Not names and addresses but things which are nothing to do with the Governent like state of health and qualifications (I could give myself a PHD!). Who's going to check sixty million records to see if your health is really as bad a...

I always prefer to choose whether to update or not. If you go into OPTIONS > UPDATE, you can set it to ask first. Then you can check if your add-ons are compatible.

It's going to be so hard to get things done

'Nuclear power is a proven, large-scale, low-carbon way to generate electricity,' said Wicks. 'To enhance energy security and reduce our reliance on imports...'

  • 1. Do they believe it?
  • 2. Have they the courage to do something positive?
