At last a Government that cares about tomorrow!!

I whooped with delight when I heard the news that the government was going to introduce a law that will ensure future governments will have to save some of our surplus for a rainy day! At last! We have a government of common sense. If you use the Norwegians as a model, they have hardly […]

‘Empire State of Mind’

I always like to support our Public servants as in many cases they get little thanks and are sometimes used like political pawns to better the aims of political parties.

Small Business & red tape
