"It didn't occur to us it would create any offence to our Welsh speaking staff."
Who would have thought a ban on using Welsh, in Wales, would cause offence?

Job centre bs, right wing politics
Playing pro-austerity propaganda in a job centre telling people they deserve their livelihoods ruined feels fucking hateful. "how can we possibly pay for it??? Anyway, we need more military funding" hearing that shit while your livelihood and your money you depend on to survive is constantly weighed and whittled away is. . . It's driving me crazy.

spitting some truth at the mic.
I think if we're serious about reclaiming the tools of the information age into a paradigm that remains human we have to take up the challenge of #SmallTech
I hope to see similar trends over here.

Hey @aral you absolute badass, nice work at the EU :)
Some good news for your Friday! 🎉🎉
@Frontex, the EU border agency, have cancelled plans to give up to €400k to a surveillance company to spy on the social media of migrants and “civil society and diaspora communities in destinations (EU)”.
So Tesla designed a phenomonally awful-looking pickup truck called the Cybertruck.
I think this was a good move. Anyone who lives in an urban environment and wants to drive a pickup is already demonstrating terrible, ostentatious taste and will probably _love_ the Cybertruck's garish look.
And anyone who lives in a rural area and actually needs a pickup truck will not buy a Tesla truck anyway due to lack of access to charging stations.
Politics, Chagos Islands, .io domains
According to the BBC [https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50511847] the UK was given six months by the UN to end the illegal occupation of the Chagos Islands. The UK has wilfully ignored this deadline. Families forcibly removed from the Islands still cannot return.
The .io TLD refers to the British Indian Ocean Territories, specifically these islands. If you're using a .io domain, you are paying to support this occupation. Please consider switching to a different TLD.

Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.
