If you are among the rich homeless, there is one thing you don’t want to happen – lose your documents. But bad people are, unfortunately, everywhere and even there where you least expect them. So, you leave the wallet behind in an office where you wouldn’t envisage that it would get legs, but by the time you get back, not … More Catch 22 of EU Policies
The winter of 2014 is around the corner in London. One of the bustling capitals of the world is speeding into the new year.
