Taxes and red tape drive wealthy from Britain – Telegraph.

Personally, I think that the gloss has come off David Cameron, George Osborne and their Notting Hill friends.

Although a life-time Tory supporter, I increasingly question why I am favouring Ed Balls on stimulating economic growth?

So it’s hard to avoid a sense of despair. Rather than admit that they’ve been wrong, European leaders seem determined to drive their economy — and their society — off a cliff. And the whole world will pay the price.

Regular readers of this blog know that I strongly endorse Paul Krugman’s view here.

Are Europe’s leaders genuinely blind or do they have a death wish?
