Ya, I guess the US isn't the only country that treats illegal immigrants differently. Can you accuse the UK government of separating families? Kids in cages?
Yeah.

When Brexit is finalised, the concentration camps for Europeans can start to be filled...

Corporations can use cameras and biometrics to identify individuals and use their identities to tune in their marketing campaigns.

If you dispense with 'freedoms', then governments could do the same.

Well, at least that's a start.

Where the fuck to go from here though...?

Such a shit show. I wish I knew what was 'right'. All I can do is a best estimate of what might be more popular among a given group.

What fixes it? Fast-tracking citizenship? Heavy-handed enforcement? Something different?

Daily Mail eclipses the Sun to become UK's top-selling paper
Editor Geordie Greig hails ‘historic moment’ after ending tabloid’s 42-year reign

After 42 years as the UK’s best-selling newspaper, the Sun has lost its title to the Daily Mail.

The Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid had been the nation’s most popular newspaper since 1978, spawning such memorable splash headlines as “Freddie Starr ate my hamster”, “Gotcha!”, and “It’s The Sun Wot Won It” – the 1992 front page taking credit for the Conservatives’ unexpected general election victory.

The Daily Mail, which had been steadily closing the sales gap in recent years, overtook the Sun in May, according to the latest official figures.

The Daily Mail sold 980,000 copies a day on average last month, and the Mail on Sunday sold 878,000 a week, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations figures published on Friday.
Nuff said.

Once again:


'We've bought the wrong satellites': UK tech gamble baffles experts
Bid for 20% of OneWeb to replace Galileo after Brexit ‘looks like nationalism trumping industrial policy’


The UK government’s plan to invest hundreds of millions of pounds in a satellite broadband company has been described as “nonsensical” by experts, who say the company doesn’t even make the right type of satellite the country needs after Brexit.

The investment in OneWeb, first reported on Thursday night, is intended to mitigate against the UK losing access to the EU’s Galileo satellite navigation system.

But OneWeb – in which the UK will own a 20% stake following the investment – currently operates a completely different type of satellite network from that typically used to run such navigation systems.

All they need to do is retro-fit some wifi cards and they'll be good to go.

From The Sun -- :spit: An hour-long interview with Ozzie pundit Rita Panahi, but the first two-minutes tells you everything you need to know.

The comments are very informative too.
