Andrew Neil blog: welcome to my new home

Andrew Neil A new home for a familiar face on the BBC News site

Welcome to my new page on the BBC News website.

All of my future blogs will be in this format in the new-style BBC news pages.

But I will continue to blog about the world of politics from here at the home of the Daily Politics and This Week, here in Westminster.

Come back soon, or watch out for announcement of new posts on the Daily Politics twitter page.

If you want to go back into the archives, all my old posts can still be read at my former blog site

And join me most weekday lunchtimes on the Daily Politics on BBC Two, and Thursday evenings on This Week, when Parliament is sitting.

    overweight people are to-be taxed on food they eat, other people eat the same food so why drag us with this tax, they must look after them selves & mind how they eat.

    Well done Catch22, where would we all be without you? Where are we, just the same?
    Riots spread from channel to channel, from tweet to tweet and from UK to England and back again. Insurgent, Rebel, disaffected youth. Serial violence now comes in a Variety pack...To Coco-Pop or not to Coco-Pop. That has been the question.
    71 characters remaining? There should be a counter-tray for all this...

    surely it is time to repeat the final lines of the Tennyson poem Ulysses...

    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    In respect of the financial crisis now enveloping the planet...the First Great Global would seem that too many experts have ceased 'to strive, to seek, to find', they have yielded.

    there is still this appalling suggestion that the cure to all of our ills is to keep interest rates low, and print more money (Quantitative Easing). This is just so wrong, asset values must be allowed to fall, wages must continue to fall, interest rates must rise, amd taxes must rise. This might to some to be harsh, it is meant to be. We must not fear deflation. Somebody must get a grip.

    Apparently the worst joke at the Edinburgh Festival was by Paul Daniels :-

    "I said to a fella 'Is there a B&Q in Henley?' He said 'No, there's an H, an E, an N an L and a Y'."

    I would say that it could be mine for any country on the planet...'Government...what government...did you not realise that there is no f in government'...
