My name is Edward Barrow. I live in Brixton, south London, married, no children, (two cats and three lodgers as proxies).
I run a small business, from which this blog is light relief. I don’t have the time to rant round the kitchen table these days, so my rantings come here.
I believe that most political and financial problems are caused by opacity so can be prevented by transparency. That is why I am proud to call myself a Transparency Extremist.
Politically, I’m a small-l liberal, a leftie libertarian if you like.
I’m middle-aged and middle-class, and my heritage is English, with some Norman – apparently, through my mother’s side of the family, I am one of the half-million or so living descendants of William the Conqueror. Nevertheless, I’m proudly, but not ardently, Republican: I hope the next monarch of this country will be remembered as Charles the Last.
