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.
