What the A level fiasco has proven is that we have a government that has two fundamental qualities. The first is that it can both create and then exacerbate crises. And the second, is that it is utterly clueless as to what to do about them.
This coming from the man who insists that government should have more power over our lives. And no, he never has identified a system or practice of government that does better. He’s simply incapable of understanding that the reasoning in favour of markets is not their theoretical beauty but their advantage over government by the sort of fuckwits who get to succeed in politics.
