    Britain has broken its record for the longest continuous period without generating electricity from coal.

    National Grid said that the coal-free period lasted more than 90 hours before coming to an end on Monday afternoon.

    It is the longest period since the industrial revolution and breaks the previous record set in April 2018 of 76 hours and 10 minutes.

    The government plans to phase out Britain's last coal power plants by 2025 to cut greenhouse gases.

    you didn't actually read your own source this time either did you ?
    it's outlining problems regarding dosing and treatment regimes and how it's leading to developing resistance, you know, something that mirrors the problems we're having with antibiotics that are apparently not profitable to develop new versions of.

    nothing in there actually address the point i made in the first place either, but that's par the course for you.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    There were about 15 years of meetings on how to implement what is now a very successful program. Most of them at the Durban ICC. It had literally fuck all to do with patents.

    I see the weekend's Diane Abbott "scandal" appears to have misfired somewhat - cans of M&S mojito have been flying off the shelves.

    So the real scandal is that she wasn't swigging from a can of Tennant's?

    I'm pretty sure that Diane has never been to the town of Champaign in Illinois as well.

    I don't support this benefits policy, but your statements are equivalent to people saying "if you support socialism you support the Maduro diet".

    Nope, that's a false equivalence.

    Hardly, they're both excessively broad strokes.

    Those cases have little to do with austerity. It's much more akin to the hostile environment policies at HO. Bundle them together at your peril.

    They are part and parcel of austerity.

    No they're not. Austerity doesn't figure hugely at DWP. Working age benefit payments are still increasing in absolute terms and DWP has a blank cheque to deliver UC. Compared to local government (aka essential social care) being slashed by 60% and frontline policing numbers falling by something like 25,000 it's nothing.

    You could throw all the money at the world at the department and that wouldn't change the reality of its policies. They've been crafted based around a political decision that benefits claimants are unworthy subhumans who should be subject to scrutiny at all stages. Provision of benefits should be the exception, not the norm, regardless of a person's situation. That is not an austerity-driven departmental decision, it's a political one set at the top. I suspect when you're saying "austerity" you really mean "nasty right wing tories who think the poor and sick should all just die", but you should really try and say that.

    Of course that means you then don't get to call people in your own political party child murderers by saying they support austerity, but avoiding that is probably for the best as well.
