    Wondering if they asked for separate trials...

    Haven't seen any articles yet. It was just Friday they had the Status hearing.

    I'm finding the same with not being able to view loads of online news that I could read before we decided to leave the EU. It's so frustrating.

    There needs to be more later follow up on reported cases, I think. I believe I had this same thought in Lucas’ thread.

    Thank you, niner for the updates as always.
