- 227. Should governments seek the centre ground? | John Redwood's Diary
All those who claim to be wise in politics tell you that a leader and his party must seek the centre ground to be successful. In one sense this is obvious,if it means that a party may have to extend its coalition of support well beyond its comfort zone, its original idea or heartlands in order to construct a winning majority.There are, however, at least two major flaws in the proposition that a party should always seek the centre ground. The first has been pointed out by those who think instead a party should seek the common ground. It may be that the centre ground is not as popular as some ground to the right or left that is much more popular. These advisers say the leader should seek out that common ground, and not worry if it is to the right or left in common parlance. What matters is to satisfy majority opinion, or build a wider coalition of support for popular policies.The second flaw is that the party and the country may not be starting out from somewhere near the centre. A winning party may inherit a situation where the centre has been wrenched to the left or the right as conventionally described. To get back to the true or mean centre ground may require a sharp move to right or left, depending on the starting position.

- 228. Open letter to the new DG of the BBC
Dear DG, Congratulations on your appointment. You have a great job and an important task. Many of us are proud of the best of the BBC, and agree that much of its programming produces good quality entertainment and interesting debate. Some of your critics come from both the political “right” and the political “ left”, claiming that the BBC has institutional bias against their parties.

- 229. Ken Livingstone's spending plans would cost every London council tax payer £348 | Left Watch @ ConHome
A new report released today by the Back Boris campaign reveals the impact every family in London will face if Ken Livingstone was to win this May's mayoral election - £348 in council tax increases, and an increase in the Congestion Charge.The report, entitled "Can't Afford Ken", notes that Livingstone has made 24 spending promises that cost more money than is in the budget. These spending commitments have been made either in public speeches or in documents after he was selected as Labour’s candidate. They include a transport fare cut, a pledge to replace the withdrawn EMA scheme, a London-wide lettings agency, an "Air Quality Improvement Fund", a "Cinema Discount Card" for young people, and, bizarrely, a party in Trafalgar Square just for the Portuguese-speaking diaspora.

- 230. D-minus for economics, Cardinal | Roger Helmer MEP
Prime Minister David Cameron is facing huge criticism on many fronts. Never mind pasties and the Granny Tax. He’s failing to deliver a growth strategy, or to adopt the revenue-neutral or low-cost measures that would boost the economy, like lower employment taxes or deregulation. He seems to have no policy on the EU. His response to perverse rulings under the ECHR is supine. His “green” energy policies threaten to undermine both our energy security and our economic competitiveness. He’s getting it wrong on immigration, on defence, on foreign aid.So it takes a really special kind of misjudgement for a senior churchman to criticise Cameron for one of the few things he’s getting right. Cardinal Keith O’Brien has attacked the Prime Minister for “helping the rich and letting the poor suffer”. He wants higher taxes and more redistribution. All the failed nostrums of socialism seem like compassionate common sense to this gilded prelate. He’s wrong.The Cardinal seems unaware, or unconcerned, that the top 1% of tax payers already contribute 27% of revenues.

- 232. It's still the economy stupid | John Redwood's Diary
Yesterday in Parlliament the Leader of the Opposition could hardly wait to get through a couple of questions on the economy, to get on to the issue that fascinates the political and media classes – themselves. The latest revelations about the relationships between the Murdoch media and the present government caused the downfall of a Special Adviser. They leave the Culture Secretary making the rogue adviser defence, saying that his Adviser said and did things he should not have done, but they were unauthorised by his boss. The Leveson Enquiry is likely to find that the relationships between politicians of both main parties and the Murdoch press have been close, with both parties competing for favourable coverage and backing. As far as the public is concerned, they want an economic recovery and want more attention on jobs, savings, and prices.The age of spin has encouraged the strange idea that a party or an individual can maintain a good press whatever the reality of their actions and their consequences.

Francis Maude risked further embarrassment for the Government last night after boasting that the Coalition wanted to turn Britain into a ‘tax haven’.The embattled Cabinet Office minister said it would be a ‘compliment’ if Britain were seen as a place where foreigners or businesses paid little or no tax.His remarks will undermine claims by the Prime Minister and the Chancellor that the Coalition is cracking down on tax avoidance.

- 234. Mr Cameron asks good questions on welfare reform
Mr Cameron’s speech this week on welfare reform was a thoughful and important contribution to the debate about the future direction of welfare policy.He acknowledges that welfare accounts for almost £1 in every £3 the government spends. He rightly wishes to be generous to those in need through disability or ill fortune. He also wishes to promote work as the best kind of welfare for most people of working age. He identifies many of the perverse incentives in the system.

- 235. George Osborne Autumn Statement: Heresy, perhaps, but taxes MUST be cut | Mail Online
SIMON HEFFER: George Osborne has avoided cutting taxes because he fears it would send out the wrong message politically. The alternative, however, is ruin.Things are so bad for a number of reasons. First, a toxic combination of excessive state and private borrowing (fuelled by cheap credit) and badly-regulated banks brought the crash of 2008.Second, the reckless spending policies of the last government piled up an unsustainable mountain of debt which this government, to its credit, has tried to bring under control.

- 236. Greek government legitimacy | John Redwood's Diary
The “wise heads” of the EU establishment think the Greek New Democracy (Conservative light) party should join forces with Pasok (Socialist light) party yet again in coalition and carry on with business as usual. These parties were rejected by two thirds of the Greek electors. What part of “No” does the EU establishment not understand? Once again they do not get this democracy idea. The two parties themselves decided not to undertake this task, but more negotiations lie ahead.Yesterday morning I listened to a Greek commentator saying the people had elected a Parliament of clowns and worse. He objected fiercely to the people not knuckling down and voting for candidates who were prepared to tell them that the European dream meant the continuing reality of austerity in the form of ever higher taxes and further attempted reductions in state spending. He should understand that the people voted as they did because they think the Euro dream has become a nightmare, and they want change.

- 237. Should I have loved the Swedish model?
In the late 1980s and early 1990s people used to tell me that Sweden proved you could have high public spending and economic success. There was no need to keep public spending as a percentage of output down as they did then in the US, no need to go in for raw capitalism like America. I was urged to love the Swedish model.As often with these things just as people urged others to follow, the weaknesses of the chosen example were about to become plain. In 1992 the Swedish crisis started. It all looks very familiar. It was a combination of an Irish/ Spanish style property crash and banking crisis, and a state finance crisis all rolled into one.

The Euro fix is a proposal for a Treaty change to make Euro area countries borrow less. Apparently if they do not comply they will be fined. The fines, I assume, will be paid for out of extra loans advaced to these countries by the EU, or perhaps the IMF!
