Introduction: last year of our Second twenty-first-century Decade (!)

Year-end and year-start reviews can be an occasion for melancholy or celebration, and yet I personally feel neither.

Many of my best friends think that some of my deeply held beliefs about important issues are obviously false or even nonsense. Sometimes, they tell me so to my face. How can we still be friends?

‘The theory produces a good deal but hardly brings us closer to the secret of the Old One,’ wrote Albert Einstein in December 1926. ‘I am at all events convinced that He does not play dice.’ 

Einstein was responding to a letter from the German physicist Max...

I have occasionally been critical of the way we do politics. The recent leaders’ debate on electoral reform provides me with material to explain.

The Opposition prefers electoral reform to be studied by a citizens’ assembly, as in 2003, over the Government’s process. It is a reasonable proposal. The members of the 2003 Citizens’ Assembly were selected at random. It was not an absolute...
