    This is an area of employment law that I do not know well. As a result, I was lost in the first 10 minutes or so because: 1. I didn't know the Jargon; and 2. the government action distinction eluded me.

    I thought it was pretty good, especially the section on BREXIT.

    Very good content, interesting and timely.
