  2. Italy threatens Ryanair with flight ban over COVID-19 safety rules https://www.euronews.com/2020/08/05/italy-threatens-ryanair-with-flight-ban-over-covid-19-safety-rules Italy's civil aviation authority ENAC threatened to suspend Ryanair's permit to fly to the country citing non-compliance with COVID-19 safety rules ENAC said in a statement that "Ryanair systematically does not comply" with national regulations to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission when flying to and from Italian airports. "Not only is the obligation of distancing between passengers not observed, but also the conditions that allow derogation from this distancing are not met," it added. It warned that if the Irish airline persists in flouting the rules, it could require Ryanair to only fly planes at half capacity or worse, "suspend all air transport activities at national airports, requiring the carrier to re-route all passengers already in possession of tickets". Ryanair rejected ENAC's accusations as "factually incorrect" in a statement to Euronews. "Ryanair complies fully with the measures set out by the Italian government and our customers can rest assured that we are doing everything to reduce interaction on both our aircraft and at airports to protect the health of our passengers when flying Ryanair," it added. It argued that it encourages all passengers to check-in online and that specific boarding procedures have been put in place to "avoid unnecessary gathering of passengers both at boarding gates and onboard the aircraft". The optimism six months ago Didn't they understand yet that that at the end of the day, once you add all the little extra "benefits" they offer you, you end up having the same price that British Airways or any other national carrier in Europe would offer you But you have the great privilege of wasting 50 miles at least to get to the airports. Now I've heard they're about to conquer Heathrow airport too But with this pandemic these bottomless greedy people should be concerned about the real issue here. This thing will never go away if you're sole intent is to fill up your so called low cost flights and planes (which by the way are way outdated and consequently UNSAFE, as numerous repeated incidents all over Europe have demonstrated in recent years)
  3. The only mentally sane, competent, elegant yet simple and straightforward in UK politics of recent years I wonder why the other three nations have seen far less undesirable consequences in comparison to England, especially Scotland of course The national sanitary committee that the Johnson Cabinet had appointed was obviously for the most part made by corrupts, incompetents and professional liars. The herd immunity craziness started with them, like the choice to close down airports three weeks later than any other European country Even the former head of public health for the UK seven months ago had already serious doubts about their curriculum, why it wasn't possible to review their careers. Kind of like the unbreakable clouds of mystery surrounding the untouchable Cummings
  4. I know. Referendum for a republican Spain NOW!!!!!!!!!
  5. ok, so the king´s father has disappear, nobody knows where he is, after he has said to his son that he is going to leave the country to avoid creating problems to the monarchy (instead of paying the taxes as he should, he will be on holidays somewhere)
  6. poor people.the first time I watched it I thought the bombing was the fire...and suddenly hell happens
  7. Trump campaign sues Nevada over plan to mail ballots to all registered voters By Joe Sutton, CNN | Updated 1649 GMT (0049 HKT) August 5, 2020 (CNN)The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the state of Nevada over its plan to send absentee ballots to all active voters this November in a major expansion of mail-in voting in the battleground state. "The RNC has a vital interest in protecting the ability of Republican voters to cast, and Republican candidates to receive, effective votes in Nevada elections and elsewhere," the lawsuit, filed by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and the Nevada Republican Party, said. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread throughout the country, some states have looked to expand mail-in voting options ahead of November's election. President Donald Trump, however, has falsely claimed that expanded mail-in voting will lead to fraud in the election. As CNN has previously reported, voting-by-mail rarely results in fraud A spokeswoman for Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, whose office oversees elections in the state, declined to comment, citing ongoing litigation. The Democratic-controlled Nevada state legislature passed a sweeping election bill along party lines over the weekend, and Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed the legislation Monday afternoon. Sisolak said in a tweet on Monday, "I signed AB 4, which ensures protections for Nevadans to vote safely at the November election during the pandemic. During this global pandemic, I made a commitment that we'd do all we can to allow Nevadans to safely cast a ballot in the upcoming November election." https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/05/politics/trump-campaign-nevada-mail-in-ballots/index.html So it's "SAFE SECURE TRIED TRUE" for Florida to vote by mail but it's NOT safe secure tried true for Nevada? I'm confused
  8. Trump backtracks on mail-in voting, says it's OK to do in Florida The president's shift on mail-in voting comes as new data indicates the president’s assault on the practice may backfire on him come November. By CAITLIN OPRYSKO | 08/04/2020 07:05 PM EDT President Donald Trump on Tuesday reversed his opposition to mail-in voting and encouraged it — at least in one crucial battleground state — after railing against the practice for months amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” Trump wrote in a tweet. “Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail! #MAGA” The tweet represented a remarkable change in tune for the president, who has himself voted by mail but has aggressively pushed voters to head to the polls in person this fall despite fears of spreading the coronavirus. Trump has repeatedly leveled unsubstantiated claims that voting by mail would result in widespread voter fraud and that the practice would ultimately benefit Democrats. Despite Trump's insistence to the contrary, cases of election fraud in the U.S. are exceedingly rare, though experts acknowledge that there are some slightly higher fraud risks associated with mail-in balloting when proper security measures are not put in place. Just last week, Trump floated delaying November’s election until it was safer to do so in person, a suggestion he is not constitutionally empowered to enact. Trump suggested moving Election Day because an influx in mail-in voting, a practice many have advocated to avoid spreading the coronavirus at polling places, would lead to a “rigged” election that would amount to the “greatest election disaster in history.” On Monday the president claimed the right to issue an executive order pertaining to his concerns about mail-in voting, another legally dubious proposition, and pledged to sue Nevada over its plans to mail ballots to all registered voters. Asked about what authority the president might have to issue an executive order on mail-in voting, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to answer. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/08/04/trump-backtracks-mail-voting-florida-391373
  9. So it's safe for Florida to vote by mail now? what happen to the fraud/rigged election statement? Make up your fucking mind!
  10. They felt the explosion more than 200km away
  11. the explosion looked so scary and it was huge, I think I've only seen them that big in Hiroshima (on TV I wasn't really there)
  12. I just watched it on TV. So horrible and scary.
  13. I'm surprised nobody talks about it. This is absolutely tragic. At least 100 people dead (probably more) and thousands of wound... So many people missing. https://globalnews.ca/news/7251496/beirut-port-explosion-devastation-people-missing/ https://www.cnn.com/middleeast/live-news/lebanon-beirut-explosion-live-updates-dle-intl/index.html
  14. Last week
  15. He's making a fool out of himself. How embarrassing!
  16. I agree. I feel like the e-commerce, namely global e-commerce, is outpacing our global governments' ability to pass legislation aimed at ensuring a fair playing field. However, and this isn't me making excuses, but if I sell certain products online and ship said products from the state of California to France, and France has no law requiring a person or entity in California to pay local taxes on said product, how is that my fault? I'm complying with all laws, regulations and tax obligations. Should I go and pay French profit tax just because it's the moral / right thing to do? And instead of our governments doing anything about it, they're all fighting internally over stupid shit like... whether black athletes should kneel or not during the national anthem in protest of police brutality. Or whether or not it's wrong for local police forces to brutally murder civilians because they gave them a dirty look or looked suspiciously black.
  17. Trump will use emergency powers to remain in White House if he loses election, says House majority whip President has previously floated idea of delaying 2020 vote Matt Mathers @MattEm90 | 9 hours ago Donald Trump could use emergency powers to extend his term in the White House, a senior Democrat has said, as fears grow that the president may attempt to hold onto office should he lose November’s election. James Clyburn, the House majority whip, said he believes Trump has no intention of “peacefully” transferring power to presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who is well ahead in several major polls in the race for the Oval Office. “I don’t think he plans to leave the White House,” Mr Clyburn, the Democrat Rep. for South Carolina, told CNN on Sunday. “He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office.” Last week, Mr Trump floated the idea of delaying the upcoming election amid the coronavirus crisis, suggesting that the vote should be postponed “until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” In a message posted on his Twitter page, the president also claimed the 2020 election could fall foul to voter fraud, with millions of Americans set to cast their ballots via postal services due to the coronavirus. But experts have since cast doubt on those claims, citing previous research showing that voter fraud in the US is extremely rare. Two studies by Arizona State University in 2012 and 2016 found only 10 cases of voter impersonation fraud nationwide from 2000-2012. The president has also repeatedly claimed, falsely, that he would have beaten former rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 popular vote were it not for the “millions of people who voted illegally”. A subsequent analysis of 2016 voting data by The Washington Post found just four cases of voter fraud. Those four cases included three people who attempted to vote for Trump twice, according to the Post. Lawmakers across Capitol Hill – including many prominent Republicans – have slapped down the suggestion that the election could be delayed. Sen. Marco Rubio said “he [Trump] can suggest whatever he wants. The law is what it is.” Any move to delay the 2020 election would require an act of Congress — meaning both the Senate and the House of Representatives, where the Democrats have a majority, would need to sign off on it. On Sunday, advisers shut down Mr Trump’s suggestion that the vote could de be delayed and sought to portray a confident mood within the president’s re-election campaign team, despite dire polling readings. “We’re going to hold an election on 3 November and the president is going to win,” Mr Trump’s White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told CBS on Sunday. The president trails Mr Biden in a host of major polls, with data showing that he is behind in many of the states he must win to retain office. Mr Trump’s team continues to play down the significance of polling, pointing out that Hilary Clinton was well ahead at a similar point in the 2016 race. But it is the scale of Mr Biden’s lead over Mr Trump that has led experts to predict that Mr Biden will prevail in November contest. A number of polls – including those by Emerson, YouGov, CNBC and The Hill – give the Democrat politician a lead of seven points or more. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-2020-election-lose-emergency-powers-biden-polls-a9651041.html#comments
