Brexit and Airlines

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 08:24:05 +0000

About a week before the UK government triggers Article 50, and the stories are just rolling out about taking control how difficult untangling the UK from the EU is going to be, how much business is going to head across … Continue reading

With Prime Minister May due to trigger Article 50 eight days from now, shit’s about to get real the clock is about to start ticking, not least for the huge financial center in London. Nothing in the present UK government … Continue reading

The Populist Papers: 29 Years of Populism

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 13:58:03 +0000

Thinking about Brexit, the Donald, Austria having a presidential election replay, and other things, it struck me that in a sense I’ve lived through a Populist Era, a parallel history to the official narrative of ever-closer European union and what … Continue reading

Made it through another month

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:03:49 +0000

Headline chasing

IMF note to the G20 meeting in Shanghai in February – The global recovery has weakened further amid increasing financial turbulence and falling asset prices. Activity softened towards the end of 2015 and the valuation of risky assets has dropped sharply, … Continue reading

Ukip’s sinister double bill and failed political leadership

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:33:44 +0000

Until early this year it seemed unlikely that an extreme idea lingering for two decades on the political fringe could turn into a mainstream choice preferred by majority of British voters as happened on June 23. Ukip’s leader Nigel Farage … Continue reading

How many people care about immigration?

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:12:08 +0000

I wrote this for Politico Europe, but they won’t have it, perhaps because it’s not OMG BREXIT enough. To update it, let’s note that Ipsos MORI reckons only 20% care about immigration and more people think they, personally, have benefited … Continue reading
