If you work at the CDC, you can't say the following words:

evidence-based
science-based
vulnerable
entitlement
diversity
transgender
fetus

You can, however, still say "Orwellian". At least for now.

Quote:
President Donald Drumpf’s transition team on Sunday demanded that Special Counsel Robert Mueller return “tens of thousands” of emails that were sent and received on government accounts before the 45th president took office.

A “source close to Trump’s transition told Axios on Sunday that the team plans to send a letter to Mueller this week demanding the return of emails that were reportedly obtained by the Special Counsel’s Office.

*In the letter, the transition officials plan to say they will promise to return the emails to Mueller after “privilege” documents are redacted, according to Axios.

In a letter to Congress on Sunday, attorneys for the president argued that some of the emails should have been shielded by attorney-client privilege and other privileges.

A spokesperson for Mueller’s office defended the way the emails were obtained in a statement over the weekend.

“When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner’s consent or appropriate criminal process,” spokesperson Peter Carr said.

Oh, and this cartoon from a Dutch newspaper 24 hours earlier:

Translation:
"Fokke and Sukke took precautions"
"We immediately installed a..."
"...much bigger nuclear button on our desk"

I don't understand how we can remain now even if we wanted too, surely it's too late.

Innit, knew it was trouble when he opened his mouth before the referendum.

What's your opinion on it now though ?. I mean, right before we're due to leave I wouldn't say no to another vote so the public can vote on something they know they'll be getting (single market/FoM/WTD/Spending/Irish border n shit), instead of wind like during the whole rhetoric last time. You think that would be sensible ?, or would that just be remainer wind ?.

I know it wont happen but gone past caring anyway, there's just too much shit from both sides to even entertain a discussion. The only bright side is watching the Torys trying to navigate the minefield and stepping on every switch.

in a word: no

at this point the total lack of talent, brains and imagination amongst our political class is a bigger danger than Brexit

I've just seen the demand from the car sector. Slightly embarrassing.

As for a second referendum, I believe the lazy younger voters would come out and a remain vote would win, wouldn't be a good thing in the short term with unrest etc and (IMO) kill off any chances the UK has of having a good old chin up crack at it?

Yarp, tis a shitshow for sure and can't argue with that :up:

I still think it'd make sense but the problem isn't so much brexit anymore. Atleast if we stay in the EU we're reducing any long term damage ?

As much as I think Brexit in general is a bad idea for England, honestly though, the EU is better off without the UK.

Behave son, the UK is both a consumer and provider. I'm not gonna say the UK is bigger than the EU by any stretch but say to it's better off without is a bit of a statement, especially with the amount of debt the Eurozone is holding and what's gonna happen to the GDP of it after which.
