Everything is different today

Maybe not everything, but some* things at least.

On the downside, our new prime minister and her chancellor seem to have tanked the entire economy with their so-called mini-budget last week which cut taxes (marginally for the average person, but at a much higher rate for the wealthy, who are now in line for a windfall to further increase the disparity in incomes and wealth). The Pound is plummeting against other currencies, continuation of high inflation will push up prices further and, if the Bank of England decides to react, there’s likely going to be a significant rise in interest rates that will increase the cost of mortgages and borrowing for members of the public as well as businesses.

On the upside, I heard today that I’ve been successful following the job interview I attended a couple of weeks ago, which I’m very happy about. I wish the country wasn’t taking it’s licks, but I’ll grab a bit of good news where I can.

*Actually many, many things. An uncountable number of things even. But still not everything. Probably.
