"...the employee is a Level 20 Principal Security staffer, the highest technical level within Huawei". Huawei said employee acted on its own. Huawei thought everyone in this world was three year old kid easy to fool and cheat. How much time did L20 employee spend in coding last year? I guess nearly zero in 95% confidence level. And now he has passion in kernel development?

Let's be clear. The lack of focus on privacy and security, while a typical silicon valley flaw, was a choice of profit over security.

We should never ever forget the official USSR death toll for Chernobyl was 31. Not great, not terrible.

"We have 10 parties in Parliament. From the very left-wing to the really, really right-wing. And they all agree. There is nearly 100 percent consensus about this."

Security tip:

Many people recommend that you frequently update your software packages. However, sometimes updating packages isn't sufficient. If an update introduces or deprecates settings, then you may also need to change configuration files.

For instance, on Arch Linux, some package updates create a modified *.pacnew file. Look for such files (find / -name "*.pacnew" on your system, compare them with the existing file (diff -y conf conf.pacnew), and act accordingly.

It's not humane. People who suggest this idea know nothing about the power of COVID-19, has no respect for citizens in UK, and has no basic humanitarian thinking.

The powerful contagious ability of COVID-19 is very likely stronger than SARS.
As hospitalised patients become more and more, COVID-19 exhausts country's medical resources. It's like injuring a soldier damages more than just killing as it needs other people and resources to rescue.
Most patients in mild condition would be fine in the end. But to those in severe and critical condition, it's a war against death.
