The City Grump

The City Grump, having recently turned 64, has spent north of 30 years in the City of London. He started as a stockbroker's analyst but after some years he decided he was too grumpy to continue with the sell side of things so he moved to the buy side and became a fund manager for the next 20 years, selling his own business in the 1990s. Post the millennium, he found himself in turn chairing a stockbroker, a financial PR company, and an Exchange. He still keeps his hand in, chairing a brace of VCTs and investing personally in startups.

The Maybot: Artificial, yes. Intelligent, no

Being a lifelong Conservative voter I naturally wanted to give prime minister Theresa May the benefit of the doubt. Sadly she has become a figure of derision both at home and abroad. The description of her as naturally robotic, hence “The Maybot”, is all too appropriate.

Cheap labour is the curse of our times

One of the key tenets of the liberal establishment, and no doubt we shall be fed much more of this in the current election campaign, is cheap labour is essential for the smooth functioning of the UK and other advanced economies. They are oh so wrong.
