13115 Balearic Islands plead for alcohol ban on flights

Authorities in the Balearic Islands, home to the party resorts of Ibiza and Mallorca, have asked Spain and the European Union to ban alcohol on flights and in airports as they battle “anti-social tourism”.

The plea comes after recent, much-publicised reports of drunken brawls or alcohol-fuelled sexual antics on flights to an archipelago that attracts millions of visitors every year – with many flocking to resorts notorious for their sex and booze excess.

Magaluf isn't Mallorca anymore than Slaganas is the whole of the Greek Islands. There are some really lovely and quiet areas of Mallorca. But if you get a plane to the island you'll almost certainly share it with some horrorbags en route to Magaluf - the relief when they go west at the airport and you go east is delicious.

That is certainly true (I'm >>13119 lad). If you go to places like Cala Rajada or Alcudia, things are much more laid back there. The whole east of the island is frequented more by young couples with or without children. We went there in a hire car for a day. It did make me breathe a sigh of relief that the island of Mallorca wasn't invariably a complete shithole. Also, you've got some of the most stunning beaches of the entire Mediterranean there.



Mine was still the most visually pleasing of the lot. Also, she was a proper wrongun in bed. But when I suggested we keep in touch, she said she never did with one night stands, as a rule.

She could have been a bigger germ farm than that monkey in Outbreak. But I had myself tested for various things about a year later, and it came back all clean.

(as a damning indictment of all that is wrong with the NHS, when I got tested for HIV, the nurse at the doctor's office said to me, in front of half a dozen other patients, "Mr Anon, your HIV antibody test kit is ready for you now in room three")

Fucking nail on the head lad.

I was a wee teenlad when I went to the Balearics and Canaries, both of those times I was too young to drink and I was with my parents most of the time. But fuck me, anywhere the Brits and the Irish go, they are turned into the most torrid of shitholes one can imagine. All those "apart-hotel" complexes are simply containment camps to separate them from the rest of the Europeans.

My parent's logic to stay at these places was that the accommodation can be cheap so we can spend more money driving around and seeing interesting shit outside of these internment camps, and I must say it makes perfect sense now.

I can't wait for Brexit to happen, Spain should shake those expats and tourists off like fleas off a dogs back.

They need our money though. Tourism is one of the few sectors of the Spanish economy that are still doing well. They've still got record unemployment there, with a whole generation of 20somethings who have never held a suitable permanent job after their vocational training or higher education and still live with their parents.

If they actually send British expats, and chav tourists packing, they will really only be cutting their own flesh. Beggars can only be choosers to a certain extent.

I went to a barn party at a farm estate once. It was a big party with probably close to 2,000 people, music and loads of booze. Anyway, there was a manure pit on the estate, which had been carefully cordoned off with a construction fence and a tarp cover over the fence. But somehow, some shitfaced git managed to climb over the fence late at night, and then plunged into the manure pit. They found him at 4 am, fast asleep on the edge of the manure pit, covered in shit.

Also reminds me of that time I was at a friend's little garden party; we were sat in his parents' summerhouse, and at some point I excused myself to go around the corner to have a wee. It was pitch dark outside, and I mistook a goldfish pond for a flower bed, and was going to walk straight across it to wee against a tree. Next thing I knew, I was standing in water up to my waist. Having suffered abounding laughter from my mates, I then took off my wet jeans and decided to pedal home on my bicycle half a mile to get some dry clothes. All the while thinking that I probably looked like a nonce, wearing nothing but a T-shirt and my white undies on a bicycle late at night, and my biggest fear was that I would be stopped by police. Luckily, nothing happened.

13044 UAE email leak

>The emails provided so far to the The Intercept show a growing relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the pro-Israel, decepticonservative think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).

>On the surface, the alliance should be surprising, as the UAE does not even recognize Israel. But the two countries have worked together in the past against their common adversary, Iran.

>On March 10 of this year, FDD CEO Mark Dubowitz authored an email to both the UAE’s ambassador to the United States, Yousef Al-Otaiba, and FDD Senior Counselor John Hannah — a former deputy national security adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney — with the subject line “Target list of companies investing in Iran, UAE and Saudi Arabia.”

>“Dear, Mr. Ambassador,” Dubowitz wrote. “The attached memorandum details companies listed by country which are doing business with Iran and also have business with the UAE and Saudi Arabia. This is a target list for putting these companies to a choice, as we have discussed.”

>The hacked emails demonstrate a remarkable level of backchannel cooperation between a leading decepticonservative think tank — FDD is funded by pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson, an ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is one of the largest political donors in the United States — and a Gulf monarchy.

>Israel and the Gulf monarchies have grown closer in recent years, as both sides fear that Iran is moving closer to normalization with the West and will therefore increase its own influence and power in the region. But admissions of the alliance between the two are still rare in public.

I reckon the Sauds are mindful of the accusations flying around about ISIS funding coming from their country, and so they're trying to make Qatar into a scapegoat.

Perhaps there's some connection to OPEC and the oil production cap, but that's straying a little closer to tinfoil hat territory.

Not really. There's no real benefit to be gained from holding on to gold, and it was unarguably a good choice to diversify national assets at the time. The fact that it would have been worth more at a later date says nothing much.

I could go on a long thing but for simplicities sake I'm just going to say PFI was shit and the "will he-won't he?" of the election in 2008 was sheer political ineptitude.

Plus, I mean, the London Underground Public-Private Partnership. Really, I'd rather not de-rail (oops?) the thread into an argument over the 1997-2010 government. I was just playing devil's advocate to stretch out the idea that it's right to say elements of both predictions came true. Every government has instances of incompetence (and thus, can be argued to be incompetent if you so wish.) so it's a pretty easy thing to do.

Nonsense. The EAW was pretty much the only thing guaranteeing that wouldn't happen. The UK was bound by international law to turn him over to Sweden. They couldn't let him walk, and they couldn't send him anywhere else. Sweden unequivocably had first dibs. Anything else would have caused an international incident.

I should have said that my degree isn't in European law. As part of my business degree, at some point I developed a tentative interest in European law, so I attended a lecture or two on it towards the end of uni.

The professor's point was much more to shed light on how a country started over, after a period of history as disruptive to its own self as the Third Reich.

We also talked about the new post-Apartheid South African constitution, btw. Again very interestingly, the post-war German constitution served as a blueprint for a number of aspects of the new South African constitution. You even had law professors from German universities helping in the process of writing it. Our professor said he was friends with a law professor from Hamburg (?), who was part of a delegation of seasoned constitutional law experts visiting South Africa numerous times in the early to mid 1990s.

I'm coming to like the idea that we've just replaced religion with a more postmodern sort of civic-religion. Where instead of not believing in the lies you're generally told by society, we come over more to being smugly sceptical of things even as we proceed with the rituals anyway.

I'm not actually clever enough to reiterate it properly, but I still like it as a basic idea, and I don't think I'd be too wide of the mark to say it's essentially down to Christianity outliving it's usefulness to modern capitalism and getting the bullet.

Something not mentioned in this thread that I've seen elsewhere is that blasphemy is in the Irish constitution. There's a sort of meme going around which says that the 2009 law was introduced deliberately to be unenforceable, because to remove blasphemy from the constitution would take a referendum.

This is true enough, but it makes the law sound counter-intuitively brilliant, when it's not. The law needs to go, and the referendum needs to happen.

First, it doesn't matter if the law is enforceable or not if people are ignorant of its purpose and choose to self-censor. This is exactly what happened with the Scientology documentaries Going Clear and My Scientology Movie. Neither could find a distributor in Ireland because of fear of prosecution[1].

Second, under the government's 'Programme for Partnership', they pledge towards the end, section 8B on Constitutional Reform,

"We propose that a number of referenda be held. These include referenda on:
* The question of amending Article 40.6.1(i) of the Constitution to remove the offence
of blasphemy" [2]

This should be morally binding, more enforceable than a manifesto pledge. Obviously politicians lie and don't always fulfil every promise, but the current govt aren't supposed to be avoiding a referendum, as some people think.

These sorts of laws are tools. You'll sometimes hear them euphemistically referred to as "ways and means". On the one hand, they're there to provide a way of dealing with someone you might not otherwise be able to deal with. For example, if someone's getting a bit rough and a police officer happens to hear them swear, expect that person to be booked for s.5 Public Order Act, left in the cells to cool down and released without charge in the morning. Of course, since the law is there, the temptation exists to use it, as routinely happens in the case of s.5 across the country, where eventually either the CPS drops the charges before trial, or the court adds yet another case to the long list of decisions stating that, due to the nature of the job, front line officers have no business being alarmed or distressed by a bit of language.

Some of our older users may remember the time Iceland was briefly declared a terrorist state in order to freeze assets for a completely unrelated reason. It's the same problem that afflicts things like the Investigatory Powers Act, and should really have been at the heart of the Brexit legislation - once the powers exist, there's no effective check on how they can be used.

It is surely beyond doubt that they are. There are four Commissions, and the fact that they are supposedly independent doesn't matter. Like many other "independent" bodies, their terms of reference are set by the government, and just like the NHS Pay Review Body, the government have supplied terms favourable to themselves.

That, and I am not sure that these commissions will ever be truly "independent". It starts with the question of who gets to pick the members of such a commission. And people who will then end up serving as part of a political commission like that, if they are seasoned political experts, will themselves have had some sort of personal political history, and they will have, or have had some manner of ties to a political party. And thus, they will never be able to make truly independent decisions. It's all smoke and mirrors.

This isn't the US. Violations of electoral law and funding rules are rarely punished there because the FEC has three reds and three blues and they end up deadlocked every time.

We're great respecters of the rule of law in this country. Even party loyalists can be persuaded to do the right thing. The best way of locking that down over here is to lay down terms of reference that prevent it. It didn't matter how much the PRB members love the NHS, their terms of reference effectively amount to "justify 1%". It doesn't matter if the members of the Boundary Commissions can see that basing their constituencies on the rolls rather than the census is unfair, their terms of reference are to use the rolls and they'll do as they're told or risk exceeding their remit (and never working in such a position again).

I'd rather pretend neither existed frankly. I've no time for echo chambers whether left or right, they're hugboxes for people too emotionally fragile to read a paragraph of anything they disagree with.

12487 US Bombs Assad


>The US military has launched a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield in response to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons this week, marking the first time the US has become a direct combatant against the Syrian regime.

>Though Trump lacked congressional and international authorisation for the strike, prominent US politicians immediately gave him political cover.

>For years, defense analysts have warned the US against attacking Assad without a plan for what it seeks to achieve or what a post-Assad Syria might look like.

And the Russian's are none too happy.


>Under the memorandum, signed after Russia launched an air campaign in Syria in September 2015, Russia and the US had exchanged information about their flights to avoid incidents in the crowded skies over Syria — where Russia has several dozen warplanes and batteries of air-defense missiles.

As opposed to figuratively worse than Hitler?

You don't see why such a vague value judgement statement is weirder to qualify with literally/figuratively, as opposed to saying "literally is Hitler" or something along those lines?

I'm getting really fed up of Syria to be honest.

It's getting like that shit radio station your boring normal colleagues put on at work. The one where you've already heard Human by Rag'n'Bone Man once before morning coffee, and then twice more by your afternoon fag break.

It's just all starting to sound the same.

Couple of big drops via The Shadow Brokers & Wikileaks:

>Today's revelation exposes hacking attacks on EU states, as well as Latin America, Russia, China, Japan and South East Asia. Among the contents one also finds the hacking configuration for China Mobile, the world's largest mobile telecom company by number of subscribers.


>WikiLeaks just dropped the CIA’s secret how-to for infecting Windows

Naturally the timing is entirely coincidental. Someone just happened to finish prepping this batch for release this week.
