Article published on July 06, 2016 05:09pm

 

In the wake of Brexit, it’s safe to say the UK has been feeling a tad disoriented. Political parties have been thrown into turmoil; there’s uncertainty about future of trade and movement; and the economy doesn’t know which way is up.

But what does it mean for us, the average bingo-lover?
 

So, in case you missed it... Brexit happened.

But yes, someone needs to take responsibility for ensuring that our data continues to be well protected… the UK government perhaps. Let’s just see how it goes.

Basically, in the short term, there will be no change to speak of...
