@downesy @duncanriley Deleted because it was faked. There’s plenty of real ways to critique politicians’ performance without fakery.

Exactly why the Telecommunications Act 1997 needs a hovercraft is not entirely clear to me.

via Janetter for Mac

So, “‘vessel’ means a vessel or boat of any description, and includes: (a) an air-cushion vehicle; and (b) any floating structure.”

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks to @MsLods I’m re-reading sections of the Telecommunications Act 1997. On a Sunday afternoon. I am pathetic.

@MsLods Yes. Given the Bill’s aim, that make sense. But you’re right, the thing is a hodge-podge. Laughably so, I’m tempted to say.

@MsLods @joshgnosis @kim_weatherall Why thank you. I took one very specific, narrow look the the legislation though. There’s more mess.
