Wirecard Collapse

One thing guaranteed to upset people, is to mess with their hard-earned money. The news of Wirecard’s collapse has dealt a devastating blow to the many thousands of people who have lost their money. The nature of the institution means they have little hope of ever seeing any of it again. As many will have used these as an alternative to a bank account because they have not been able to access one, this means the collapse has directly affected some of society’s most vulnerable people.


The New Normal (And It’s All Different!)

Light At The End of The Tunnel

Lockdown 2 was a blow to many people and businesses who had been hoping to make a recovery in the lead up to Christmas. Now though, it seems the combination of new, faster testing methods and three vaccines could bring the hope that 2021 will see us getting back to what used to be 'normal' life.
