The Tories have an appalling record when it comes to meeting their own targets and delivering on what they promise. For that reason, I was interested to read yesterday that one Government minister is finally waking up (and owning up) to the UK's huge trade problem.

The Government sells the story of its intervention in way that does not frighten businesses. Labour failed at this. Given public opinion and the Government's own actions, it is not the case that 'anti-business' measures are off the agenda but if you are going to do them then there is a need to get the message right.

Osborne's RBS Fire Sale Shows Reform of Britain's Banks Must Come From Within

Osborne is set to announce the fire sale of the public's share in the Royal Bank of Scotland. Since the taxpayers bailed out RBS to the tune of £45billion in 2008, the government have held an 80% share in the bank. This bailout saved the bank from the mismanagement of its own executives, including such luminaries as Fred 'The Shred' Goodwin. You'd be forgiven for believing that seven years on Osborne's sell-off must mean that Britain's banks have been purged of all that led to such bedlam in 2008; deregulation, bloated bonuses, toxic debts and a willingness to gamble money that makes Las Vegas seem puritan. In truth the Chancellor is selling our share in RBS at a massive loss.
