Confessions of a Young Think-Tanker

Westminster tube commuters are currently greeted with advertisements for Think Tank: The Story of the Adam Smith Institute“. The book is the story of how a handful of motivated individuals, without any backing or resources except their own conviction, managed to create a think-tank which played a key role in the transformation of the country. One anecdote that is missing from the book is the tale of an intern once employed in the mid-80s, before the interweb, to stuff envelopes. After a day of stuffing envelopes the book’s author Madsen Pirie decided to give the teenage intern a lesson in practical economics. “Here at the ASI kiddo we believe in applying free-market principles, so why don’t you name a fair price for your labour, if it is too high we won’t hire you again and if it is too low, well that will be your loss…”

The intern hesitated and thought for a moment before responding “£100 please”. Madsen was a bit taken aback, “£100 for an afternoon’s envelope stuffing?” Nevertheless he wrote the cheque paying way over the market price daily rate for an intern in the 80s. That intern never worked at the Adam Smith Institute again. Guido really didn’t like stuffing envelopes…

Guido’s Daily Star Sunday Column Now Online

Guido was a little unnerved by the high praise coming from Peter Preston in the Guardian, he described “the Daily Star Sunday’s signing of Guido Fawkes” as “the best tabloid move of the week.” We couldn’t agree more.

Half a million people read it in print yesterday, and you can now read the blog’s Sunday column online here.

Boris tells Standard he is going to break Bob Crowe…

“I don’t want to sound confrontational but if there’s going to have to be a fight over this then I’m the person that can do it.”

Yellow Peril

There have been plenty of disturbances in the coalition force this weekend. Clegg and Laws’ calls for faster tax cuts for the less well off were slapped down by the Chancellor yesterday, but that is far from the only hotspot. Not only are the LibDem Peers agitating on the Health Bill again this morning, but a blast from the past – ousted LibDem CEO Lord Renard, has popped up in Guardian to stir things up:

“…a major preoccupation for Tory strategists remains keeping the Lib Dems in the coalition until 2015… This would be part of a grand plan to ensure that the Conservative domination of the 20th century is followed by Conservative hegemony in the 21st.”

He seems highly sceptical of the Boundary Reviews, which reminded Guido of Matthew Oakeshott’s important point on the Sunday Politics yesterday. He told Philip Davis that if the Tory right voted against Lords reform, then they would be fighting the next election on the old boundaries:

This one is going to get messy…

Ken’s Column Conundrum

After his tax hypocrisy was called out over the weekend, Ken has played another blinder this morning. He’s just strolled over to Downing Street to deliver a letter to the Prime Minister demanding that London Mayors are only allowed “one job”. While you would expect any opponent to try to make a hay out of Boris’ Telegraph column, you have to wonder why Ken didn’t do more to stop London Mayors having more than one job during his own time in office. Was it something to do with him spending over a year as a working MP for Brent East as well as Mayor? Or was it that column he, like with Boris in the Telegraph, himself had in the Indy…

German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedric lets slip, suggesting Greece should be given:

Quote of the Day

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
