Here is a privacy thing that seems strange to me.
I buy something from an online store. The connection is https. Secure server. We protect your privacy, says the website. Great!
Once I've placed my order, they send complete details of my order to me by regular email. Unencrypted. The confirmation email includes my name, address, payment method, and the list of what I bought.
How is that protecting my privacy, ffs? And there is no way to opt out of this.

Regarding future negotiations he re-iterated to-day the EU stance that nothing can proceed until the UK accepts the obligations in the Withdrawal Agreement.
