    We hope Yarslav doesn't spend too much of his spare time on the site, however. He could wind up deaf and blind.

    How long before smart meters ration British energy use?
    Watch out California...  Pretty soon you might not have options when the proletariat mandates the installation of compliance regulators inside the A/C system.

    I feel sorry for the poor 25 stone guy who sits down for a dump, and gets sprayed with water by the mechanism thinking it's two people having sex.
    The new loos could include weight-sensitive floors to ensure only one user at a time.

    Not that unusual to have council houses and flats near better off areas. It's when you start banning children from a play area that you look like proper idiots (feel free to substitute a word I wouldnt be allowed to include) https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...nal-playground

    I think you are missing a point, you may have 0 musical skills due to lack of opportunity - as your parents didn't enroll you to the school or lacked the funds to do so.

    You may be a virtuoso waiting to be discovered.

    Equality is an interesting word, but stats are stats, if your school tells you you are a hairdresser or a nurse, you are not going to apply to become a doctor in 99.999%.

    the current world based on the economics of growth is unsustainable, growing inequality only makes things worse.

    Yeah it's a joke -- and the BBC told the story in their usual -- let's give half the story to keep the politicians happy -- approach. Not a word about how builders were forced to build economically and socially dysfunctional buildings to fulfil a political agenda. We should try apply this to other things in society -- posh £600 a head eatery in London not allowed to serve customers unless they also serve a few pimps each day from the local brothel. Music school for talented concert musicians not allowed to teach unless they also enrol me with no musical skills whatsoever.
