Polly, more Polly and something quite bizarre. previousThe Guardian and TesconextBut we know this already 4 thoughts on “Timmy Elsewhere” JH September 16, 2008 at 1:18 pm Of course those extra ‘bin taxes’ aren’t actually extras at all. The pilot incentive schemes to which the article is referring have to be ‘revenue neutral’ so that for every loser there is a corresponding winner. So not necessarily that bizarre at all. Cleanthes September 16, 2008 at 3:37 pm Do we assume therefore that neither Polly, nor even more Polly, are quite bizarre? ;-p Brit_in_Aussie September 17, 2008 at 2:21 am “About time we changed rulers perhaps?” No. General Elections should not be called for something so frivolous. Are you deliberately trying to undermine what remains of the UK’s democratic system or is this some kind of running joke?

Anyway: according to the stats, manufacturing output has remained static while the number of people employed doing it has fallen from 21% to 13%. So we have the same productivity (the thing we want) while we have fewer people thus employed (which we also want). A 60% per-capita improvement in manufacturing productivity could only be a bad thing in a world as mad as Polly Toynbee’s. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
