What does it mean when someone who is himself significantly responsible for solving a problem expresses his “impatience” for a solution? I think of this because today’s Times has on page 2
George Osborne lost patience with the pensions industry yesterday, announcing action against insurers who blocked savers from accessing their cash.
And on page 4 we read of
news of a fresh delay of up to a year in publication of the Iraq inquiry, prompting Mr Cameron to say that he was “fast losing patience”.
Perhaps this outbreak of impatience is somehow related to the front-page story, which says
the very best they can expect is that it will take them time — but time is not on their side.
That one is about the pervasive decline in sperm quality due to plastics in packaging, sunscreens and cosmetics.
