The 100 Year Plan

What we do know is that actions from 100 years ago have changed the landscape of our world beyond recognition โ€“ and thatโ€™s exactly our intention with the 100 year plan for UKBlackTech. That in 100 years time, the world should NOT be the same, that the difference made was by design rather than default.
