They hid the fact for years but finally admitted that Alexa or whatever other unnecessary thing you have in your house was recording your conversations "so the computers could learn our language"
We know how this ends. We've all seen Terminator.

The Liberal Anti-Democrats are watching you (and every voter): https://news.sky.com/story/the-lib-dems ... e-11828202 :crazy:
If only the LibDems had enough money to do this. Another crazy fake news and another insulting name calling post.

And this is from someone who cries foul if anyone should say anything that might be an attack on his good name
No name calling just a fact: The Liberal Democrats have an undemocratic policy - see your previous posts and you will see you called it out yourself "How dare you, Jo" viewtopic.php?f=22&t=87670&hilit=dare
... strange that you have such a great change of direction now after someone agrees with your initial comments...!?!

"This includes which party they will vote for in the next election" -- very clever of them , I don't know myself which way I will vote at the next election
In areas where the current party could win or lose the seat every party will be out talking to people. If they say they will or may vote for them then that person is marked on the electoral roll section the party worker carries with them. If they say they will definitely vote for another party that is also marked down.

Every party has done this before anyone on here were even born. By gathering information on possible supporters come an election they can check whether or not that person has voted and if not contact that person to encourage them to vote. They know who has or has not voted by people giving their poll card number to the party workers outside the polling room. How they voted is a mystery as only the poll card number that identifies that person is asked for. The pads with those poll card numbers go back to the local HQ for that ward and the poll numbers are checked against the part of the electoral roll for that ward. if a number comes up against someone who said they would or maybe vote for the party then they are crossed off the list.

Later in the day the will or may vote for the party who have not voted will be contacted.

I recommend it. It's a classic.
The sequels follow the law of diminishing returns, although T2 is still worth a watch.

Ah yes, T2, in my humble opinion a cinematic masterpiece.
