Precious gem

With such “diamond” economic analysis from Stan Hogarth (Letters, 11 November) all I can say is thank God dreamers like me can turn to real gems like Lesley Riddoch, the Commonweal and economists like Jim and Margaret Cuthbert among others, for new thinking, fresh ideas and solutions.

Mr Hogarth says let’s just all agree to pay a bit more tax. Simples! Here’s my suggestion: let’s not. Instead, and here’s the really dreamy, bonkers bit: let’s just ensure everyone pays what they owe with no evasion or avoidance.
