FT: Fatuous Trots

Hell hath no fury like an elite ignored. Readers wishing to tear their faces off may be interested in reading the latest effort by the FT’s pompous-sounding ‘Editorial Board’. The FT seems to be taking a leaf out of The Economist’s book by imposing anonymity on a growing number of its articles. Not wanting to be held accountable for the piece in question is entirely understandable. The article is titled ‘How to build a more responsible capitalism’. What follows is exactly the sort of squishy, virtue-signalling, socially fashionable bandwagon-squatting that has caused more experienced FT readers to abandon the publication in droves under Lionel ‘Légion d’Honneur’ Barber’s editorship. This correspondent only retains his subscription for the inadvertent comedy value. Low taxes ? Light regulation ? How tasteless.
