This means that it will be extremely difficult for British households to spend on non-essential items in the year ahead, including everything from personal computers to socialising and nights out on the town.

Clickdrive is hoping to change that.
“After experiencing issues with my own car, I was personally inspired to create a solution to the lack of data available on my car,” says former Lehman Brothers trading systems designer and Clickdrive founder Mark Sutheran. “Wifi and highspeed networks have become ubiquitous, but why aren’t our cars taking advantage of the situation?”
