Yesterday, as Starmer took on Raab for the first time at a mostly virtual PMQs, the Yorkshire Post printed my essay – featured in this blog – regarding the pros and cons of having a solicitor as de facto PM. After that, the paper requested another article about the failing Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan – a scheme which will go down in infamy.
Here is the printed version and here is the link.
As pleasing as it is, to have a well-known media outlet publish my essay, it does not make the content any more valid. A Stoic philosophy obsessive like me shouldn’t welcome praise when it was not deserved, nor feel lousy when unfairly criticised. Most of these blogs will not be printed elsewhere, but you – the reader – should judge them on their own merits.
