    Does that count as an innings defeat for the Aussies? England scrape home by just the 242 runs.

    Guess the point I walk in from work and get to watch 4 overs.
  3. I think the issue is with the home hub. This is just one of several similar posts on BT. https://community.bt.com/t5/Home-setup-Wi-Fi-network/BT-HOME-HUB-5-Connection-problems-with-Facebook-snapchat-youtube/td-p/1767466/page/4 There's a couple of suggestions - 1) turn parental controls off 2) turn home hub off for 15-20 mins and see if it picks up a new IP address, 3) factory reset of router. Personally I'd do 1 and 2, then be contacting BT and getting them to send an engineer free of charge.
  4. Another thing to check is that if you turn off mobile data, do the apps then work from the WiFi. That should tell you if the problem is with the phone or the router
  5. Have you got a power / battery saver on? Sometimes these do weird things with data, if so turn it off and see if that makes any difference. Other than that, could be a router issue. What router do you have, And can you control the settings? If you can, try turning off auto IPv6 too.

    The future has to be one short-form game and Test cricket. At present the short form is T20, as it fits tv and spectator schedules better. I think the t20 could be expanded to a 25 or 30 over game (esp if you give a max time per ball). There has to be acceptance that they are 2 different games as such, and only a few can be good at both.

    Brexit Thread

    The chairman of the leave campaign, and someone who in the 80s shared Mrs Ts pro-EU economic policy, and was only ousted when the euro-sceptics in his party stopped him joining the ERM. The guy is a climate change denier, who is heavily backed by the oil industry. That shows you the credibility of the man.
  8. May be helpful if people understood what freedom of speech in the UK is. From wiki: British citizens have a negative right to freedom of expression under the common law. In 1998, the United Kingdom incorporated the European Convention, and the guarantee of freedom of expression it contains in Article 10, into its domestic law under the Human Rights Act. However, there is a broad sweep of exceptions including threatening or abusive words or behaviour intending or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress or cause a breach of the peace (which has been used to prohibit racist speech targeted at individuals),[2][3][4]sending another any article which is indecent or grossly offensive with an intent to cause distress or anxiety (which has been used to prohibit speech of a racist or anti-religious nature),[5][6][7] incitement,[8] incitement to racial hatred,[9] incitement to religious hatred, incitement to terrorism including encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications,[8][10][11] glorifying terrorism,[12][13] collection or possession of a document or record containing information likely to be of use to a terrorist,[14][15] treason including advocating for the abolition of the monarchy or compassing or imagining the death of the monarch,[16][17][18][19][20] sedition,[17] obscenity,[21] indecency including corruption of public morals and outraging public decency,[22] defamation,[23] prior restraint, restrictions on court reporting including names of victims and evidence and prejudicing or interfering with court proceedings,[24][25] prohibition of post-trial interviews with jurors,[25] time, manner, and place restrictions,[26] harassment, privileged communications, trade secrets, classified material, copyright, patents, military conduct, and limitations on commercial speech such as advertising. Therefore if Tommy is using behaviour that constitutes a breach of the peace, then his freedom of expression can be removed.
  9. Yes. I'm also aware it was a clip, in so that he had been live broadcasting for quite a while before that. I haven't seen that part, but maybe that's also related? He was also, not directly, filming people passing by, who may have been part of the court case. They could easily have been witnesses, jurors etc for all he knew. It matters not though, because if one of the conditions of his suspended sentence was not to film outside other court cases, then he's clearly doing that. I hope the number of idiots petitioning parliament demanding his release realise they are very lucky to live in a democracy.
  10. So he is live streaming outside court, talking about the contents of the trial going on inside, when he has been told not to because it could effect the trials. It may not be a 'breach of the peace', but it's clearly something he has been told not to do, and yet continued to do so. Sorry, no sympathy for him here.
  11. http://zelo-street.blogspot.co.uk/2018/05/tommy-robinson-and-reporting.html Think this pretty much sums things up, there are restrictions because they don't want the defendants being given a retrial.
  12. Yep, the guy was on bail, but still didn't think the law applied to him. He knew there was reporting restrictions surrounding the court case he was live streaming, but still went ahead. I'm not aware of the case itself, so can't comment on that.
  13. Personal budgeting should definitely be a bigger part of schooling.
  14. Your tax take would be a lot lower.
  15. If you had a flat rate of tax, you'd have no public services left.
