I’ve been neglecting my blog in recent months for a number of reasons, so I thought I’d publish links to some pieces I’ve written recently. I then realised I’ve written exclusively about the housing shortage and care homes.

Admittedly, these are not the most dazzling stories to brighten up a dreary February evening. However, in policy terms these are absolutely crucial issues. They’re the issues that the Conservative government doesn’t want you to research, because they don’t want you to know about their appalling track record in managing housing and health policy.
