Debt advisory update
OK, it’s a been a little while since our last “Three Things About Debt”. There’s been quite a lot on – and every time we sat down to write, there was a change in government policy, Chancellor or monarch. We won’t dwell much on the new king except that we enjoyed his greeting to Liz Truss this week: “Back again? Dear oh dear”. Here at least, he does speak for us all. In terms of money, the only change will be that Charles will face to the right on coins and notes whereas Elizabeth faced to the left; apparently it alternates for each monarch. Apart from Edward VIII who as ever tried to be different.
But the new king is old news: in a desperate bid to make us nostalgic for Boris Johnson’s competent and efficient government, Liz Truss has done more U-turns than when I tried to drive around Granada.
I’ve written a few drafts of this over the past couple of weeks but news just kept happening. This time I’m just going to get it out, safe in the knowledge that this government will generate something else for us to write about next.
