One of the first news stories I came across today was ex. Culture Committee Chairman Damien Collins calling for British Ministers to copy the Aussies in making Google and Facebook pay for news content.
Ministers must follow Australia by making Facebook and Google pay for UK news media content to prevent the ‘death of the industry’, ex-Culture Committee chair Damian Collins says https://t.co/RA44exMycl (cobblers! all they do is steer people to the content with a brief snippet…
This doesn’t really make much sense to me as a nearly 21-year veteran of using the Interweb, as these platforms are mostly intended as a place to promote content with a snippet like the one above in order to help drive traffic to the news websites.
This is a concept so simple that even a Bernie Sanders supporter can make instructional videos about it telling people how to promote their content online, and then make money with it.
There have been a handful of posts like these going around about the once well known news service The Drudge Report, which for those of you who don’t know is a news aggregation service that has been sharing news from around the interweb on social media since before it was cool (much like I try to do with this place, kind of).
This one here being the most recent I have seen pointing out it isn’t what it was….

For many years, the Liberal Democrats have had some sort of yellow bird as their logo, much like a Canary, which for many years (since at least the 17th century), has been a popular avian pet to keep in a cage.

Despite this democratic vote to leave, the Liberal Democrats have been part of the problem of elitist moron politicians throwing a spanner in the works, and have vowed to continue doing so, and therefore must be destroyed like a rabid dog, never to inhabit elected government ever again.

I haven’t had chance to properly read the stories yet, but on Monday (16th Sept) there was due to be a meeting to discuss Brexit or something between British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his counterpart from the diminutive European country called Luxembourg.

The Speaker of the UK Parliment John Bercow MP (aka “Mr Squeaker”) has apparently launched an all-out attack on new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and apparently is toying with the idea of “procedural creativity” to continue screwing-up Brexit for the majority who democratically voted for it.
Outgoing Speaker John Bercow threatens Boris Johnson with ‘procedural creativity’ to stop him ignoring anti-No Deal #Brexit law on 31 October in all-out attack comparing PM to a BANK ROBBER https://t.co/sZnrr6X49d via @MailOnline
