I just read another story discovered through https://news.ycombinator.com/ and whilst it has a quite sizeable number of UK based stories usually due to the BBC news it did make me wonder if there's any more dedicated UK and or EU covering sites available?

I wonder how the public gets to be part of these talks considering the public - electorate - are surely the biggest interested party as a single group.

I'm lost for words for how horrendously obnoxious this seems. Can anyone seriously think this is a good thing for consumers? It just appears like a cartel trying to kill their biggest (only?) rival.

So crops humanity has farmed thousands of years in gradual adaptation and sync with the surroundings are according to a government minister less safe than GM plants modified by scientists with a limited knowledge of the impact they are making and then tested for safety in limited field trials. By scientists often funded by companies with commercial interest hence compromised interests.

The minister leaves me with the impression he is expecting to make money and his pension out of it or is too stupid for the job. The only sane way to secure the nations food supply is to manage immigration to reduce the national population over decades to a point we can if necessary feed ourselves.

Liked this having received abuse from cars almost every time I've ridden solely on roads. Funny how being in an expensive box seems to make people think they have greater importance than people who aren't. The penultimate paragraph mentions obeying the rules and the way car drivers always have a go at cyclists as ignoring the rules - it just made me think of the St Ives crossing where almost every time I'm there cars come through the lights on red. #cycling

I'll take a closer look at this as a possible next phone.

But I do like having a real keyboard on my N900.

I was looking to see if it's possible to get a bicycle made (not just "designed") in Britain.
