Newsletter – 14 January 2021
January 14, 2021 Newsletter
Welcome to your first newsletter of 2021. We're back in lockdown across the UK but at least the end is in sight – as we write, the vaccination programme continues at pace and hopefully by the summer this will all be a memory.
The year is only two weeks old and it's already been eventful, with some astonishing scenes in the US, the start of Britain's post-Brexit journey and, of course, COVID-19 making things far harder for everybody than they need to be.
Still, it could be worse, you could in charge of the Army's insurance claims as it emerged that the Ministry of Defence had to pay out over £3million in compensation last year after the armed services were involved in thousands of incidents. Just a little bit embarrassing, lads.
Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.
