Isabel Woodford understandably intrigued by today’s N26 developments. Woodford breaks down what she thinks is happening in this thread.
Intrigued by N26’s persistence here to prevent a works council via any legal route they can. Police were also called to 2nd meeting but have since left. Hearing this response is deeply frowned upon and “non-German”.. founders are going to have to do some serious damage control. https://t.co/qBEzD5c41Y

And finally, Mark Taber highlights ISA scams to the FCA, and FCA slow response.
