I know Mark, a bit. We have done radio together for more than a decade. I spoke at the IEA once, a long time ago, although the BBC arranged it. I know a little bit about him as a result, beyond that which you might pick up from the press.
I have to say that I have seen no evidence, at all, that he would add value to the House of Lords.
Given the ‘Tater’s perspicacity that makes Littlewood an absolute shoo in, doesn’t it?
Also, it’s unlikely that he’ll lower the standard of economics in a House that contains Prem Sikka. But then the same is true of my footstool too…..
