Why I Believe in Bourgeois Stability

Daniel FinkelsteinFilmed at UJIA Sippur 2014

I was brought up in Hendon Central. This talk is a call to understand what we have in Britain and to appreciate it.  We are living in one of the most prosperous countries in the world at one of the most prosperous moments in history. If politicians are so bad how is it that we have it so good?

As well as his weekly political column in the comment section and his Saturday Notebook, he writes the “Fink Tank” for the Saturday paper, a statistical column on football.

Between 1997 and 2001, he was chief policy adviser to the Leader of the Opposition Rt. Hon. William Hague MP and Secretary to the Shadow Cabinet.  In 2001, he was Conservative parliamentary candidate in Harrow West.
