This is not the time to give up

I was told by an academic I respect that they’d had enough of Brexit yesterday.

I understand the sentiment. I also understand on that basis why […]

I wrote this for one of the organisations I am associated with yesterday with regard to the Spending Review and thought it worth sharing here: One would think a spending review has very little to do with tax. The logic is that spending is the opposite side of the revenue cycle from tax. But that’s […]

Is Cummings as clever as he thinks?

I was having a discussion with someone yesterday, who shall remain nameless, who I would consider a shrewd political thinker.We were discussing the events of the last twenty-four hours or so and considering whether or not Johnson and Cummings (BoriDom as I now think of them) had played a shrewd hand. The answer was no. […]
