Quotes

Clinical psychologist Tanya Byron said: "It is very easy to trivialise 'small talk' as tedious and time wasting, but in fact taking the time to have meaningful but minimal interactions is very important."
"Of the positive sub-components of the overall index, most notable was the vehicle sales index, which expanded by 36,1 points, following record vehicle sale levels in the month of February."
"Our citizens living overseas should be made to feel valued. That is an essential prerequisite for encouraging them to vote" the report concluded
"Additionally, it makes sense to change the duration of the National Development Plans from five years to six years so as to coincide with two full Medium Term Expenditure Framework periods, so as to allow budgeting to align with development plan cycles."
