A Shameless Plug

A Shameless PlugI would like to recommend that you try to lay your hands on the Spring 2006 edition of O2, the magazine published by O2. It is not available in the shops, but distributed direct to businesses.

Anyhoo, in this edition there is a particularly fine article written against the Nanny State, in which the author (who reserves particular disdain for the Treasury) argues that state interference is throttling business.

The article is lucid, relevant, punchy and well researched.

Oh and by the way, the article is written by me.



  1. ... state interference is throttling business."

    Ahh... but Mr Brown thinks he's done a great job meddling in business (not ever having run one himself I hasten to add!!!).

    Gawd help this country when he becomes PM, although the general populace will, in my opinion, soon realise what a fiddler he really is.

    Everyone seems to assume that Gordon Brown will take Blair's place. This is by no means a foregone conclusion. Now that Prescott has imploded, who is to broker the transition? There are other candidates for the job, and the leadership will be decided by a ballot of the Faithful.

    What's more, one should not assume that this government will survive till 2010. Once the pigeons start coming home to roost it might also implode. It's happened before and could happen again.

    If Brown does get his fat little maulers on the levers of power, he may only turn out to be a Jim Callaghan to Blair's Wilson: a temporary resident who inherits the whirlwind and gets very little for his pains -- except being kicked out of office.

    I hope.

  3. Yes (and my apologies to Bagpuss) my posting does rather assume that Brown will succeed Blair (who I believe is on the way out sooner rather than later, particularly after this past week. It's been like watching feeding time at the zoo!!!).

    And as regards your penultimate paragraph, I just could not agree with it more.
