And why this is terrible for those hit hardest by cost of living & classic car owners

Thump! The sound of a government-commissioned 258-page report on racism in the UK hitting tables yesterday. Smack!

Was the virtual blackout enough?

#BlackOutTuesday was phenomenal, but it’s hardly adequate when #BlackLivesMatter

There was a blackout on the web yesterday – around 30 million black squares posted on #BlackOutTuesday to saturate social media with one crucial message: #BlackLivesMatter.

It was surreal and heart-warming,  and sent out a much-needed message of solidarity that was unprecedented in its scope and sentiment.
