#DespiteBrexit Double Whammy

Barely a week into 2018 the #DespiteBrexit crowd are already being confounded by strong economic indicators.

Meanwhile, London is enjoying a post-Brexit tech boom after venture capital investment in the sector reached an enormous all-time high. London is beating its closest European rival, Paris, hands down: London tech firms on average receive four times as much investment cash as French companies.

Quote of the Day

The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.”
