Data deregulation promotes growth, says the trustworthy UK Government.

With our exit from the EU and the stop gap of the UK GDPR implementation, your data, while at risk as always, has been relatively safe. However there are moves afoot to change that. The UK is preparing to replace UK GDPR which is largely EU legislation, on the bonfire of Tory party vanity under...

Breaches are all the Rage

In this episode I talk about the Twitter takeover that resulted in security and governance staff leaving en masse, and the impact this has had on GDPR compliance and the creaking infrastructure.

Musk and the rise of Mastodon

During the last two weeks or so, Elon Musk has finally taken over Twitter and during that time I’ve been exploring Mastodon.

However, at a more substantial level, Mr Musk has overseen...

In this episode we delve a little deeper into why, and frankly, I was shocked. 1. Jon Stone [@joncstone]. A worker on £30k pays £3,486 income tax and £2,399 NI...

Wake up! You’re being robbed!

I take a look at the reasons why people might vote Tory in the past and highlight the energy cap increase announced today. My belief is that the Tories are protecting the interests of the energy companies and stoking division between the haves and have-nots to distract from that. Boris Johnson stated there will be...
