While the average article focusses on the announcement of WhatsApp's about-face regarding the implementation of advertising, its founders having repeatedly assured user that the messaging platform would never carry advertising, the bigger issue is this: Facebook, which bought WhatsApp and authorised those assurances, and guaranteed users privacy, is about to plunder WhatsApp user data and to make it available to third parties. USers have a stark choice: try to sort out a complex opt out (that depends on whether Facebook can be trusted and history repeatedly demonstrates otherwise), to accept the total loss of privacy in messaging or to leave WhatsApp entirely.

It used to be that the solicitors branch of the legal profession in England and Wales was compelled to purchase its professional indemnity insurance (PII) from a single, approved, insurer and the cost was very high. Rightly, the profession voted to widen the scheme to permit approved PII to be purchased from third party insurers on a competitive level. But things have not gone according to plan and the latest crisis threatens the future of several firms.

Economists are lining up to say that the Republic of Ireland's astonishing 26% growth in GDP has no meaning, in the great scheme of things. They are wrong and this is why: Ireland attracts high-value added businesses because of its commitment to low income and corporate taxes that most of the EU, the USA and Australia want it to change.

Recently, the FIA told Formula One Teams that "the honeymoon is over" with regard to radio messages. On Saturday, the FIA announced a "zero tolerance" approach to track limits - but then provided for discretion. Are Stewards decisions now more suited to judging ice dancing where views on artistic merit trump the certainty of black and white boundaries?

Stay Calm and Do Business. The "Remain" camp remain in "Project Fear" mode and are busy talking down the economic prospects and talking up differences into divisions. While the President of the EU and German politicians are trying to take control, there is one - and only one - reality that needs concern anyone, whoever and wherever they are, today. The result of the referendum did one thing and one thing only: it provided that, at some point in the future, the UK will cease to be part of the European Union. But that is not today, it is not tomorrow and it is not for a minimum of two years. Moreover, the UK and only the UK is in control of the timetable for starting the process. Even more...

Thank you, Britain.

The UK has voted to end its full membership of the European Union in a referendum, although the result has, at the time of writing, not been formally announced, the losers are actively working to create divisions within the country and turning to hostile rhetoric to foster their own agendas.

Today, the UK votes on whether it has a future, or whether it will become a sub-state of a federal Europe.

That is the simple, blunt choice facing the electorate. Everything else is secondary.

Worse, the secondary arguments which have clouded the issue have been presented largely as unsupported threats to individuals or the state. If the "REMAIN" camp have almost nothing but negative pressure and promises that history shows cannot be kept, surely they have already lost their right to be trusted.

There are, quite simply, insufficient rational reasons for the UK to remain. For you, your children, their children and the country, vote LEAVE.

Here are reasoned...

What is going on at Mercedes? At the Spanish Grand Prix, both of their cars went out after Rosberg's car had an incorrect engine setting. In the European Grand Prix in Baku, Hamilton struggled for most of the race with an incorrect engine setting. Everyone agrees that the cars have become too technical for the drivers to drive without outside assistance. Surely that is against one of the sport's most basic principles?

ASIC, the Australian companies regulator has appointed provisional liquidators to the Uglii group of companies. First, don't panic: it's nothing to do with Uggs, the cult boots. Second, do panic if you run an unlisted business with numerous shareholders and a typical internet business model because that seems to be the primary cause of the regulator's concern.

As it rains on the Labour Party's parade, their Brexit battle bus shows the direction Labour wants Europe to take. It's going left. That is just one of the problems facing an increasingly disunited Labour as it follows the Conservatives into near meltdown over the issue.

A storm has been unleashed as the 16 year old victim of a gang rape filmed and broadcast, along with other photographs, via Twitter has given an interview to Brazillian newspaper O Globo in which it is clear: the rape and its subsequent broadcast are only a part of the problems she faces.
It's time to clean up the 'net, says Nigel Morris-Cotterill

Transit Explore Bus, a Chinese company, has presented a model of a fascinating concept in mass transit. They call it the "straddling bus" but it runs on a guide-rail system built into high-kerbs to prevent cars blocking its way. And it travels over vehicles of up to 2 metres high, which includes the vast majority of light delivery vehicles.

Some people like to live in, or visit for show-events, an environment where they can parade their frou-frou doggies with bows in their hair while comparing the price of Paris lips (expensive gains more kudos, regardless of how ridiculous they look), cellulite treatments and, of course, to criticise the effectiveness of someone else's skin cream at keeping sun-induced wrinkles at bay. And they expect clear blue skies and sun.

Welcome to Monaco where it pissed down on race day. Then the sun came out. Then it rained again. Then there was the race which didn't do as expected, either.
