This is a "What's up with you?" thing and it may be a First world problem and it's definitely a "Bits and PCs" thing. But it's a fuckup and it's affecting me and not most of y'all, so I think it's logical to blame Brexit.

I haven't been able to access :ff: via my wired broadband all day. No other sites are affected (though I wouldn't be surprised if it's a cloudflare issue) - and it turns out to be fine using my mobile data. So here I am. :glarecat:

If it'll help get Brexit done I will disclose that I'm using Edge and the past few days :ff: was slow and generating lots of 503 errors. It seems better today.

The 503 errors were Cloudflare's fault and the improved speed to thanks to vm getting rid of that Weirdness.

The inability of my ISP to cope with the change is definitely due to Brexit, though.

Exchange I just had with oldest on Skype:

T: got my new passport. it's not very blue, it's almost black. but i'm glad i can finally reap the mighty benefit of brexit with it, for all the ten times i'll look at it again

Slim: Well then it's all been worth it. And what follows will be much easier to bear, knowing your passport is such a deep blue as to be nearly black. Like the hearts of every true brexiter.

T: I mean if Scotland exit the uk they'll have to change the passports again, perhaps this type will be collectible

These councils just need to understand and accept that central government (:bow4:) knows what is best for them. And they should be thankful for being information in advance.

I'm guessing it'll be a little less Ellis Island, and a smidge more Alcatraz.

Live Boris Johnson says UK should prepare for a no-deal Brexit and 'Australia-style' future

Australia is known for having lots of things that are out to kill you, yes?

I can think of no better metaphor for the Conservative Party, (unless you're white, well-off, Christian or atheist, and have several generations of British ancestors).

Britain won't get turfed out of Eurovision - more likely to turf itself in a fit of pique - "they keep given us 'nul points' because they are biased not because our songs are crap".
