Our favourite and most read (non-covid) stories of 2021. From a busted Billionaire and independent media turmoil to killer croissants and Chinese (and Government) spy scandals. From depressing abortion tragedies to inflating prices. From increasing foreign residents to border bedlam these are just some of the many stories we brought to you during 2021.
We have ignored the myriad stories about variants, lockdowns and anti-vaxidiots if only because there is more to life than any one thing. Below is our selection of just some of the other things. There are lots more in our archives.
The Digest team would like to wish our readers and their families the very best for 2022 and add a special thanks and acknowledgement to all in the frontline of hospitals and Żabka’s who made life a little better for all of us.
