The reason we want democratic control of the economy and fiscal policy is because the choice of theory, is often the choice of outcome. We don’t necessarily want to use the independent Bank of England and the Office of Budget Responsibility’s computer models because they may embed bad theory.
We i.e. @LewDeptLabour might have made a mistake not mandating that Trident is debated at Conference #lab15; one it gives the media the opportunity to say that Jeremy has lost control of conference and secondly, some of the decisions may be taken by next year. Bother!
Seen on my journeys to work this week. Are TFL making more journeys and with hidden fair rises? I though it was checkin, get on, get off, check out and that’s your journey. If they both start and end in Z2, then it’s a single zone ticket. Are they fining you for travelling through Shoreditch High Street on the train? Whitechapel to Hoxton should be a Zone 2 journey and yet you can’t avoid SHS.
And it should be immaterial of carrier! My journey from Canary Wharf to New Cross should be a TFL Z2 journey, what is this pink monstrosity? (I think it’s breaking the journey, between the Tube and London Overground stages.)
I met an old friend at Waterloo this a.m., didn’t spend long, but boy does the 10 minutes make a difference on the journey from their to the City. Sadly, I shall be having to continue to catch that train.
About the Corbyn victory, one reason is that in 2010 we said enough to Blair/Brown New Labour project, but the PLP didn’t listen. They’d best do so this time.
While composing a blog on the weekend, about Corbyn, drones and refugees, it just struck me that New Labour’s “King Herod” strategy was started by Blair and the loss of many Labour MPs in 2005.
Earlier today Jeremy Corbyn was elected as Leader of the Labour Party. 🙂
