An article on why racism was the main reason Britain voted leave.
“You know you are on the right side of the political divide when Wilders and Le Pen congratulate you!” In 2005 I left the UK for the EU for what was then an 18 month stint in “mainland Europe”. Mainland is an important word here as the attitudes of people in the civilised part of Europe are ...

Got an NVidia Shield tablet, then DO NOT UPDATE!
The Shield K1 is a great tablet, not too expensive and with great graphics what's more out of the box it works great. Yes I did use the word great a lot in the last sentence. However, there is one major flaw… if you update to Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) the battery will drain even when you are ...

Would you like to avoid the traffic jams in Luxembourg while also getting some benefits for doing so? Please check out our gamified app study.
The Driver Diaries helped us understand more about the travel patterns of people in Luxembourg. With this information we are able to start looking at ways to reduce traffic congestion. This will be done with Commutastic, our new study that starts in June 2015.

The European Union has announced it's new Visa entry form for certain nationals. It will come into effect from April 1st 2017… If you are traveling to Europe it is a good idea to check it out first before you go as you could be prevented from entering. Seriously though good luck England and ...

Story
Tagline
Somewhere in mainland Europe
Introduction
I live and work currently in Luxembourg but I was previously in Germany for a few years. I like many things from theatre to IT. For work I get excited about doing new things, preferably things that have not been done before. 

I am heavily into news, current affairs, human-rights and politics. I have no patience for most politicians as to date I have found few who are capable of digesting the truth let alone speaking it. However, that said those I have met and know all seem like thoroughly decent people? So where did it go wrong?
Bragging rights
Still alive despite playing rugby at school until I was 16. Unlike football atleast the violence was kept on the pitch.
