Many stories in politics and business this week, but all are covered better elsewhere (see my many links for better coverage than the MSM).
I have 3 themes to which have often returned to over the past 6 months. The pension crisis, the inflation fallacy of the government and its poor economic management and the risk to our economy of unregulated private equity.
There is another to add, linked to the pensions crisis. This is the closure of 2500 post offices by the government.
This is a theme I will build on from now until May, it is bound up with many other issues and so there is much depth to the story.
However, the main accusation I make is one of pure political cynicism on the part of the government. They know this is a hot potato and very controversial so when have they decided to announce these closures? After an extended consultation...which happens to be the day after the Local Elections on May 3.
After the heat maps scandal of last year, we should expect no less. What a an indictment of the government's confidence in itself that it has to behave in this way.
Oh, Darling how could you!
