Internet Privacy: Are You Due Compensation From Google?

Google sued for ‘snooping on iPhone users’: Will 5.4mn Brits get compensation?
Google is facing yet another lawsuit arising from its abuse of internet users’ privacy rights. This time the world’s most evil corporation (except for Facebook,) is being sued over allegations that it collected personal data of millions of  iPhone users without offering an opt out or even putting an advice in the small pring of their terms and conditions. Up to 5.4 million people in Britain alone could be entitled to compensation if the class action is successful.

A group led by Richard Lloyd, the executive director of consumer body Which?, claims the internet giant unlawfully collected personal information by bypassing the default settings on the iPhone and tracking online behavior of people using the Safari browser between June 2011 and February 2012.

Google then allegedly used the illicitly gathered data in its DoubleClick advertising business, which enables advertisers to target content according to a user’s browsing habits. Such action is a violation of trust  Lloyd said. He added that the lawsuit is unprecedented and represents “one of the biggest fights of my life.” At this point the lawsuit only applies to data gathered from  iPhones. If the case goes against Google it could change the way we use the internet as ad – funded websites will no longer be viable.

The lawsuit, filed in London’s High Court, alleged Google’s hack, known as the ‘Safari Workaround,’ breached UK data protection laws by taking personal information without permission.

“I believe what Google did was simply against the law. Their actions have affected millions, and we’ll be asking the courts to remedy this major breach of trust,” Lloyd told the Guardian. “In all my years speaking up for consumers, I’ve rarely seen such as massive abuse of trust where so many people have no way to seek redress on their own.”

Lloyd, who has set up the group Google You Owe Us, added: “Google owes all of those affected fairness, trust and money. By joining together, we can show Google that they can’t get away with taking our data without our consent, and that no matter how large and powerful they are, nobody is above the law.”

The idea that internet companies are not above the law will surprise Google executives whose actions show they believe Google can choose which laws it obeys, and send shockwaves through the Silicon Valley tech giants, whose profits have been swelled enormously by their being allowed to play fast and loose with privacy and consumer protection laws.

Roughly 5.4 million people in Britain had an iPhone between June 2011 and February 2012 and could be eligible for compensation, according to the claim. Although the size of any payout would be determined by the court, Lloyd said he expected each claimant would receive several hundred pounds.

Lloyd has secured £15.5 million in backing from Therium, a company that funds litigation and has previously backed group claims such as the consumer action against Volkswagen in the scandal over diesel emissions.

A Google spokesperson said: “This is not new. We have defended similar cases before. We don’t believe it has any merit and we will contest it.”

He may well be wrong about that. While Microsoft have always taken a ‘caveat emptor’ approach to security flaws in its producs, Apple guards its intellectual propoerty far more assiduously, and this breach was only achieved with a deliberate hack.

The case is the first time such a collective action – in which one person represents a group with a shared grievance, akin to a US-style class action – has been brought in Britain against a leading tech company over alleged misuse of data.

Google has already paid millions of dollars to US states and the US Federal Trade Commission over the Safari security bypass, which also suggests the smug spokesperson quoted above is on very dodgy ground.

London’s Black Cab Drivers Take On Uber Cancer

A few blocks behind the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe theater is a place few tourists, or even Londoners, ever see. Keep going past the Tesco Express and through an unmarked driveway to reach a car park jammed with black cabs.

In the  well hidden places around London where drivers of the city’s iconic Black Cabs can have a rest, a cup of tea and a bacon sarni in a cash-only cafe fashioned from a double-wide mobile home. Open 24 hours, the Great Suffolk Street Taxi Cafe is a place for comfort food and conversation.

London cabbies are notorious for having strong opinions. About everything. These days however, Uber is a popular topic.

After Transport for London (TfL), the British capital’s transport regulator, refused on Sept. 22 to renew Uber’s license to operate, we visited the cafe to see what cabbies thought of the news. One might have expected elation, but the reality was a mix of defiance, quiet resignation and “bring it on.” To many of the drivers, Uber, which arrived in London in 2012, is destroying a proud and historic tradition that plays a vital and iconic role in the city’s life. Competition is fine, they say, but fair competition is not what this is.

Sean Paul Day, a taxi driver for 18 years, says Uber is destroying a proud and historic local culture. He's also a co-founder of a taxi-hailing app called TaxiApp.
Sean Paul Day, a taxi driver for 18 years, says Uber is destroying a proud and historic local culture. He’s also a co-founder of a taxi-hailing app called TaxiApp.

 

Drivers socialize in the patchy afternoon sun and a steady stream of cabs (officially called Hackney carriages) arrive and park at the disused gas pumps of an old service station.

There’s not a lot to capture your attention inside the spartan cafe, with its hard plastic chairs and bare tables. A TV plays Sky Sports. The menu is equally spartan: instant coffee for £1, a full English breakfast (served all day) for £5, and a selection of classic British desserts like sticky toffee pudding, jam roly-poly and spotted dick. We’re only minutes from some of London’s poshest restaurants, but this feels miles away. (The Taxi Cafe is open to the public.)

Around several of the tables, groups of cabbies enjoy their lunch with few moments of silence. It takes a while to break into the conversation at the next table, but just a brief mention of Uber wins us an invitation to sit and share a cuppa and a chinwag.

Sean Paul Day, a driver of 18 years, has the table’s center seat. Tall and animated, he speaks rapidly and gets straight to the point. “The KGB would have given their right arm to have Uber’s power,” he says while eating a large plate of fish and chips (at £9, one of the pricier dishes on the menu). Uber “is a global, heavily financed profiteer going against a local taxi trade. As big as the taxi service is in London, it’s still local.”

Uber has appealed TfL’s decision and will be allowed to operate normally during that process. On Oct. 3, the company’s new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, who had already apologized to Londoners for “messing up,” visited London to hold talks with the city’s transit officials. In a tweet that same day, he said he was “determined to make things right in this great city!” TfL also released a statement on Tuesday characterizing the talks as “constructive” and said that more discussion would continue in the coming weeks.

The global versus local debate is hardly unique to Uber, but it exemplifies a common theme we heard over and again. None of these taxi drivers is angry at Uber’s drivers; rather, their beef is with Uber as a company. George Vyse, who’s been driving for 47 years and buying and selling used black cabs for 40 years, is outraged at how little Uber pays its drivers, describing it as “slave labor.”

Black-cab drivers are self-employed, meaning they can keep all the money they earn from fares. Uber, on the other hand, takes up to 25 percent of every fare. The company doesn’t openly speak about average earnings, but last year union GMB won a case against Uber because one driver was found to be earning less than minimum wage after the company had taken its cut. With a £2.60 flat-rate base fare for any cab ride, black-cab drivers need to pick up only three passengers an hour to earn the national minimum wage of £7.50.

It has always been the case that women felt perfectly safe riding in a licenced cab when alone. There were cases of assault but they were rare, largely because it is very difficult to qualify as a licenced cab driver and the god living that qualification brings is not lightly thrown away.  Transport for London’s main beef was Uber’s attitude to passenger safety, the company omitted to report sex crimes committed by its drivers and did not even discipline drivers whose sexual misdemeanours with female passengers were the subject of complaints. This has resulted in widespread anger, not just in London, similar situations have arisen in other European cities and Uber have already been banned in Barcelona and several German cities. There have been more reported sexual offences against cab passengers in the last two to three years by Uber drivers than by licenced cabbies in the 50 years preceding Uber’s arrival in the city.

Thirty two Uber drivers were accused of rape or sexual assault in the 2016 alone, according to freedom of information data obtained by The Sun newspaper. Earlier this year, existing fears about Uber were exacerbated when the Metropolitan Police Force accused the company of failing to report sex attacks. Now TfL has piled on, accusing Uber of being careless with Londoners’ safety by failing to institute proper background vetting.

But as with the minimum wage law and other national laws, Uber, like most silicon valley tech giants seems to have a free pass to ignore them. It may have met its match in London’s voluble cab drivers however.

Sweden Rivals Mexico for Grenade Attacks, Shooting Fatalities Five Times Higher Than Neighbouring Countries

A new report has shown that the number of fatal shootings in Sweden is up to four to five times that in Germany and the number of hand grenade attacks is on par with Mexico.

We have reported many times on how the ‘open doors’ immigration policy operated by the Swedish government for over a decade has resulted in that once safe and peaceful nation becoming with more rapes per 100,000 population that anywhere else in Europe and, as this latest news shows, lawless and violence on a par with third world nations.

Sweden per capita has a rate of gun crime resulting in fatalities four to five times that of its neighbour Norway or Germany according to a new report. The researchers say that the only European equivalent to gun crime in Sweden is southern Italy, and the use of hand grenades in attacks is rivalled only by areas of Mexico in which drug cartels operate, Sveriges Radio reports.

Researcher and criminologist Joakim Sturup who contributed to the study said: “When we speak with police and research colleagues abroad, finding a counterpart in other countries is difficult.”

Sturup said that the study found that most of the past violent crime, which was largely associated with outlaw motorcycle gangs, had moved to the suburbs of major cities in Sweden. Many have referred to these areas, like Rinkeby, Tensta, and Husby, as no-go zones as police and emergency services working in those areas are often attacked.

In Husby, the local authorities attempted to revitalise the areas for local businesses by hiring security personnel to protect shops from looting and violence. The effort proved unsuccessful as no security company offered to take on the job due to the dangerous working environment.

The Swedish government has estimated that there are currently 61 no-go areas, up from 55 last year. Swedish National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson begged the government for assistance to tackle the problem earlier this year and said without help the over 5,000 hard criminals could destabilise the social contract.

FBI Secret Deal With Hillary Clinton Leaked

Agents have told reporters that an “inside deal with put in place” and the secret meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton was to secure the arrangement.

Agents were also forced to sign extensive nondisclosure agreements so they may never talk about the investigation. Outrageous!

In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton e-mail case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify.

Swedish Man Prosecuted for Assaulting Muslims with Bacon

28 March, 2017
A Swedish man has been arrested and charged with racism after being accused of eating bacon in proximity to a group of veiled Muslim women, and of calling them derogatory names.

The alleged offence occurred  in the Swedish capital of Stockholm last weekend. The Swede, who has not been named by media or the police, is said to have approached the women, who were identifiable as Muslims by the  Islamic headgear they were wearing, on a train while he was eating a bacon sandwich. He is alleged to have dangled the bacon in front of their faces, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

According to the report, the women moved to different seats but the bacon waving man followed. He is alleged to have called them derogatory names and made racist comments. Neither the police nor the public prosecutor has specified what was said during the incident.

The prosecutors allege he then used racial epithets on another woman in the train station after getting off the train. He faces charges of incitement to racial hatred.

Reaction to the incident on social media has been a mix of laughter and disbelief among English language users. Twitter user PeterSweden tweeted his disbelief at the charges saying: “What’s the next step, being racist for walking your dog?”

Dog are of course considered unclean animals by Islam and therefore are offensive to Muslims.

Somali Rapist Was Not Deported: Rapes Again. This Is Why Teresa May Should Not Be Prime Minister

migrants-610085

Wannabe Prime Minister Theresa May, soft on immigrant crime, soft on the causes of immigrant crime (picture source: Daily Express)

As she campaigns to be elected leader of The Conservative Party and thus Prime Minister, Theresa May glibly promises to be firm in maintaining law and order and to address the problems caused by mass immigration by reforming immigration laws and enforcing border controls. But can she be trusted?

May is a peerless self promoter but as Home Secretary, the government minister who oversees both law and order and immigration, she has not only presided over the greatest infux of illegal immigrants ever (many of them lacking even basic travel documents) and has established a track record for giving in to the shrill voices of the ‘open borders’ lobby and being soft on immigrant crime.

Here’s just one example of what has happened on May’s watch, this is one of many individual crimes, quite apart from the cases in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford, Birmingham, reading, Blackburn, Sheffield, Nottingham and London of organised gangs of Muslim immigrants abusing vulnerable young women.

A rapist from Somalia who successfully fought deportation, on grounds that his ‘human rights’ would be abused if he was sent back to Somalia, following his first jail term for rape has now been jailed for ten years for the rape of two women in Birmingham. His lawyer had argued “he had a lack of understanding of what is acceptable in the UK”.

Dahir Ibrahim, 31, was jailed in 2005 for ten years for the rape of a prostitute in Birmingham’s Edgbaston district, with the judge recommending he be deported following his sentence. Obviously he is either not very bright or a habitual rapist if he did not learn from his first spell in jail what isn’t acceptable in Britain or anywhere else in the civilised world.

Ibrahim’s lawyers successfully appealed that deportation order, and was given leave to remain in the UK.

Now he has been convicted of the rape of two vulnerable women in 2014, for which he has been handed a second decade-long sentence. It is understood that he will be deported at the end of his sentence, The Times has reported.

Thay may be the judge’s intent but if Theresa May is Prime Minister I reckon the stupid, politically correct bint will find a way to keep this Sewer Slime in the UK.

Steven Bailey, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said the first victim was looking to buy cannabis on the night of September 5th when she was approached by Ibrahim who persuaded her to follow him down an alleyway by offering to sell her drugs. There he threatened her with a Stanley box-cutter knife and raped her.

The second victim was sleeping rough when she was attacked by Ibrahim on the night of October 18th, threatening her with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver.

He was eventually tracked down by police through a combination of DNA, forensic and CCTV evidence.

Jabeen Akhtar, defending, argued that his client had come from a country where he had witnessed many atrocities and consequently lacked understanding of what was acceptable in the UK.

“It was more opportunistic than pre-planned,” he said, adding: “No long-term physical injury was sustained by the victims.”

But the judge, Justice Murray Creed disagreed. Passing sentence he said: “There was abuse and humiliation. There was severe psychological hurt and harm done. There was degradation. They were sustained incidents and the victims were targeted.”

Detective Constable Gavin McGrath from West Midlands Police, said: “The evidence against Ibrahim was indisputable and, in desperation, he tried to claim that it was a ‘fit up’. But a few days before he was due to stand trial, he changed his plea to guilty.

“I am pleased that he has spared these women the further ordeal of a trial and he will now be behind bars and no longer a danger to the public.”

The judge is on the right track. The politicians however are more concerned with sucking up to left wing media and the chatterati to ever put justice ahead of politically correct snivelling cowardice.

Olympic Disaster. What happened to globalism?

On June 17, with only arounf seven weeks to go before the start of the Olympic Games, the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has declared a “state of public calamity.”

A financial crisis is preventing the state from honoring its commitments to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the state governor told a press conference. The crisis is so severe, he said, it could eventually bring about “a total collapse in public security, health, education, mobility and environmental management.”

The authorities are now authorized to ration essential public services and the state is eligible for emergency funds from the federal government.

Recent visitors to Rio, asked how preparations for the Games are going tend to respond “not well”. The city reportedly looks like a huge construction site. Bricks and pipes are piled everywhere; a few workers lazily push wheelbarrows as if the Games were scheduled for 2017. Nobody knows what the construction sites will become, not even the people working on them:

“It’s for the Olympics” was the unanimous reply, followed by speculation about “tents for the judging panels of volleyball or soccer, I guess.”

Work on the beach volleyball arena at Copacabana Beach is at a standstill because the organizers failed to get the correct building licenses. Then the structure was damaged by waves. Only after that happened did workers erect a six-foot-high sand barrier to protect the site. The sand does not offer much protection against waves (we all learned as kids what happens to sand castles when the tide comes in) but it protects thugs; tourists are being mugged behind the embankment. A construction worker told me he’d seen a man stabbed there, and warned me to stay away. The robbers were so confident of plying their trade unmolested that they had left their backpacks and a beach chair nearby on the sand.

The unfinished beach volleyball court at Copacabana beach -doable in six weeks except the site looks abandoned according to European and American journalists.

03barbara2-superjumbo

At the Deodoro Olympic Park, which is apparently open to anyone who wants to wander in and have a nosey round, half-built grandstands were, according to people who did just that, stood abandoned in the middle of a Friday afternoon.

The few projects that have been completed don’t inspire much confidence either. In April, a newly built bike path along Rio’s seashore collapsed, killing two people.

Frequent shootouts near the Olympic arenas and on routes to them are also a concern: 76 people have been hit by stray bullets in Rio so far this year; 21 of them have died. On June 19, more than 20 men carrying assault rifles and hand grenades stormed the city’s largest public hospital to free an alleged drug kingpin in police custody, leaving one person dead and two hurt.

There’s a dearth of signs and tourist information on the streets and on public transportation to help visitors avoid the notorious Favelas, the slums where crime is rife and street gangs or drug barons are the only law. Few of the bus or tram stops displayed information about which lines go w here. Visitors could resort to asking street traders and passers-by for directions, but these people are from the Favelas. You’d better be alble to speak Portuguese and be handy with as knife or you’ll be fucked. Literally.

At this late stage it is difficult to see how the games can be a success, but you can bet the elites and corporate owned mainstream media channels will close ranks and paint a glossy picture. Those of us who watch on TV or read print media will see nothing of the rotting corpses in the side streets, alleyways and open sewers or the rats an stray dogs that feed on them.  The power elites are already crapping themselves because so many of us are aware of their abject failure to manage anything except propaganda. A high profile failure such as this could finish them.

As Aristotle said: “The greatest inequalities come from efforts to make unequal things equal.
