While we’re on the subject of Facebook, a couple of days ago I sent a message to Craig that went something like this:
“Talking of impartiality, remember what I wrote in the early days of the blog? I said I thought that true impartiality is well nigh unachievable unless the entire human race and the animal kingdom are force-tagged from birth with recording devices - a head-cam (or as science progresses a mind-reading device.) All inanimate objects must have fully operational CCTV at all times, pointing in all directions.Then all thoughts, sights and experiences are to be live-streamed everywhere indiscriminately and simultaneously for ever and ever ad infinitum." No more selectivity from the likes of the BBC, Sky, Channel 4, al-Jaz or RT. Just billions of ‘everywhere all-the-time’ screens continuously, live.”
Of course I was being flippant then but I’m not laughing quite so much now.

My timeline just got intruded upon there by a 'suggested' ad for Jeremy Corbyn.
Wisely not opportunity to comment, but sporting a grand total of three 'likes'.
Sadly I was unable to add to this count from my position on the floor.
