The young Clive Thomas
Oh the folly of youth! This week the Mirror reprinted a gushing letter it had received from a young Research Fellow Clive Thomas back in 1962 in which he writes: "It is my hope the government will not shy away from the extensive state control over all elements of private enterprise (both foreign and local) that is necessary for successful working of the exchange control system... The imposition of taxes on net properties is very welcome since it is the basic aim of our government to inhibit any rapid private accumulation of wealth at the expense of the working class..."

Quite why the Mirror would republish this letter is hard to fathom. Hopefully not to demonstrate that such policies were right and should be put in place shortly.
