Very impressed by this blog review from “Skuds”, who’s extended the review he wrote for Amazon Vine.
This quote is particularly good:
As soon as a minister admits that some new policy didn’t work he will find himself on the move at the next re-shuffle, after being held to ridicule by the media and probably branded a flip-flopper and accused of a U-turn. If they stick to their opinions in the face of very obvious failure they will be praised as a ‘conviction politician’.
I wonder where we would be if ‘conviction chemists’ were similarly praised, or ‘conviction doctors’? We would probably be treating common ailments with blood-letting and trepanning still.
