So, let's start with an #introduction...
I'm a pediatric nurse by ☀️ and 🌙, ☕ lover and a 🐕 owner for life.
There're days (less than it should) when I take some time to #cycling 🚴♂️

Climate change 'getting worse faster than we are mobilizing to solve it': Al Gore. "I did think at the time that there was a chance he might change on climate when presented with the facts," Gore said when he met Trump. "I was clearly wrong about that… He doesn't want to change on it."
Yikes.

In essence the case is about preventing parliament being prorogued. Which makes it doubly interesting that YouGov released a poll on exactly this topic yesterday.
Broadly, UK voters are against proroguing parliament by about 2:1. Remain & Labour voters are massively against. Leave & Tory voters are narrowly for it (surprise, eh?).
So, don't believe any nonsense about proroguing parliament being "the will of the people". Nobody voted for it, and the polls suggest the exact opposite.

@emanuel Wire collects a lot more metadata than Signal: contact book, profile info, conversations metadata, archived conversations, frequent contacts, groups info and your profile photo. Signal keeps none of that. Over all I find it simpler to use. Normies like simple things and Signal is great drop-in replacement for WhatsApp. Greater user base is also a thing to consider.
It makes me sad and it's beyond my knowledge how we let our governments keep denying the effects of global warming and the urgency of change...
