    Congratulations to Mark. He has been a strong advocate of free markets and free societies for as long as I have known him and I know that he will bring dedication and commitment to his work at the IEA.

    I just wonder how his colleagues will get on, working for a Europhile!

    Congratulations to Mark and to the IEA. This is an excellent appointment which will hopefully restore the IEA as a leading institution in the battle of ideas and for liberty.

    Tom – IEA staff, authors and supporters hold a wide range of views on Europe. The recent IEA monograph, The European Institutions as an Interest Group, which was featured in the FT, argued for radical reform of the EU rather than its dissolution.

    A fair point, Richard. I stand corrected.

    Mr. Littlewood was very rude and ill-informed on BBC today. He made not one valid point, rudely interrupted the other speaker and was clearly displaying how economic crises occur in the first place: people with money don’t listen, don’t care and do not want to understand the human ramifications of their decisions. Narrow minded and dim, he should not be let out on public television again until he has something useful to say.

    Hussain,

    Mr littlewood is never rude and to say he is ever ill-informed is redicuous. I will concede that he can come across as forceful when he is being interviewed, but i applaud his style. For too long this country has been run as a sort of quasi-socialist state, with more services run by the state then china at the height of the communist party. We need more people with Mr Littlewoods passion for free markets in the public domain. The country needs to have a long hard look in the mirror, and decide once and for all wether we are a free market functioning capitalist society, or a horribly accurate depiction of the world that Ayn Rand delivered with Atlas Shrugged in 1957.

    “redicuous”, “wether” “Littlewoods” instead of “Littlewood’s”, you’re obviously intellectually deficient, as is Mark Littlewood. He’s just a right-wing [expletive deleted by moderator] who’s spent his entire life in politics and has no experience of real life, or any trace of compassion. No doubt you are the same.
