Interesting times eh? For me December is normally a time for hard reflection on progress made through the year and finalising targets for the next, whilst using the Christmas party season to boost my levels of cheer to compensate for the lack of sunshine. Not so this year, whilst the report on the years achievements and the plan for next years assault on the social economy is safely tucked away, the eggnog just hasn't been able to counter the chill blowing in from the wider economic crisis.…Continue

I can imagine the headline may raise a few eyebrows, but with the VAT increase happening today I thought it made sense to raise the issue again and test the validity of such a statement.
