That's not to say that the EU isn't flawed - though I believe we would be far better off in, and we've absolutely 'thrown the baby out with the bathwater' here.

The whole point of the single market was to enable frictionless trade, we really can't have our cake and eat it too.

Well beyond satire.

The post-Brexit mess isn't caused by "the crippling bureaucracy of the EU"; it's that of *being outside* the EU.

The idea of staying in the single market or EEA was slammed as "Brexit in name only", so why are we surprised when we don't keep the benefits?

It's been almost a year but I still hate the term "social distancing"

It's physical distancing we need, and social closeness more than ever!

Random cursed thought: if one had a laptop with a smart card reader (say, an old Elitebook or something), would it be possible to use EMV payment cards as a 2nd factor authentication device w/ PIN? Is there something they lack vs typical PC smart cards that make them unsuitable?

Looking at buying an e-reader for textbooks and technical books mainly (decent web browser a big plus, but not 100% essential) to replace an iPad - hopefully easier on my eyesight and to avoid distractions.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

they do not give a fuck about your education, and they do not give a fuck about you. to them, you are a cog in the machine that can be sacrificed with the stroke of a pen so that their mates’ share prices keep going up.

we cannot, and will not, accept this, not now, not ever.

it’s no surprise that they continue to sacrifice us all to spread & catch the virus, and that they threatened legal action against any school who embarrassed them by daring to buck their anti-science agenda in suggesting the common sense move of remote tuition.

Show thread

under the past 10 years of conservative government, they’ve scrapped EMA payments for English post 16 students, they’ve tripled university tuition fees, they’ve slashed education funding, they’ve plunged over 600,000 children into relative poverty

honestly have half a mind that we should all just strike for the 2021 and where safe, take to the streets.
