I'm leaving Hargreaves Lansdown. Off to work for @pureelectricnow cycling, electric bicycles and e-scooters. Bit of a change. Secretly I think maybe I care a bit more about bikes than I do about pensions. Took me until 53 to realise

Prem Sikka asks why the UK Government has not followed the European lead of not bailing out companies that don’t pay tax.
Virgin Atlantic is (VA) still talking with the UK government about a £500m bailout.
Why has the UK not followed Denmark, Poland, France & refuse bailouts for tax haven controlled companies? VA parent company is in BVI, Richard Branson has 51% of VA.https://t.co/m6IEDtUVzT
