Flashback: NHS trusts are still using unsupported Windows XP PCs

Motherboard filed Freedom of Information requests with more than 70 NHS hospital trusts asking how many Windows XP machines they use. 48 replied within the allotted time, and a whopping 42 of them admitted that they still use the operating system that reached end-of-life status in April 2014.

Some of the culprits include East Sussex Healthcare, which has 413 Windows XP machines, Sheffield's Children's hospital with 1,290, and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust in London with an insane 10,800 Windows XP-powered PCs.

23 replied to Motherboard's quizzing about whether they have an extended support agreement in place and, unsurprisingly, the majority said that they do not.

This delay in upgrading could land some NHS trusts in trouble.

NHS services in England and Scotland hit by global cyber-attack

Last December, it emerged that 90% of NHS computers still run on Windows XP, two and a half years after Microsoft stopped supporting the operating system.


Dr Christopher Richardson, the head of the cybersecurity unit at Bournemouth University, said the process of recovering the NHS’s IT systems would involve a painful and longwinded “deep strip” of affected computers.

“You go down to the basic machine, you take everything off it, you reconfigure it and then you build it back up again,” he said. “If you’re talking national health, you’re talking a lot of machines on a single site and you’ve got to get them all because these nasty pieces of malware, they float around, so they only have to remain on one machine and when you reboot it will deliver the same thing again.”

NHS hospitals across England hit by large-scale cyber-attack

Hospitals across England have been hit by a large-scale cyber-attack, the NHS has confirmed, which has locked staff out of their computers and forced many trusts to divert emergency patients.

The IT systems of NHS sites across the country appear to have been simultaneously hit, with a pop-up message demanding a ransom in exchange for access to the PCs. NHS England said it was aware of the problem and would release more details soon.

According to reports, affected hospitals include those run by East and North Hertfordshire NHS trust, Barts Health in London, Essex Partnership university NHS trusts, the university hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS foundation trust, Southport and Ormskirk hospital NHS trust and Blackpool teaching hospital NHS foundation trust.

Indigenous Australians who were exposed to extreme levels of radiation by British nuclear tests will finally have their healthcare costs covered by their government.

From 1952 to 1963, Britain tested atomic weapons at Maralinga and Emu Fields in South Australia and around Western Australia’s Monte Bello Islands, with Australia’s permission. The combined force of the weapons set off at Maralinga was double that of the bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in World War Two.

Cancer Drugs Fund found to be “huge waste of money” and a total fraud

England’s Cancer Drugs Fund was launched in 2010 and was up and running through 2016. The fund’s aim was to help patients gain access to cancer medications that were not covered by the National Health Service (NHS). After spending over a billion British pounds, it seems that the fund was not very helpful to cancer patients in the U.K., after all.

The Cancer Drugs Fund cost citizens £1.27 billion, which is equivalent to $1,64 billion in U.S. dollars. Conservatives in England promised that the fund would help pay for cancer treatments, but it seems that those treatments provided very little benefit to patients.

House price CRASH: Top London home values plunge lower in April

Values of the capital's high-end homes tumbled by 6.6 per cent in the year to April - the near fastest plunge since the financial crisis - showed research by Knight Frank.

Suburbs favoured by the some of the world's richest people, such as Kensington and Chelsea have seen values tumble by more than 10 per cent from their post-recession peaks.

Overall, the number of exchanges in so-called prime central London sank by 11 per cent year on year in the first quarter of 2017, said Knight Frank.

The lettings market has also taken a hit, falling another 0.2 per cent in April, meaning rents are down 0.7 per cent in the three months to April and 4.7 per cent year on year.

Millions of energy smart meters 'may need to be replaced over IT blunder'

Some eight million households have already received the first generation smart meter, which is supposed to send readings directly to the energy company as well as tell the homeowner how much power they are using in pounds and pence.

The £11bn scheme will see smart meters being rolled out as standard by 2020, and companies that fail to comply will face hefty fines.

But now energy companies have admitted some of the new meters are incompatible with the computer network that connects them to the devices, and "go dumb" when a consumer switches supplier for a better deal.

It means consumers would still need to rely on estimated bills just as before, rendering the new devices somewhat pointless.

To mitigate the cost, they floated the idea of charging Britain for access to the single market.

Farewell to London pubs? They're closing at an unprecedented rate

On a recent weekday just before noon, Michael and Linda Norris turned on the lights and unlocked the front door to their London pub, just as they've been doing for the past 34 years.

Across the street from a leafy park in the borough of Southwark, the China Hall Public House attracts rugby players after weeknight matches. Shortly after opening on this day, they welcomed a familiar face, Patrick Ford, a patron turned longtime friend.

"Obviously, all things take their progression, but this just seems to be unfair," Ford remarked.

Since the 1980s, Ford has stopped by for countless chats, but all the talk here has recently turned to the China Hall's impending closure.

"They want to bring the lease to a close and basically just want to get rid of us," Michael Norris explained.

A Victory for Theresa May Will See Britain Dragged Further Towards War with Russia

The demonisation of Putin and Russia

Since Russia intervened at the behest of the Syrian government, the Syrian conflict has swung away from the opposition (terrorist) groups which the US has been supporting to defeat Assad, an ‘unspoken truth’ in the mainstream media (see ‘The Dirty War on Syria‘). However, the US seems increasingly desperate to intensify its military intervention to bring its plan for Syria and the wider Middle East region to fruition. This does not just mean attacking Syrian government forces. It also involves putting pressure on Russia to step aside.

Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin was told by the UK ambassador to the United Nations Matthew Rycroft that he is on the “wrong side of history” because of his support for the “barbaric” Syrian leader Bashar Assad. Rycroft added that supporting the Assad regime would result in “shame” and “humiliation” for Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"US and NATO being civilising forces in a barbaric world?!?"

What British "Ministry of Truth" intern cobbled THAT bit of codswallop together for Rycroft, I have to wonder?!?

The truth is the polar opposite of this statement, and all one has to do at look, objectively at the US-government generated carnage in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Syria to understand this.

the hard reality here is, US and UK are utterly NOT on the right side of history, to look at attempting to regime change Damascus; and I shudder to think of just what Russia will do, when that attempt is made, because Russia is in Syria at the behest of the Syrian government.

Leaked: The UK's secret blueprint with telcos for mass spying on internet, phones – and backdoors

The UK government has secretly drawn up more details of its new bulk surveillance powers – awarding itself the ability to monitor Brits' live communications, and insert encryption backdoors by the backdoor.

In its draft technical capability notices paper [PDF], all communications companies – including phone networks and ISPs – will be obliged to provide real-time access to the full content of any named individual within one working day, as well as any "secondary data" relating to that person.

That includes encrypted content – which means that UK organizations will not be allowed to introduce true end-to-end encryption of their users' data but will be legally required to introduce a backdoor to their systems so the authorities can read any and all communications.

The UK's long-gestating Digital Economy Act has finally gone into force. The law is mainly interested in porn and pirates -- two issues most of the UK public is far less interested in having subjected to intrusive regulation.

But just keeping an eye on who is or isn't availing themselves of porn/torrents isn't the only intrusive aspect of the Act. As Joseph Cox of Motherboard points out, an amendment to the law grants some pretty scary new powers to UK law enforcement, allowing them to kill citizens' means of communication.

[L]aw enforcement agencies can remotely disable or restrict a mobile phone if it is suspected of being used for drug dealing or related to it, and in some cases regardless of whether a crime has actually been committed, according to legal commentators.

Theresa May declares war on Brussels, urging: 'Let me fight for Britain'

Theresa May has launched an extraordinary attack on Brussels, accusing European Union politicians and officials of seeking to disrupt the general election and willing Brexit to fail in a combative address delivered from Downing Street.

Speaking after returning from Buckingham Palace to inform the Queen that parliament had been dissolved for the 8 June poll, May delivered an unexpectedly antagonistic speech outside No 10, urging voters to “give me your backing to fight for Britain”.

She took aim at threats and leaks from Brussels days after a German newspaper had reported about the supposedly strained atmosphere at a Downing Street dinner last Wednesday with European commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

“In the last few days, we have seen just how tough these talks are likely to be,” she said, rejecting the idea that her guests had found her ill-prepared and unrealistic. “Britain’s negotiating position in Europe has been misrepresented in the continental press.

The Tories’ Election Campaign: Empty Rhetoric Repeated Ad Nauseam

Just in case you missed it, “strong and stable leadership” repeated ad nauseam is the campaign mantra of the Tory party for the incoming General Election. So just before our brains cease to function by the repetition of this empty slogan, let us unpick this mantra: strength in itself is not always good. One could be strong and wrong. Strength could be used by a bully to intimidate, and oppress the weak and vulnerable. As for “stable leadership”, well, the most stable leadership is a dictatorship. Do we want that? We, the electorate, should engage our brains, before we get swept away by these advertising tricks, that are coined to numb our senses, and overwhelm our intellect by shear repetition.

'Sorry to hear you're standing down, sir.' 'Well I can't stand up much longer!' Prince Philip, 95, seals his retirement in typically humorous style as he prepares to end 70 years of royal duties

Prince Philip has taken a typically irreverent view on his own retirement today telling one man who said he was sorry he was standing down: 'Well I can't stand up for much longer'.

The Duke of Edinburgh made himself and a crowd of guests roar with laughter while with the Queen at an Order of Merit service at St James's Palace just an hour after announcing he will end his public royal duties at the age of 95.
Mathematician Sir Michael Atiyah was left in hysterics after stopping him to say: 'I'm sorry to hear you're standing down', to which the Duke replied: 'Well I can't stand up much longer'.

His well-earned retirement comes after 70 years dedicated service to Britain and Her Majesty, who has given him her 'full support' to step down.

Is Britain already a Socialist Country? – It is in an “Economic Death Spiral” from which there is Little Hope of Reprieve

Recent figures show that in the UK, more than 50% of households receive more in State benefits than the pay in direct taxes (income tax, VAT etc…) to the Government. The Centre for Policy Studies says that “the average household paid £13,402 in taxes in 2013/14. Yet it received £12,939 in cash benefits and benefits in-kind” When this is added to education and health benefits shows that the majority of British people are a drain on the public purse.

Speaking outside Downing Street on Wednesday, after notifying the Queen of the dissolution of Parliament, Theresa May took a tough stance towards EU Oligarchs, saying Brussels eurocrats do not want the Brexit talks to succeed and for Britain to “prosper” after Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May accused European officials of trying to influence the result of Britain’s general election with threats of harsh Brexit terms.

The UK PM suggested that Britain’s negotiating position has been misrepresented in the European press.

“In the past few days we have seen just how tough these talks are likely to be. Britain’s negotiating position in Europe has been misrepresented in the continental press.

“The European commission’s negotiating stance has hardened. Threats against Britain have been issued by European politicians and officials. All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election that will take place on June 8.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The EU, at this point, is behaving like a wounded animal; and the most dangerous animals are those which have been wounded.

And even though the wounds are economic in nature, the bureaucrats in Brussels understand that they are fighting for their professional lives.

London Property Bubble Vulnerable To Crash

UK’s Land Registry data for three London boroughs shows transaction volumes in London — the number of houses being bought and sold — are at an all-time low. Back in December asking prices in London dropped 4.3% in December with inner London down 6%, more exclusive areas dropped by as much as 10%.

The slump continued into the first quarter this year, a survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors found that more agents than not reported price drops in March. London is now one of the five-slowest growing cities in the UK.

London property has for some time had many of the signs of a bubble. However, it is always very hard to pinpoint when a bubble might burst. We are certainly seeing signs that the overheated market is beginning to cool. Of course, all ‘good’ things must come to an end, but what is driving this particular scenario?

Scandal of £15M taxpayers’ cash WASTED in anti-smoking classes in CORRUPT countries

A FRESH foreign aid row erupted yesterday after it emerged that Britain was paying for anti-smoking classes in some of world’s most corrupt countries.

In a move branded “astonishing”, the Department of Health is giving £15million in taxpayers’ money to a host of regimes with appalling human rights records. Critics said taxpayers’ cash was being “handed out like confetti” at a time the NHS faced the worst funding crisis in its history.

The money will go to countries where political unrest is rife as part of the foreign aid budget.

Those set to receive the antismoking cash include Cambodia, Chad, Colombia, Egypt, El Salvador, Georgia, Jordan, Madagascar, Myanmar [Burma], Nepal, Samoa, Sierra Leone, Cabo Verde, Sri Lanka and Zambia.

A retired general told the Times: “We are in a much worse state than Fallon acknowledges. It’s a definite emperor without clothes moment. There’s is a lot of shallowness in our armed forces.”

Last month, it was revealed that the armed forces faced a funding gap of at least £10billion, however some experts have put the shortfall as big as £20billion.

The worsening value of the pound against the dollar has forced the price of American military gear to increase, which in turn has led to a hollowing out of the military.

What is Real Conservatism, and why is it so important?

Up to two fifths of Americans describe themselves as Conservatives, and in England that number is roughly the same. The beliefs and principles that relate both the US and UK Conservatives are generally similar, yet any individual definition of what Conservatism means to each person who identifies as such would probably differ greatly. And of course, those who are not Conservative have a very different view as to what principles (if any) underlie its present incarnation.

Senior EU officials today revealed that member states were “unanimous” on the fact that the UK must settle up on its financial commitments before trade talks can start and appeared to increase the potential scope of the final amount to be paid.

And they hinted that the “global amount” that the UK will be billed will now include “political” commitments the UK has signed up to, which includes programmes like the Turkey refugee package which could run for years or even decades to come.

Boris Johnson Says It Would Be Hard To Say No To War In Syria If U.S. Asks

By Brandon Turbeville

Is there something about terribly bad hair that causes national leaders to be stricken with an incurable case of war psychosis? Is there some crinicultural reason for the lack of all sanity and even diplomatic décor when it comes to the possibility of launching a new military conflict or inflaming one already ongoing? Personally, I miss the days when world leaders would at least pretend that war was always the last choice before launching missiles, airstrikes and ground invasions that had been in the works years prior. But, alas, our current times are not so big on subtlety...

No wonder they wanted us to stay! UK leaving EU without deal 'would cost Germany BILLIONS'

BRITAIN leaving the EU without a deal would end up costing the remaining eurozone countries more, especially Germany, a Bundestag committee has been warned.

If Britain were to leave the bloc without a deal, then it would no longer be obliged to transfer any money to Brussels from April 2019 onwards and would not need to contribute to the future pension costs of EU officials, which stands at a sizeable £54.1billion (€63.8bn)

Dr Peter Becker, 58, at Germany’s Institute for International Policy and Security, told the committee: "The EU would then have no legal means to demand outstanding payments from London.”
