Sabisky has resigned.
He has resigned and afforded the dignity he would deny everyone but himself and the Chosen Few?

"Vermin".

Sabisky is moaning its all out of context and has much brilliant work to offer. He links a think tank paper linking low birth rate to housing insecurity. Its not an offensive theory and offers some positive family friendly policies to encourage couples to have kids. But essentially he asking what do you do when you kick and shut out the foreigners?

He does seem a bit odd. Sure he's not all bad but the trad squares in the civil service can come out with positive family friendly stuff, at no extra expense or embarrassment.

Perhaps he forecast this one. Cummings isn’t go to stand for any bullying from the geopolitical muscle of Australia
Senior Australian MPs have cancelled a planned trip to the UK as tensions heighten over the role of Huawei in building Britain's 5G network.

Lawmakers from the intelligence and security committee had been expected to travel to the UK next month.

But the trip has been postponed amid reports of a diplomatic rift.

The decision follows a reported complaint from the UK over leaked details of a high-level meeting where Huawei was discussed.

Australia has banned the Chinese telecommunications giant from building its next-generation 5G mobile internet networks but Britain last month decided the company could continue to play a role in its system, despite pressure and warnings from Washington.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, in the meeting with Mr Raab, Anthony Byrne, the deputy chair of Australia's intelligence committee, said that allowing China to build the UK's 5G telecoms infrastructure was equivalent to letting Russia construct it.

"How would you feel if the Russians laid down infrastructure in your own networks? That's how we feel about Huawei," Mr Byrne was quoted as telling Mr Raab. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-51513886

Aside from the race shit.... what's his "geopolitical forecasting" record?
As far as I can tell, "geopolitical forecasting" is about the same as those "What if...?" pieces Dominic Sandbrook occasionally churns out, with a Cyberpunk slant. Basically he's a Shadowrun* ref with no players.

*Roleplaying game set in a dystopian near future.

As some columnist (Marina Hyde?) said, they all come across as the guy who thinks that lecturing you for 3 hours on how they're so brilliant and edgy for flirting with dodgy ideas is a sure way into your pants.

...then they go on social media begging for bird-pulling tips.




What the hell is a “qualified” “professional” “GjP Superforecaster”

What professional body does the awarding? By what measure?

What exactly is “Good Judgment Inc”?

Beginning to think this is a Cummings lonely hearts movement.
