6. This is the state of affairs today

Isabel is not wrong. Such types as Hannah are coming out of the woodwork and they are not pleasant people – De Niro springs to mind, Springsteen, Milano – vile people and yet we watched their output for so long.

And where are the police on their doorstep at dawn for hate speech?

5.  Sounds fun down in SA

The problem of speeding on South African roads recently garnered public attention after a video of a driver reaching 309km/h on the N1 in Gauteng was posted to social media.

The driver was subsequently arrested for the offence, but Justice Project South Africa chair Howard Dembovsky argues that prosecution is not a common outcome when dealing with high-speed offenders.

“This raises the question why this particular person has been treated entirely differently to every other person who exceeds the speed limit by more than 30km/h on a public road situated in an urban area or more than 40km/h on a public road outside of an urban area or on a freeway,” Dembovsky told MyBroadband.

“Such persons are caught on SANS 1795-approved speed cameras every day, and I have not heard of a single arrest taking place.”

Ex-TalkTalk director, 43, who led cyber security operation after £77m data breach scandal sues the telecoms giant over claims her £110,000 salary was 40% less than men doing similar job

Who made her director?  On what basis?

2.  Rotten people exposed

If they say it’s to protect you, it’s not:

The UK government plans to introduce a new law designed to improve the security standards of household products connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). The legislation stipulates that all consumer smart devices sold in the UK — such as smart cameras and TVs, wearable health trackers and connected appliances — adhere to three specific requirements.

      Not sure I understand your last statement.

      The first is, I hope, a tightening up of the almost non existanr security around such devices.

      The second is UUHF radio equipment that the US seems to think is the playground of their manufacturers who are so far behind it’s not funny.
