The Bad Apple

1993 Apple took Atari to court over OS similarities, lost, but bankrupted Atari in the process, Atari ST web browser CAB (Crystal Atari Browser) migrated to Mac and became “iCAB”, the first time for the “i” appearing before product.

Circa 2014 Apple take Samsung to court over OS similarities….. lost again I believe.

Apple were the original “Alt right”, they are not an ethically minded company, using Ireland to make components up, then moving on to Asian countries (Philippines I believe), and then BBC’s Panorama showing a factory where Apple products are being made, and a worker faints due to poor working conditions.

Can we not move on? Can we not “Take back control” Do we really need to pay homage to the Bad, the Bad and the Ugly of American commercialism, it seems we do, it would seem that brexiteer or remainers alike, The British people, who “Love their country so dearly”, who are so “Patriotic” feel it their duty to ignore and destroy anything British or successful.

I won’t visit iTunes, you can’t make me!

Important political policies A.K.A why I won’t vote Labour

Pubs and clubs need support, We need to encourage live entertainment, We need to make and support live entertainment venues. (I haven’t heard anything from Labour on this)

Support for LGBTQI, Really does it matter what the government thinks about this? Yes in a broad sense, but in a more specific sense there are now organisations ready to take on the mantle, Support organisations that support equality.

Proportional Representation; A system of government where we are not left to be bullied and belittled by the oafs and the oinks, the torys and the labour party. Fairer government NOW.

 

Support for renewables, a complete shift away from paying money to Russia for them to pipe gas over 4000 miles, and then we have a situation where Denmark sell renewable created electricity to us when they are producing a surplus. GET THE THICK HEADS out of government. If we put solar panels on every roof across Britain, what’s the worst that could happen? people save 20% on their fuel bills and so have more money to spend and so we have a healthier economy? The political class’s obstruction to renewable identifies them as delinquent.

Support for British innovation/talent. Brexiteers have none of this, the tory’s have none of this, Labour have none of this.

Raspberry Pi, now running RiSC OS, a British developed Operating system, last seen circa 1998, now put onto Raspi by popular request. The ARM cpu, a British innovation, in every mobile device on the planet, now ARM may leave British shores due to brexit!? Because Nobody cares about British. Rockstar, a computer games company in Scotland, made GTA, the biggest selling game in 2014, What recognition do we show? Not a lot. Media Molecule a successful games company in Guilford, and there are more, We have great artists and we need to support our successes. Harry Potter written by JK Rowling. We have writers, artists, we have a wealth of talent which our political system is oblivious too, rather than support our British talent the political system insists on ensuring that money flows away from our country via commercialism, via capitalism.

The torys support capitalism and inadvertently and through pig headed thickiness Labour too are capitalism’s best friend.

The Labour party are a party of the past, not because the core values are no longer applicable, but because the current Labour administration and the current labour party member only understand factory workers, shop workers. They are blinkered, work is more than labouring and factory work, the people who Labour “Could” have as voters are ignored by Labour.

Look at people like Michael Caine, Paul McCartney, Morrissey, coming out in support of brexit, because they have worked hard but all our country has done is to chase them away. They are bitter and looking for somebody to blame, but rather than recognise and blame our ignorant backwards thinking political class they choose to blame the EU. Rather than blame the mess of a commercial capitalist system that manufactured their escape from Britain’s tax greedy clutches.

 

This Friday, Stand With Bandcamp in Support of Trans Rights

Bandcamp Daily

trans-fundraiser-600-7

Bandcamp is a platform for artistic expression, and all manner of variance in experience and identity, including gender and sexuality, is welcome here. We support our LGBT+ users and staff, and we stand against any person or group that would see them further marginalized. This includes the current U.S. administration, and its recent capricious declaration that transgender troops will no longer be able to serve in the military. That this announcement was motivated in part to help fund the border wall exposes it as part of the administration’s cynical, discriminatory agenda.

In response, we will be donating 100% of our share of every sale on Friday, August 4th (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time) to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly to change law, policy, and culture for the more equitable. TLC does critical policy advocacy and litigation on multiple fronts, fights for healthcare…
