Is anyone in UK or EU unable to reach UPI website?

I'm right now in Windsor, Ontario and message says site can't be reached.

This is especially concerning following American Secretary of State Tillerson's statement on DPRK

I find it better not to try and work out why the internet doesn't work properly - it's just a fact of the digital age that nothing works properly anymore.

I describe it as like having a hammer where the head falls off periodically and getting the response, "Yeah, it does that sometimes. Just stick it back on again and it'll work ok. No problem". :lol:

Lol ! Good analogy!

I imagine the MOP (Ministry Of Propaganda) press love the fact that they can now manipulate public paranoia to the level we're seeing today, it's as if pretty much everyone is expecting the failsafes of western democracy to collapse.

must keep reminding myself the mainstream corporate press are having a sponsorship field day
for at least the next four years, maybe for good now

I love that analogy with the hammer also. I have to keep all wooden tools with a metalhead on them immersed in water to ease the shrinkage.
hey vikmarlow, not everyone feels paranoia at the same time do they :?:

"I imagine the MOP (Ministry Of Propaganda) press love the fact that they can now manipulate public paranoia to the level we're seeing today,

oops forgot to check UPinternational.

more of a barometre as to prevailing public mood since U.S. election November last.

I only dabble in MOP headlines these days, just enough to gauge sensationalism/exploitation

UPI up again here after some troubleshooting
