to me the typical keyboard liars slagging off McDonalds when in reality they shovel far worse down their throats at home. In fact a McDonalds is probably their best meal of the week.


While cca 3 billion asians are littering the planet beyond belief, this little island is having a straw-man pat on the back on BBC, ignoring the chavs that throw litter around everywhere, and even further ignoring much more serious problems this country is facing.

Here is to the robbies middle finger!

That's not true, it's far worse than that. If you say you use plastic they literally throw you into Burger King.

We should all head over to one of the former British colonies. They have plastic straws five times the size our our British plastic straws.

I thought Britain has decent sized straws on average, but Frances average straws were bigger.

IBM’s machine argues, pretty convincingly, with humans.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-44531132

Is there an "alternate facts" switch on it for Brexit-eers and Trump-sters?

-

No the switch will be for bad loosers and traitors.


Teaching machines to 'think' to show how 'smart' we are is actually pretty dumb. They'll soon analyse our history and reach the inevitable logical conclusion that we fail to learn and are a threat to ourselves and everything else on the planet - including thinking machines. Terminator genesis.


The Nazi inspired machine will no doubt resonate with the Globalisation Neo-Liberal Fascists of today.


Dave Lee and BBC called anyone who disagreed with changeing history and adding more women to video games bigots the other day

Now the definition of bigot is a person who is intolerant of others person or groups views ideas opinion on a subject

It turns out BBC is the intolerant biased bigots.

Even this computer can work out more men can kill women in video games now and definition bigot


How long before 'they' become sentient and decide that humans are no longer required? scary!


Why would I want to argue with a machine when I have the wife. She is always right as well.


I’d like the pit this machine in a debate with my ex wife. She’s a complete nutcase and I expect it would send the machine into a meltdown


Oh yeh? Get it to argue against a woman. Checkmate!


Cold Hard infallible logic meets Warm Human emotive fallibility, deep down i am concern by this and where it leads. Humans tried Cold Hard Infallible Logic (USSR et al) and the body counts were huge.


IBM invented Wife v2.0.


Isacc Asimov got it wrong. Robotics has only one law:

"No robot may by action or inaction threaten the manufacturer's profits"

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Watching the video of it in action - why don't they give it a really malevolent voice, something like Sovereign from Mass Effect 1. That'd be hilarious.

edit: Like this



Imagine how the less-informed would react :lol:
