"Home Office officials have been sent to Singapore to copy its solution to technical issues"
This is a detail revealing what has been the whole point of #Brexit from day one - turn the UK into another Singapore.
In the past weeks, I ordered quite a few things online. Almost all shops asked for my telephone number, for most of them, entering a number was mandatory.
I used a fake number for all of them. Guess what? I still got all of my items. And if there were any problems (“sorry, there was an error in the data, so we can only send you one shirt, not the two shirts you ordered“), I got notified via email.
Anyone of you in online retail? Then, please don't ask for my number if you don't need it. :)

We have been missing every target catastrophically. And physical reality limits what we can do now.
But there is one obvious way to avoid catastrophe, drastically de-grow.
We are being sold false hope to keep the profits flowing.
Globally we must use significantly LESS total energy 2030 even as China's & India's economies of then ~3 billion are set to almost double.
This will not happen. Our current system cannot avoiding climate catastrophe.
It gets worse.
Just in regards to power-generation, the area we are doing "best" at:
By 2030 we must double our current solar and wind power and we must have more exponential growth from there.
Instead renewable growth is stalling (http://bit.ly/Stallout)
Today is the 200th anniversary of the #Peterloo massacre. On 16th August 1819, 60,000 people gathered peacefully in St. Peter's Field, Manchester to advocate for parliamentary reform when cavalry charged into the crowd, killing 18 people and injuring 400-700. It is one of the defining events in British radical history.
