I had been entirely unaware of the literal burning of records of the British Empire as each colony gained independence, until @genmon mentioned it: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/nov/29/revealed-bonfire-papers-empire
And... I'm almost speechless. What a clear admission of guilt that was just as hidden from those of us educated in Britain as from the newly independent countries.
Bad news about #Article13, the copyright directive (which includes Art 13) has passed the council of ministers.
Interesting footnote: if the UK gov had simply abstained (or voted against), the directive would not have passed. Britain represents enough population to form a blocking minority.
However, the British government voted in favour.
The law can still be stopped in the European courts (which is what happened to the data retention directive), but this is much messier and more difficult.
