Here we go again...


Principles or income? Hmmm.

Given the re-election of the Tories and the news flow I am going to have to seriously consider re-establishing the mortgage arranging bit of my business. There will be money to be made. At least I know that we will do it right.

But really, dude, WTF?

Go for it, just make sure you've ticked all the boxes so you don't get dragged into mis-selling claims.

I don't feel bad about vocally opposing opera subsidies while getting cheap tickets. It's been decided that we all have a right to that subsidy, that includes me having a right to that subsidy.

But my opposition also requires systemic change though. I lose my opera subsidy, but people who like modern art and athletics also have to lose theirs.

It's a bit like NIMBYs. They're only people acting within the incentives. And most of their critics are just as self-interested as NIMBYs. They want the utility value of a dual-carriageway or recycling centre without reasonably compensating the people who have to put up with it.
