I tried explaining how I thought discussing new ideas was far more important than talking about who is up or down in the political arena. His expression, however, told me that he wasn't impressed, so I decided not to tell him about the number of very positive calls and emails I have received over the past few months welcoming the ideas I have written about so far.

He may not be too happy with this week's contribution as I want to again focus on a new idea aimed at getting the country back to prosperity rather than rehashing the political events of the week -- even though there were some significant ones, not least the publication of the Saville Report and British Prime Minister David Cameron's absolute and unambiguous acceptance of its findings.
