Doing business abroad?

Banks? Don’t get me started. There’s nothing more soul destroying that having done some graft for a client, only to have a bank snaffle a slice of your earnings, all because you happen to be in another country. My accountant pointed me in the direction of Transferwise – and it looked like the perfect solution. My main worry was how to ensure that my clients were happy signing up for this service, as in the first instance, it requires jumping through a few hoops. The thing is, it’s a win-win (hence the illustration). They pay the transfer fee, and I get a fair exchange rate. Happy days!

The nation speaks

I think we’ll be trying to figure out what the nation actually said for many years to come. That’s if anyone cares to listen…

Lies…

After the UK voted to leave the EU, I tuned in to a BBC station, where a woman (who had voted to leave) was giving comfort to those that had voted to stay. “At the very least, it’s a great day for democracy.” If I was democracy, I’d be pretty pissed off – getting trotted out once in a generation only to be patted on the back, and put back in the political cupboard. It’s been a great day for lies and liars.

All lies and jest…

In order to be a leader, you need to acquire a following. In order to acquire a common following, you need a common enemy. These people have made the EU the common enemy. But the EU can’t be the enemy – as we are part of the EU, and therefore it is what we are prepared to make it.

Hatred is the enemy. Racism is the enemy. Empire is the enemy.

We should have listened to our young people.

Brexit Graph of Trust

Sorry to get all political on you, but seriously, those guys?
They’re not campaigning for the UK to leave the EU because it’ll be good for you. They’re campaigning to leave the EU because it’ll be good for them.

3000 chairs

This campaign from children’s author Nicola Davies grabbed me. I’m deeply ashamed that the UK have said no to hosting 3000 refugee children. Please check it out. As suggested by Nicola, I had to draw an empty chair. And so, I asked my 5-year-old what sort of things a chair should have? Buttons, jet engines, lights of course…
