Cricket rises to the occasion…

Yesterday George Osborne outlined his latest financial thinking in the Autumn Statement and Britain seems to be doing a bit better than expected in coming out of recession with less job losses predicted and higher growth. Cricket is also doing its part with a great fight-back in the Ashes in Australia. Last night I was pleased to attend the parliamentary launch of Sir Alan Haslehurst’s new book “Unusually Cricket” which is a delightful insight into the adventures of the club “the Outcasts”. The event was extremely well attended and I was glad to see that in the midst of the Coalitions’ efforts to tackle the budget deficit, a positive event has taken place to promote a good book, related to a subject very dear to my heart: cricket!
