Both the leadership candidates are exceptional, but I am supporting Boris Johnson. I worked on his London Mayoral campaign in 2008, supported his re-election in 2012 and worked on his Conservative leadership bid in 2016. He is a person of huge talent, and an old friend. 1/

Just gonna say this once: Toy Story 4 is absolutely magnificent. Can’t have been three minutes when I wasn’t either laughing or weeping. Or both. #ToyStory4

Michael Oakeshott on Authority, Governance, and the State: .@Jesse_Norman

We're delighted that after our meeting with @Jesse_Norman MP, his DfT successor @Michael_Ellis1 has written to all UK councils encouraging them to get behind #playstreets for the benefit of children and communities:

"#AdamSmith, born #otd still has a vast amount to teach us, not merely about economics and markets and trade, but about the deepest issues of inequality, culture and human society facing us today" writes @Jesse_Norman via @FT

Adam Smith, widely regarded as ‘father of modern economics’ was born #onthisday in 1723. @Jesse_Norman will be at #CVHF to trace his influence over the past 2 centuries and address crucial issues of inequality and exploitation.
Get your ticket here:

@nminow Most have never read his first book, "Moral Sentiment" If they had, they would see the underpinnings of #CSR. @Jesse_Norman excellent biography of Smith should be on the undergrad curriculum.

Thank you! Very glad you enjoyed it.
