Market Reflections

Of all the figures produced around this industry the very simple longitudinal data set being built up by the surveys done annually since 2012 initially by NABMA is perhaps the most useful. Maybe because the late Kris Zazada realised that the basic measures we needed could be recorded via a simple traffic light item bank questionnaire do-able by even the busiest market officer in pretty short order.

As predictions go it wasn’t a bad one. You remember – the one I made a couple of years ago that Boris’ two Mayoral terms would be seen as the high spot of his political career. His lightweight performances perfectly matched the very lightweight responsibilities that went with the Blair constructed job (intended originally if I recall aright for Frank Dobson). Since then it’s been ‘Cometh the hour, goeth the man’ for BJ who may be the most mediocre Foreign Secretary we’ve ever had.
