Echo Chambers Won’t Define Johnson

Posted on January 26, 2022

With everything that is going on at the moment, it is easy to think that Johnson is finished. However, if you get caught up in your own echo chamber, it is easy to imagine that everyone is feeling the same. The reality is, it doesn’t matter what I, or anyone else who despises Johnson, thinks.

Johnson Proving to be the Man we Were Warned About!

Posted on January 14, 2022

The Complex World of Online Scams!

Posted on January 3, 2022

After something of a lull, Crypto companies have upped their game on me again recently. Mainly through emails but also via social media. I am guessing this may be because I have inadvertently clicked on something. Or maybe overheard talking about crypto currency by my sinister friend, Alexa. I guess I am not helping my own cause by sitting here writing a blog about it. These emails are getting more subtle nowadays. There was a time when they ...
