Anyway, there was a bit of a debate at the end when I pressed Benn on his insistence on the national state. Globalisation, I put forward, was a good thing because it offered workers in poorer countries a new opportunity for employment and wealth. And, if the world could be a fairer place with universal standards of wages and health and safety, Benn agrees in the end. He’s also a technologist – which is pleasing, because I agree entirely with Benn on this – our future depends on technology going forward.
On a totally different note, I’m super-excited (as a Microsoft blog would say) to promote RV Blog – Nic’s re-launched network of eager bloggers. Check it out, and stay up to date with the feed on the right.
