I'm afraid I immediately associate the word 'Creative' with 'Accounting'... hence trickery and fraud.

He'd be better served by 'Imaginative', 'Innovative' or perhaps 'Novel'. Or how about 'Effective'?

Kate. Your continual references to Corbyn are irrelevant. Starmer is the Labour Leader. Perhaps you had not noticed?

Track and Trace is a Government flagship programme. If it contributes nothing, the fault is the government's.

Do you condone the not-so-ancient practice of the PM being passed notes?

Thatcher (and others) used to rely on a colour-coded ring-binder. They could have answered questions, with conviction, in an isolation chamber.

The socially-distanced Commons has thankfully shifted the balance to the PM needing to answer the question, rather than hiding behind his braying hordes.

Yes, for Boris this is a new skill that he will quickly need to learn. Thus far he's flunking it, badly.

"As long as Starmer behaves like a Latin tutor..."

Who might know how a Latin tutor behaves?

Given Boris's continual abject performances since Starmer stepped up to the Dispatch Box, either Boris never had a Latin tutor (which I doubt); or Starmer is not behaving like one; or Boris is incapable of combating a Latin tutor (which is a worry)..

I agree. Kurtzarbeit has been German policy since 2009. It logically sits alongside their worker rights to flexible working, but acknowledges a role (payment) for government (as it constrains both employer and employee). One might even consider it a form of UBI?

Good article (I think). I will apply a damp towel and cogitate.

I agree. But currently 'relatively clean' UK coal is more expensive to extract than dirty brown lignite.

How would you economically tax the environmental impact?

It is perfectly possible for the UK to produce its own coke, steel and cement… but not under ‘free market’ economics.

If local production would reduce our overall CO2 emissions, then perhaps we should be more willing to abandon free market economics?
