This is very sad, imagine people that needs the passport to renew their stay, they now face the risk of overstaying because UKVI won't take passport unavailability as excuse.

Na to stage protest o

I Don call all d number dey get on der website tired and also email the address they have on the page. After my collection date, have been going to the embassy more than thrice. Standing outside for mire than 4hrs. The 2 staff/security at the entrance will just tell applicant to be going home that the passport will b produced. They treat people lyk animals and that's why people keep smashing der official cars.

Making more money I guess 🥹🥹.
I was lucky enough to max out my LISA. Got started in January.

I’m sure with enough time one could put more to Stocks & shares ISA . Doing the math one just need to put aside 1667/mo on average to meet up.

You too like money matters grin

Still into Tbills and property in Nigeria?

Just to highlight: The 4K LISA benchmark is part of the 20K ISA allowance every tax year. So, once you've saved 4k in LISA, you'll only be allowed 16K more across other ISA products.

Absolutely! The dominant contest is with AI and tech in general.

Had a discussion with the heads IT operations and governance for a leading insurance group in the UK and I marvel at the disruptive impact AI is going to have on people's work. Companies are massively investing in automation and cutting out human interventions.

One thing I know is humans will evolve and survive.


Aptly put! The disruption is serious and there seems to be nothing stopping it, at least for now. Most industries and organisations that are hitherto against AI automation are now accepting it. Even one of Google's most recent updates said it's no longer against AI generated content, so long it gives value to readers.

Microsoft, apart from its billion dollars investment in ChatGPT for its search engine, is also rolling out designer Microsoft, which will significantly disrupt the graphics designing industry.

And like you said, we'll just have to keep evolving and reinventing ourselves. This has come to stay and like a friend once said, any organisation that's not thinking of incorporating AI into their business operations will soon find themselves left behind and possibly out of business.

On a different note, can ANPR detect someone driving with just provisional license and has not taken the practical driving test yet?

Guys who has a resource for calculating inflation.
For example. Is it worth saving in cash lisa for many years? How do u know if that money will be worth what its meant to be worth after those year due to inflation?

I need better recourse that teaches inflation mathematically.

I learnt today that if you want to use your car, you should not drive there alone with provisional licence, someone has to join/drive you there. Try to find out about this.

Good question. It depends on your age which tells how long you wanna keep it invested, the interest rate your provider offers, unpredictable future inflation, tax-relief, opportunity costs, etc. Moneybox, for instance, gives about 3.3% so with the Government one-off 25%, you should be fine for a while cos you'd be effectively getting over 4% excluding the 25%, so in 5 years, you might be averaging double digits! But in 10 years, the yield might drop to 7% average.

For me, I might use it for house deposit and then contribute in my 40s in a Stocks and Shares LISA if it's possible.
