The oldest trick in the book of tatty British industry. When times turn tough, find anyone who’s been caught innovating, and sack them. Hence the Obscurer gets rid of Simon Caulkin’s management column, part of their generally excellent business section’ s highly reliable opinion page with William Keegan. But I suppose it leaves more space for high-gloss shoe adverts and diatribes from Nick Cohen.
I’m not saying, I’m just saying, but if you had a broadly left-libertarian magazine or Web site, he would be an excellent choice to contribute. Chris Dillow can’t do it all.
