143 Jess Kaur & Krupa Pattani: The Post Office Horizon IT Scandal and "Mr Bates Vs The Post Office"

The Post Office Horizon IT Scandal represents the biggest single series of wrongful convictions in British legal history. Brought to life in the hit ITV series "Mr Bates vs. The Post Office", the story hit the headlines in early 2024 and at the time of publication is the subject of a major public inquiry.

Faulty equipment and computer software made it look as though money was missing from post office branch accounts and the sub-postmasters’ contracts held them personally liable. More than 900 were prosecuted, many went to prison and many others were financially ruined.

142 The Unlock Moment Box of Keys #25: There Are Always Multiple Paths

The other day it was my huge honour to deliver the commencement address at the University College London (UCL) MBA Graduation.

Sitting in the front row and wearing my university robes for the first time in 20 years, I was humbled to hear from the graduating students how much they had sacrificed to complete their studies over four years alongside busy day jobs.

I talked about how my deepest underlying sense of purpose is about finding freedom...

140 The Unlock Moment Box of Keys #24: We Have No Time To Stand And Stare

Many years ago, when I was studying medicine and going through some challenging times, I took solace in poetry. I had never been the kind of person to study literature when I was growing up, but I set myself the challenge of learning some poems and I would go out for evening walks and recite the poetry to myself.

I can’t recite them from memory any more, but I remember one that always made me reflect. It’s by the Welsh poet William Henry Davies and it’s called “Leisure”.

Years on, I think this poem...

There are an estimated 1 billion meetings held every day somewhere on this planet.
