Quote of the day 20th June 2023
"We are stuck in a doom loop. People think all politicians are bad so good people shouldn’t go into it. This is precisely the wrong logic – and if we don’t change, it’ll only get worse."
This was the conclusion of an excellent article by Adam Hawksbee, who is deputy director of the Onward think tank, in City AM,
He points out - correctly - that it has been a bad few weeks for politics, but argues that the only solution is for more good people to stand for office - not to smear anyone who even expresses any interest in politics with the behaviour of the worst.
