I’ve seen tons of people whose lives were made significantly easier because of parental credit lines which is good for them, but to be fair:

  1. People should disclose what they are receiving.
  2. There should be far more progressive taxation.

Changing my media diet

I’ve changed my monthly contribution from the Guardian to the Taz.

The Guardian is a bit weird and was not doing that much for me anymore. It’s not clear what they’re about and I’m mostly disappointed in their roster of writers.

Taz, I only read occasionally but they’re local (with an office that is practically next to my house) and they’re a lot more left-wing than the Guardian is.

I haven’t found many good alternative newspapers other than the FT which is ridiculously expensive.
