Last week the Adam Smith Institute linked to a piece I did advocating greater understanding and use of markets in dealing with our housing crisis. Today I see The Guardian has linked to my piece pointing out the heroically overspun Blairite approach to hospital closures.

I suppose what they have in common is hostility to Mr. Blair.

Mind you, good to see that Liberalism can be attractive to people across the British political spectrum...

Could be that the ASI is simply liberal in the classical sense and that there are one or two liberal (in the classical sense) hold outs at the Guardian. Was founded by Cobbett, amongst others, after all.

Yes Tim , that ought to be true, although I was speaking with Eamonn Butler a couple of days ago and we were able to agree that no sane Liberal could agree with The Guardian's Polly Toynbee... :-)
