Battles are today fought in cyberspace , you can open a dam , you can cut communications , you can enter cell phones , you can find anybody , no technologically advanced nation no matter where wants to be found with its pants down , the British NHS was hacked as an example , banks are paranoid that money today an be transferred with the right knowhow - nothing and nobody is above these actions.

China is paranoid - so is everywhere that has increasing technological dependency.

How come at least three people I've known were called up for jury service while still in their yoof and, for all I know, have been doing it regularly every few years since?

Please don't remind me of another terrible result from Brexit.

Trump has told us we'll not get a trade deal with the US unless we agree to forego taxing US corporations.
