    It's not as you get older, the break point is when you retire which could be any age. Not having to earn a living - assuming you've planned well enough to be self sufficient - changes things quite...

    Well, it's a nice dream. The world has changed though. Some clients will pay over the odds for "the best", but they will become both increasingly rare and increasingly picky. The commercial risks of...

    Really? Not everything s about Brexit you know. Some of us can hold on to more than one line of thought at a time.

    HMRC haven't lost that may cases. Most people claiming a victory turn out to have had the investigation halted, not abandoned. The high profiles cases have been from courts above the original...

    When I see a Labour PM who isn't or wasn't a complete failure, then I might have an opinion. Until then, any Labour leaders can be safely ignored as irrelevant. Especially the unelected ones.
