Welcome to the Blogosphere, NT!

Just thought I’d mention it: Norman Tebbit is now blogging.

I doubt I’ll agree with everything he says, but he’s written a couple of very interesting posts (that I partially agree with) already here, and also here.

I particularly like his line about our welfare state and it’s perverse effect on the poor:

It is madness to claim that people so poor that they need welfare payments are at the same time sufficiently well-off to pay income tax.

It’s nice to have this articulate voice on the web. From his appearances on TV, I’ve often found myself agreeing with him often, but he sounds pretty stuffy a lot of the time. I feel he’ll really shine in the written word.

Welcome to the web NT, I’m sure you’ll have a blast!
