Good that BEIS is consulting on these proposals. Though, the £120 limit on banning exclusivity clauses is on the low-side for sure.

UK's net zero climate target implies 43% of UK's car fleet to be electric by 2030. Big change. We're going to need A LOT more charging points. Everywhere.

The end of the population pyramid. If Italy has a population ice cream by 2050, what does the UK have?.........

How do you like your research in the morning? We like it spelled out in a detailed policy document exploring the problems the Law Family Commission on Civil Society seeks to solve () - but also summarised in a 30 second video.

This map makes an increasingly forgotten point: everywhere has more covid now than in the summer. The current debate - "shire district county has less covid than inner city area and so should be in Tier 1" - is totally missing this crucial point. Levels matter here.

HMT confirms what we all knew - public spending higher this year relative to GDP than ever before outside wartime.

Don't want to. Definitely wouldn't want to imagine the outcome if veggie takeaway was chosen to avoid overspend on unnecessary meat consumption.

Quite unbelievable really that Hancock has to defend spending £50k on providing food for staff working late in a pandemic. £50k. When, for example, we've spent c. £20bn on a self-employed income support scheme that is still v poorly targeted.

I would be angry if the government hadn't done this.

I agree with you, its core to the politics of levelling up. Not necessarily to actually achieving a levelled up country.

And finally, let's not leave 6 million low-income households waiting till after Christmas to hear if they are going to lose or keep the £1,000 income boost that the increase in UC has provided. Chancellor should confirm it will be extended on Wednesday.

On capital spending, core to levelling up, we're looking out for if history will or won't repeat itself. So many govts in past have found it easier to cut capital spending in downturns. This is obviously a bad idea. But politically it can be easier than day-to-day spending cuts.
