Last quote by Aditya Chakrabortty

Our economy is sick – and with next week’s budget, May and Hammond look sure to make it sicker. The obituary for this government was published within days of its birth. Theresa May was a “dead woman walking”, proclaimed former cabinet colleague George Osborne. Thus was a sniggering bully transformed into an acerbic prophet. Who now dares argue with that verdict? Two senior ministers out within a week, two more barely clinging on to their jobs, and an administration that makes no progress, but merely lurches from disaster to catastrophe.feedback

Tax-avoiding elites must be reined in. The Paradise Papers are not about tax. They do not focus on palm-tree islands strewn around the Caribbean. Their implications are not technical but political. What they reflect is something far bigger: the rottenness of democracy, both in Brexit Britain and across much of the west. And headline by headline, they upend the stories peddled to us about why we’re in the mess we’re in.”. In addition, all sources we refer have quoted Aditya Chakrabortty 17 times.

Aditya Chakrabortty quotes

Jun 13 2017 - Goldman Sachs

Unless the political class faces up to our economic failure, there will be no recovery from this crisis. Even as their world came apart, the bankers clung to denial. By August 2007, the flagship hedge fund of Wall Street’s most prestigious firm was tanking fast – and what explanation came from the man at Goldman Sachs? “We were seeing things that were 25-standard deviation moves, several days in a row.” The bank was getting hit by events that were only meant to happen once every 100,000 years – and they were happening every day of the week. Given a choice between blaming their models or reality, Goldman’s bosses held the world at fault.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Labour Party

Most of the Labour leaders I’ve known were compassionate, intelligent and thoroughly uncomfortable in their own skins. Corbyn’s authenticity has won the day. In 1993, just after Labour had suffered its fourth successive election defeat, David Hare wrote a play called The Absence of War. It was about the party, about British socialism, but really it was about the torture of trying to be liked while suspecting you’re unlikeable. As research, Hare had been granted rare access to Neil Kinnock, and his fictional party leader, George Jones, is just as warm and garrulous and politically agonised.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Labour Party

Pundits pretend that Corbyn and May are poles apart. But both understand that the financial crisis changed everything – and a new ideological era is beginning. Seen from a sofa, the world looks very different. And to listen to TV’s sofa pundits is to hear a very different election. They would have you believe that Labour and the Conservatives have rarely been further apart. That voters face “a clear choice” between a hard left and a Brextremist right, the inedible and the unpalatable. Plausible and conventional, it’s a classic sofa argument.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Brexit

Our prime minister is turning this election into a culture war, using the language of the hard right to define the very identity of Britain – and create a one-party UK. Elections come with their own rituals. The big night demands Dimblevision and swingometers and some low-budget jape that presumably sounded good in production meetings. But one thing 8 June won’t be is normal. There is no point in journalists reporting this as a horse race, when all the polls predict a bloodbath. It is futile for specialists to pick apart policy promises made in spring 2017 when the next few years’ haggling over Brexit will upend everything from the safeguards on the food we eat to our relations with other countries.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Refugees

The politicians lining up to condemn the Croydon attack created the current climate of intolerance. Two weeks ago a teenager was almost killed for the apparent crime of seeking safety in this country. Reker Ahmed was waiting at a bus stop in south London, when passersby asked where he was from. “They established he was an asylum seeker,” say the police; the 17-year-old was then kicked and punched, his face was smashed in, an eye socket was cracked and his spine was fractured. The mob swelled to 20 or more. Some joined in, others watched.feedback

Mar 09 2017

The party of entrepreneurs increases taxes on them. This budget’s contradictions will come to haunt Theresa May. Theresa May’s politics are at war with her very own policies. What she says is utterly undermined by what she actually does. No matter which way I look at Wednesday’s budget, that is the conclusion I end up at.feedback
