    Great briefing, helps to see what you are working on.
    Better than the email (clearly email part needs improvement), here are also more stories that you work on, that I can choose to read (at least it seems that way).
    Emails should have an option of being sent once weekly.

    ‘Czech President Milos Zeman won the first round of voting in a run-off vote against Jiri Drahos to retain power on Saturday.’

    I think this is unclear and can be read as if Zeman won overall and stays in power.

    In fact, since no candidate won more than half of all votes in the first round, Zeman and Drahos (who received 2nd biggest share of votes) both go on to a second round, or a run-off, which will produce a final winner.

      If this is true (if), then that story needs editing.

    The statement that the embassy move was initiated by Bush would benefit from a hyperlink to evidence since it is effectively saying Trump’s tweet contains an untruth.

      .. though 2008 was Bush’s last year and the price may indeed have been finally agreed by the Obama administration, in which case the sentence about Bush initiating the move would be true but misleading.

        Thanks for your comment Alan. I’ve added a link now to a Reuters article that states: “The decision to acquire a new London embassy site on the south bank of the Thames was announced in 2008 under George W. Bush along with the plans to put the Grosvenor Square site in upscale Mayfair up for sale.”

        Saying that Bush initiated the move is not misleading – we’re being as accurate as possible with the information available to us. As you quite rightly point out, we don’t know who agreed the final price, which appears to be what President Trump is complaining about.
