Police to interview man after digger smashed into new hotel | UK news | The Guardian

Quote:
a digger was used to destroy the reception area of a new Travelodge hotel in Liverpool on the day building was due to be completed.

Footage shared on social media showed the vehicle repeatedly smashing into the hotel in Liverpool Innovation Park.

“The handover was today, everything completed, we’d put the last tile in, cleaned up and made sure everything was perfect,” said Samuel White, a ceiling fixer. “Then some idiot in a mini digger decided to drive through the middle of the building.” White said the destruction went on for “a good 20 or 30 minutes”.
The video does indeed contain some strong language but it's in Liverpool so you won't understand it.

It's believed to be a dispute over unpaid wages of £600.

It’s like, how much more Canadian could this be? And the answer is none. None more Canadian.

Excellent article. It strikes me that :ff: in its offbeat, offkey way can be part of the solution ...

From the link“It feels at times that things are out of control, that hate is on the rise. But I now understand the power of community. It saved this place. There’s no reason it can’t save the rest of the country, or the world.”

—James Alefantis


... if there is a solution.

Outraged Andrew Scheer Demands Meeting With Al Gorithm – The Out And Abouter

Quote:
OTTAWA – “I don’t know who this Al guy thinks he is,” said Canadian prime ministerial hopeful Andrew Scheer today, as he furthered his attack on things he found online that he doesn’t understand, and isn’t interested in looking into, “But if he thinks for one second that myself and the rest of the Conservative Party of Canada aren’t onto him, and his nefarious search engine suggestions, then he is a very foolish Gorithm indeed.”
