About

I am former public sector worker, with experience in policy analysis and public finance.

Most of my work was used (or ignored) behind the scenes. My aim here is to publish independent, impartial examinations of public policy issues backed up by rigorous number crunching.

And what’s a “loose minute”? It’s a form of informal communication within government, using short sentences… a bit like a blog. You can look at the Ministry of Defence writing guide for more details.

Feedback is most welcome. Comments left via the contact page will not be published.

Thanks for visiting.
