News & Articles

EU Panic Over New Competitor- Britain!: European leaders warned Friday that Britain could become a formidable rival, just hours after a big victory by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s conservatives all but sealed the UK’s Brexit divorce. German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that Britain would be an economic “competitor at our door” after it leaves the EU and French President Emmanuel Macron saw a threat that London would become an “unfair competitor”.
This reflects concern that Britain could become a kind of “Singapore on Thames”, a trading hub where multinationals can gain access to the EU’s huge market without playing by its rules.

Students who have been blocked from their Google Docs and Gmail accounts are furious as these are central to education these days. YouTube claims to be correcting the situation. However, this demonstrates how you are at the mercy of big tech when you rely on their tools.
