This is a good blog and well worth keeping an eye on; he spots some interesting stories. Peter links, in my post below, to an article he has written highlighting just how insane the printing union was. Bill Bryson's description of his time there is equally amazing. These people were literally telling their employers how many they needed to employ and at what rates and huge numbers were just not doing any work at all.

He has another, brilliant post, here about the sheer weakness in the performance of green investments. When people tell you that it's worth Britain investing in green technologies as it will make a positive return show them that post. Maybe the market is wrong but historically it has been a far better predictor of the returns to investment than government.
