    Analysing The Economy

    With the recent General Election gradually fading from most people’s minds it is the economy that is now taking much more public attention especially here in central London. The short-term economic outlook looks less rosy. The picture for the housing market is very flat, consumer spending has reduc…

    Smiling Amongst The Election Showers

    Electioneering is a serious business but like all important matters there is always time for humour and fun. With the British weather the way it was this April and May all election candidates and activists had to learn a lot of humour to survive the regular drenchings from seasonal showers over the …

    The General Election

    Make no mistake, May’s election result represents little more than a stand still for the Conservatives. The Party may desperately scramble for crumbs of comfort at the outcome ? true we now hold 197 seats but secured a mere 33.1% of the UK vote. Whichever way you look at it, this amounts to the Tori…

    A Vision For London

    1 London – a city like no other London is a global city. Its outstanding success is based on its unique diversity – a rich mix of people, innovation and energy, which has served London so well over the two thousand years since its foundation.

    Improving Healthcare In 2005

    Contrary to its cheerleaders’ increasingly desperate claims, Britain’s National Health Service is not the envy of the world. Evidence enough for this proposition is in the number of British people who choose (and pay twice over to exercise that choice) to have private healthcare. Many others choose to go abroad for their treatment. On the […]

    This Parliamentary Life

    How is it that some politicians emerge in a blaze of glory and then fade away very quickly, whilst others emerge more slowly but appear to have real staying power? It is certainly funny how even in a relatively long parliamentary life (compared to the much shorter shelf life of people in sport for …

    The Tsunami Earthquake

    The tsunami earthquake and disaster at the end of Boxing Day showed that in times of real crisis the community of nations has the capacity to work closely together and global conflict and disagreements can be put to one side. The plight of so many people in the Asian countries has been very well re…

    Leadership

    I love cricket. This winter’s success by the English cricket team in South Africa (the first Test series win there for 40 years) has bought great pleasures to all us cricket supporters. Someone I am sure will write a book about the series and I hope they will write it with some insight into the […]

    The State Of The Nhs

    Medical care in this country is failing to meet adequately the needs of the people of this country. Contrary to its cheerleaders’ increasingly desperate claims, Britain’s National Health Service is not the envy of the world. Evidence enough for this proposition is in the number of British people w…
