On a lighter note, is it wrong that I call my twin 10yr old boys Beavis and Butthead? It’s accurate, given all they do is laugh stupidly. But maybe not appropriate.

annual conference Boris committed to being firmly pro-enterprise. Let’s use that to form a business-govt partnership that takes on the challenges of climate, reskilling and regional inequalities. Oh, and an end to rolling cliff edges.

Ahh the faint whiff of workout is slowly drifting away, replaced by the heady excitement of ballot counting. Now that’s election coverage.

right on - rediscover respect for truth, not messages that confirm what we want to believe. Children on floors, checks at borders, avoiding costs on state control...all rely on influential people more concerned with spreading winning messages than fact

Feels like coverage is sharpening in the last week of election. Proud that ⁦⁩ is recognised as one of the few orgs brave enough to speak truth to power. Interesting that in ST we are accused of being both loud and too quiet tho.

Absurd to suggest hasn’t been consistently vocal about the damage many of labour’s policies could do. Just as we have about the damage of a no deal brexit.

Network Rail to blame for 60% of train delays So apart from the massive cost and distraction of nationalisation, there is no reason to think it will improve service. It didn’t last time, either: ‘British Rail, we’re getting there’ wouldn’t wash now.

would never be so inarticulate 😏 But are clear that significantly increasing the burden on biz - whether through tax, regulation or other state interventions - will damage growth. And that damages UKs ability to tackle inequality. Thriving biz + good govt = progress.
