Steel, Abortions and Wife-jackings

Your weekend conversation covered:

UK steel crisis continues

Indian owned Tata steel company has decided to sell its loss making UK business. The company provides jobs for 15,000 people and has been operating in the UK since 2007 in Port Talbot, Rotherham, Corby and Shotton. But this week Tata’s owners have decided to sell up. Why? The company have said trading conditions for steel have “rapidly deteriorated” and that there is a global steel oversupply. As it stands China is the biggest exporter of steel in the world and the industry blames cheap Chinese imports for the collapse in steel prices.

If Tata steel is sold we’ll be giving the Chinese more power of the global steel supply which could see prices shoot up. If sold it’s not only jobs that will be at risk, the steel industry will shrink in the UK and will impact other associated sectors like steel processors, distributors, scrap metal dealers, metal traders and other metal product manufacturers. Many see this as a general manufacturing crisis which accounts for 10% of the UK economic output.  Finding a new buyer with all this going on will be hard, some people are calling for the company to be nationalised temporarily or permanently, meaning the government will buy and run Tata. Both the Welsh and UK government are “working tirelessly to look at all viable options to keep a strong British steel industry at the heart of our manufacturing base."

FBI don't even need Apple to get into your phone

Back in December 2015 Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik were shot dead after killing 14 people in San Bernardino, California. Since the incident the FBI’s been hassling Apple for access to Mr Farook’s Iphone, but Apple repeatedly said no, not gonna happen. This week the FBI said it doesn’t need Apple’s help after all, they won’t reveal how they managed to break the Iphone’s encryption but have said that they received help from a third party. The case was heading to court to decipher whether the government can compel companies like Apple to break the encryption on their customers devices when investigating suspected criminals and terrorists. What’s the big deal? Well it’s raised a lot of questions about the legality of governments and companies working together on investigations. Apple argued that helping the FBI would set a bad precedent and undermine every Iphone user’s privacy rights. The FBI countered that Apple was hampering their efforts to fight terrorism.

All in all a lot of questions have remained unanswered but it’s important to note that if the FBI can hack into an iphone, who else can?  

Best or most idiotic selfie ever?

Of course he was British. Ben Innes was on the unfortunate EgyptAir flight that was hijacked on Tuesday. In the face of adversity he decided in true millennial style to document his predicament by posing for a photo with the hijacker, all with a very cheesy grin. Innes said of the incident that he “wanted to stay cheerful in the face of adversity”. But the whole selfie-gate  has got people's chins wagging, should he have done it? Security experts say he risked his and his fellow passengers lives by posing for the picture and others are angry at making light of the hijacking when in fact we should be concerned about what this says of airport security. His mum and many other people are mad because technically it’s not a selfie. Despite dividing opinions a number of photoshop remakes have surfaced. It’s one to tell the grandkids or perhaps more suited to a lads weekend.

Donald Trump...at it again

Just when you thought the US election couldn’t get any crazier...Donald Trump just went and p***** off a whole lot of women. In true Trump style he motor-mouthed his way into hot water with comments over how pregnant women who have illegal abortions should face “some form of punishment”. Abortion was made legal in the United States more than 40 years ago, but it’s important to note abortion and a little thing called Planned Parenthood are unpopular with people in the pro-life movement who oppose abortion on moral or religious grounds. The Donald did a screeching U Turn on his comments just hours after making them stating that only those who performed the illegal abortions will be “held legally responsible, not the woman”. Oh Donald, you do realise that 50.4% of Americans are women.

The Haystack


We’re heading into our final weeks of crowdfunding for our documentary The Haystack, it’s all about the use of surveillance in the UK and whether we’re doing the right thing to avoid a Brussels/Paris attack. We’ve challenged MP’s, ex members of GCHQ and NSA, and surprisingly not got all the validation for these powers as you’d expect. We still need your support, so please fund us, tweet us and share the project with your friends - it really does make a difference!
