News that the Royal Institute of British Architects gave the UK Centre for Carnival Arts in Luton one of its awards.
I liked this piece from Olly Grender on the man in the centre of what is likely to be one of the most fascinating political battles of the next couple of years.
“Sarah Teather, the children’s minister, comes across as genuinely passionate about helping children with special needs. So much so that at one point in the interview, she got quite cross.”
David Boyle on one reason why the Merlin agreement between the government and the banks won’t work. This is more evidence for the view that I have held fo a while that ee need to go much further with structural refrom of the banking industry.
If you look for it Vince sort of agrees with David Boyle above on the flaws in Merlin and promises that stronger action may be an option in the future. Less good news is his warning that there is a real potential for a further serious financial crash occuring in the world economy some time in the future.
Praise for a Lib Dem minister under pressure.
