Bastiat Prize

Yes, it's yet another admin post, I'm afraid. Your humble Devil is going to plug the International Policy Network's Bastiat Award for online journalism, simply because I liked the email invitation—which I reproduce verbatim—that accompanied the generic email shot... [Emphasis mine.]
Dear Devil

IPN is delighted to announce that this year's Bastiat Prize is now open—including our new $3,000 Online Journalism prize—which individual DK contributors will hopefully consider entering. We could do with some really good swearing in this year's shortlist.

It seems more important than ever to celebrate those who defend political and economic freedom. We hope you will consider participating—and help us promote both prizes with a mention on Devil's Kitchen?

Your humble Devil has ridiculed those who cannot be arsed to get their email campaigns right—it seems only fair to plug those who have made some effort to be creative.

The submission deadline for entries is 30 June, and all of the other (quite reasonable) rules seem clear enough—especially...
  • Self-published articles and blogs are eligible.

I must say, I do fancy a shot at a $3,000 prize—although having a sweary entry win it would be even more fun...

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
