oldbutgoldie's bioI have Spinal Cerebellar Ataxia type 8, though I have no physical deformities, it affects my balance, my movement (I move very slow) and speech (I speak with a slur), there are some other affects on my health but none are too serious yet and thus don't affect me much.

Speakers Corner CommentsHi everyone We are surrounded by Voice Activated Machines and this good. Well it maybe but a difficulty I have encountered means that I (and I suspect many others) cannot find a way to communicate with these machines, such as Alexa, Cortana and Google assistant. This is very annoying because I am condemned to a world of mechanical silence through no fault of my own. I have a disability which distorts my voice so much I cannot talk to the machines that are becoming a more prominent part of our lives. I am not a technophobe and would like a chance to participate in the future. Enough of this Whinging but you'd think that those who make things happen would've thought of this.ViewDate:

Brexit - what happens next?There are many people who express for or against influenced by what they see in the news media but if the truth be told we ARE better off remaining. Better work conditions (for those still working) and better job security. You may not think so but the many Europeans who are in the UK work, don't take British jobs(they do work many British aren't willing to do), so therefore pay taxes and full-fill a much needed and vital part in our economy. Many foreign workers are in industries such as transport (like the buses) and the NHS. The previous referendum results were influenced by facts and figures, mainly by leavers saying how much better off we would be not paying Europe but later on much of these figures were either misleading or down right 'porkies' but the results were deemed okay but I think they weren't legal. So maybe it would be better if we had second referendum based on facts we now know!
