My Welsh fiancée laughed at this, must be legit.

Senate Leadership Is Pushing Through a Dangerous Surveillance Bill as Americans Are Focused on Covid-19.

If signed by President Trump, the bill would reauthorise Section 215 powers Congress established under the USA Patriot Act in 2001. Section 215 is the provision national-security agencies cited in the past to support their unwarranted collection of phone records of hundreds of millions of innocent people in the United States.

Na, certainly not in my country. We have the NHS which is completely separate to the Councils. NHS is primarily responsible for failing healthcare and wasting my tax money, council is primarily responsible for failing roads and public services while wasting my tax money. Both complexly separate, hence my shock.

I'm hoping the decision to buy these body bags is due to an over zealous council worker trying to spend the budget before the end of financial year in April..

@KingDings
Is it normal for a council to order body bags?

Working with a colleague today who told me he saw an order for thousands of body bags on the desk of a customers office. I asked him which hospital he was working at. He told me he wasn't working at a hospital but a council building in the East Midlands of the UK.

Ten people have been killed in what is being investigated as a suspected terror attack in the German city of Hanau after a suspected far-Right gunman opened fire at two shisha bars.

Its fascinating to actually be there, and see completely different things reported in the media. People know what their game is.

At the pub we were standing next to a group of libjos, I think they were the only ones not celebrating at 11.. Poor things.

I was lucky enough to join in with the Parliament Square celebrations last night in London. Phenomenal crowd, happy smiling people, young and old. Hand written signs, no counter protestors from what I could see. Lots of people cheering in pubs around the city too. Good night, very optimistic about the future.

ToTok amounts to the latest escalation in a digital arms race among wealthy authoritarian governments, interviews with current and former American foreign officials and a forensic investigation showed. The governments are pursuing more effective and convenient methods to spy on foreign adversaries, criminal and terrorist networks, journalists and critics — efforts that have ensnared people all over the world in their surveillance nets. nytimes.com/2019/12/22/us/poli

It would be good to see all the sources on this one. Where is this from?

This newly released batch, WikiLeaks reports, includes a memo stating 20 inspectors feel that the officially released version of the OPCW's report on Douma “did not reflect the views of the team members that deployed to [Syria]”.
