Comment is Free: Share the wealth!

My latest article on Comment is Free is now up:

Instead of doggedly trying to outpace property prices, imagine if the exchequer went the other way. And imagine if it used the extra revenue that resulted to cut income taxes. Wouldn’t it be fairer to allow people to keep more of the money that they earn in exchange for having less inheritance to look forward to? Wouldn’t that be better for the economy: lowering the costs of labour while doing more to capture unearned wealth? Shouldn’t at least one of the main political parties be championing such a position?

Facebook: in God’s name why?

I’ve just found that when you type the word “procrastinating” in your Facebook status update, the website adds a space before the “g” at the end for no apparent reason. Why is this?

By the way, if you got a dictionary out and looked up “procrastinating” this blog post would be there.

UPDATE: The space is gone. What is this crazy shit? Is the government sending radio signals in my brain again?

UPDATE 2: It’s back again! See below:

Facebook Screenshot which clearly shows a space before the g in the word procrastinating

And now it’s gone again:

Facebook screenshot a couple of minutes later - the space has gone!
