'It's a f****** £5 note!' Furious Scot films row with a McDonald's manager in London who refuses to accept his Scottish money


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... money.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
A spokesman for McDonald's said: 'The note in question was passed through one of our machines responsible for checking genuine bank notes and failed on two occasions.
'This was the reason it was not accepted and has nothing to do with it being Scottish tender. The vast majority of McDonald's UK restaurants accept Scottish banknotes.'

Alexa, stop it! Amazon's personal assistant is causing havoc for people with a similar name
The Amazon Echo responds to requests when its personal assistant is called
But people with the name Alexa, Alex or Alexis say the system is a nightmare
Major middle class problem as the evil tax-dodgers at Amazon sneer at us, and consigns Alex's Alexas's and Alexis's to a lifetime of unwanted orders. Damn you Amazon.
Daily Mail Science section churn a WSJ article.
..
..and in paragraph 13
and paragraph twelvety sayeth... wrote:To combat the annoyance to Alexas, Amazon allows users to change the device's 'wake word' to 'Echo', 'Amazon', or, starting this week, 'computer'.
And there was much rejoicing

Planet Mailtard. Where judges are allowed to preside over trials involving family members, and there are no sentencing guidelines or appeal courts.

Classic dogwhistle:

Fury as traffic wardens slap £130 parking tickets on ambulances bringing cancer patients to one of London's biggest hospitals

Most of the commentators haven't read past the headline and assume this is eeevil traffic wardens preventing emergency ambulances from doing their jobs, despite the fact that you only have to read to paragraph 2 to read:
Private ambulances and cars are being given the penalties for leaving their vehicles near University College Hospital's Macmillan Cancer Centre in Bloomsbury while they change shifts or take in non-emergency patients.
Paragraph 19:
A Camden Council spokesman said: 'We have not issued Penalty Charge Notices to any ambulances on duty providing an emergency service.
'We have asked UCLH and their contractor, who provide non-emergency transport for the hospital, to discuss how they will ensure they maintain access and park non-emergency vehicles in permitted areas.'
Translates as: G4S didn't want to factor in the costs of parking in their contract arrangements, God forbid that anything should eat into their profits, so their vehicles should be allowed to minimise the time involved in delivering patients to the doors by obstructing everyone else on the roads, including emergency ambulances.

'Lion of London Bridge' who was stabbed eight times as he confronted terrorist attackers 'is put on anti-terror watch list after far-right extremists contacted him'
Para 19 wrote:However, in July 2017, footage from February of that year emerged of him spitting on a black photographer and ranting about 'foreign c****s who 'stink like s***t'.

He escaped jail after being handed a suspended sentence and a £50 fine.

Later, in September 2018, he was charged after being found with the powerful and potentially deadly painkiller fentanyl - the drug linked to the death of popstar Prince.
