In his last column, Toby Craig reports on an action-packed month in Westminster and the deal with the criminal Bar.
If a week is a long time in politics, then four years in Westminster can seem an eternity. Having penned WW for almost that long, this column shall be my 46th and my last. More on that later; but there have been few months as action-packed as this one, so it is as good as any on which to exit. A budget, TV debates, a cabinet resignation and finally, a breakthrough on legal aid and that’s before we get to the House of Lords’ 155-page report on soft power. Never let it be said WW scrimps on the detail.
