Corbyn is ‘big online’ but it doesn’t matter

At a recent meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn told his disgruntled MPs that it doesn’t matter they are a near unprecedented twenty points behind in the polls because he is “big on social media”. One unsympathetic MP said Jeremy’s 850,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook are “worth sod all”, but social media has undeniably […]

Modern propaganda – fake it till ya make it

Fake news is on the rise and it is important to question how it will affect an industry such as public relations, which is based on the dissemination and communication of accurate information from one party (the client) to the public. 2016 was a year of many things but the latter half of the year […]

Like many people in their 20s living in London, I spend a large amount of my income on rent and often find myself anxiously eying my bank balance as the payment day approaches.

Where is the trust?

A lot has been written about the advice gap; the five million or more lost souls struggling to find financial advice.
