  • Listened to Should the UK stop arming Israel?
    • Drone strike killed seven aid workers. (Some of whom British).
    • While Israel says it was a mistake, suggestion is that this is in line with Israel's current rules of engagement.
    • UK sells a small amount of arms to the UK. Sunak threatening to stop this unless more aid allowed.

    • Being the tech lead for a non-profit that develops our own software - I fully agree. We are currently going through a process of trying to divest as much bespoke code as possible to pre-existing (FLOSS) software.
