If this happens to be true, it would happen smack in the middle of May's snap election. O_o

Dear Americans,

 

That's "crown prosecution service", our equivalent of the DA's office, not "child protective services".

 

Love,

Ah, didn't see your post... I thought this was Child Protective Services too, relating to that DaddyOFive drama that's been all over Reddit and YouTube the past couple of days.

Elections should be interesting in both our countries.

Ah, didn't see your post...


I was literally seconds before you, so that's probably fair.

 

For those interested, the CPS has a two-stage test when deciding whether to bring a prosecution:

 

(1) Does it have sufficient evidence that it believes that it can win, and

(2) Is it in the public interest to bring a prosecution?

But what about her emails?

We've already boiled communication down to acronyms, emoticons and shrtnd sntnces, all of which are simply more efficient ways of transmitting the PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE signal from the fragile core of our souls out into the wider world. Maybe the next stage is to reduce it all down to a single noise. I'd favour a short, electronic beep, not unlike the noise emitted each time Pac-Man eats a dot.
