Last Night at the Poms

I’m with Simon Rattle who said in a recent interview with the Radio Times that he avoided conducting the Last Night because of its “jingoistic elements”.

My Personal Experience Highlights How Brexit has thrown a Spanner into Smooth Running 21C Businesses

I would never knowingly have placed an order for a relatively high value item knowing it was sourced from the UK post Brexit.

The ordinary workers now see that some sort of change will happen. And THAT’s what they voted for. Continue reading
