Mourinho and Man U get smacked down 4-0 by his old team, Chelsea who registered Mourinho's worse EPL loss ever.
What a beautiful Sunday!
Memo: Zombie Situation
IDF residents — Border Control has been instituted, and we have thus closed IDF to all traffic. IF YOU LEAVE, YOU CAN'T GET BACK IN FOR THE DURATION. Given the level of chaos in the streets of IDF and the surrounding gamemap, not to mention the legions of undead roaming the countryside as well as Old Trafford, the Security Directorate has decided it probably best we stop admitting just anyone into the region. It's all fun and games until someone gets bitten in the head...
At first we were unsure if this were an actual "Zombie event" or just legions of Cubs and/or Man U fans wandering around aimlessly. It wasn't until we noticed hordes of undead gnawing on a lampost that we decided this was probably a widespread zombie-like contagion event, and took the necessary steps to secure the region. A bit late in the day, admittedly.
Having said that, while The Holy Principality of Corsisco works-out a cure, we're currently awash in the undead. We urge the 16 million survivors to head to the bunkers under the Mazama Memorial Chatzy (the old chat room) to wait this out. We've got about 20 years worth of Rio's wine collection and crates of old cheese stocked-up to survive on.
BY the way — if you do have dead laying about your property, current protocol is to dig a large trench and burn the corpses.
Given this is year four of the Z event, it should be a well understood practice by now. Please, for the sake of the region, don't just drag them out to the curb and expect them to be collected by the IDF Corpse Removal Squads. They're a bit behind schedule, and probably won't make it to your neighborhood in time before the corpses reanimate and start gnawing on your head.
Alas, 29 million survivors vs. 71 million dead

2016: Brexit and Trump
Should prove interesting
In the year(s) ahead
Depends on your POV on "interesting."
*takes a step back from the barricade and the pile of burning tires blocking the street*
From our side of things, that largely depends on context and your POV on what constitutes "interesting." If anything, it does prove that a "Brexit-like" hate-filled populist reaction against Father Knows Best/Ivory Tower elitism can happen just about anywhere (I'm looking at you, WASC).

Four days of tennis-match influence churn during which time we've done nothing whatsoever to affect our standing. Sheer whim takes the helm.
