On a complete separate note: is it just me or has the UK gone completely barmy re Internet policy?

Other countries have their problems but we seem to be doing particularly badly.

@jim My impression is that politicians and journalists have been providing a constant stream of barmy proposals for decades, but they usually get stopped before they get to parliament. Maybe Brexit has the civil service service distracted?

@ghost_bird I think they don't spot barmy so well with the Internet. DCMS are under-resourced, lack weight and structurally set up to accept barmy from rights holders in the creative industries.

UK politics 

@jim Especially when there's bigger issues. Like completing the transition to metric, learning how not to drive on the wrong side of the road, and canceling brexit.
