Odds and ends

A few bits worth a read...

Great piece by Roger Bootle on pay. "The structure is a worthy subject, the smart people say, because a bad structure may encourage inappropriate risk–taking and result in people receiving significant rewards for "performance" which turns out to be illusory. The level of pay has no such relevance and should be left to "the market"." How many times have I heard this argument over the years... and as he says, Walker has just ducked the issue again.

Two critical takes on the Tory 'white paper' published today. Alphaville (via Duncan) and Citywire.

Finally, Tom Freeman explodes a sickening conspiracy in the world of football.
