Athens and London? The power of positive politics is very evident in Greece. Curiously, the surprise appointment of David Cameron as UK Foreign Secretary might just hint at a positive outcome for the UK if it triggers a proper discussion on Brexit failure and our relationship with Europe.
Reverse Big Bang is coming, rising Political and Geopolitical tension, and Higher Energy Costs… Anyone for the last few choc ice?
There is a crisis brewing – things are likely to get worse before they get better on the back of Political Dither, a Reverse Big Bang in the City of London, and the Escalation of the Middle East crisis threatens higher energy costs and inflation!
The Tough Times will pass - how do you then create an economy that balances Growth and Prosperity, Politics and Justice, the Environment and Business, Wealth and Equality. Could it be as simple as setting the right interest rate?
The UK is focused on all the wrong things – as the economy stumbles towards disaster, we’re fixated on sleaze. The Chancellor thinks he can fix it by directing the financial sector, confirming how little he knows about the City.
Strip away all the political nonsense, the decaying infrastructure, even Brexit, and the real issue to solve at the core of the UK’s multiple problems is the National Health Service. Solve that, reboot it and relaunch it, and everything else may fit back into place. Its worth a try.
As we wait for The Bank of England to address the latest inflation miss – consider Pencil Complexity Theory, Cucumber Inflation Modelling and why Wimbledon will be Hell this year.
The widening gulf in the outlook for the US and UK economies is stark. UK housing and the mortgage markets are a rising threat – but maybe we are looking at the all the wrong things as the Climate Crisis (oh, yes, remember that) comes back into focus.
Around the globe, businesses are wondering about doing business in the UK – the headlines don’t support it. Uncertainty is contributing to domestic inflation, and the sense things need to change. It could even get worse ahead of a new government – which will still face crisis!
By some freakish temporal rift, a Morning Porridge from 10-years in the future was delivered into my email box last week – describing the monumental political and economic events of the last decade… Freaky eh? Who would expect such a thing…? It happens…
Note to Sir Keir Starmer: Clarkson’s Farm and the Hamble Quarry demonstrate how Bureaucracy is killing UK Growth
Labour Leader Keir Starmer has announced growth is a core mission for the next UK government. He should look how Clarkson’s Diddley Squat Farm and the threat to obliterate my village of Hamble with a wholly unnecessary gravel quarry demonstrate how the UK’s local planning and over-regulation stifles growth, hope, and expectations. The process isn’t fit for any purpose. Bureaucrats have anything but the interests of local people in mind. Big money walks all over them.
