The virus doesn’t move, people move it. We stop moving, the virus stops moving, the virus dies. It’s that simple. As of last night, Boris finally declared a police-enforced lock-down in the UK: hallelujah! As per the new “rules” we’re allowed to leave the house for one form of exercise a day; to buy basic … More Is Smiling Banned Too?!
I’m not usually one to worry or stress, but considering the word “pandemic” is basically just “panic” with a few extra letters thrown in for good measure, it’s hard not to feel a bit on edge right now. It’s the uncertainty that’s scary. I’ve been instructed to work from home “for the foreseeable future.” But … More Don’t Panic, It’s Only A Pandemic

In many respects 2017 started off as being one of the best years I’ve had in a while. But for the UK nation as a whole, so far it’s been one filled with anxiety and uncertainty. Three attacks in the last three months, in Westminster, Manchester and now most recently London Bridge, have instilled fear … More Troublesome Times
On 23rd June 2016 a referendum will be held in the UK to decide whether we will leave the European Union or remain as a member state. Now I won’t profess to being an expert in politics or even try to convince you that I know a great deal when it comes to the EU, because … More To Brexit Or Not To Brexit?
