We are talking about the published accounts of a PLC here, so I'm not sure why you wouldn't believe the numbers reported. The financial position of the company is frankly amazing considering the...

The UK government has made it clear that international travel will not be permitted to return in any meaningful sense: the official...

The British government does not care about business travel (Boris "F*** business" Johnson), and it cares even less about enabling families to be together. All indications are that extreme...
