“Cyber innovation.” Yeah, it’s a thing, and Lord Malcolm of Nimble sees it as part of his master plan.

@iPhoneBen Yeah that’s about the only rational response, I reckon.

@_midofo_ Exactly. Before that, photos were special, so we kept them in albums. I’m really curious about how this will pan out.

via TweetDeck in reply to _midofo_

@iPhoneBen Those new laws were already in the pipeline for this session of Parliament, it was just opportunistic plugging of them.

@BruceHore @NewtonMark That’s what started the conversation.

via TweetDeck in reply to BruceHore

@paulkidd But it’s gin not rum, so what’s an English word that sounds a bit like “mojito”?

via TweetDeck in reply to paulkidd

@paulkidd Hmmm. Well if I were being classy, I’d muddle some mint into the lime juice first, which would make it a kind of gin mojito…

via TweetDeck in reply to paulkidd

@tacticalmaid Well you can, but that part comes later.

via TweetDeck in reply to tacticalmaid

For those playing along at home: 60ml gin, juice of 1 lime, top with apple cider. Yes, it’s acceptable, and quite refreshing.

Soapy is correct when he says neither of these are “new”, in the sense that they were already under discussion.

The second new law is the “regime of post-sentence detention” to lock people up after they’ve already served their sentence for a crime.
