My name is Jon Chadwick, Managing Director of Durham Distillery. Right now I am busy building a new Distillery in central Durham.
Before I made craft spirits I worked for the Government, and in different roles I saw most of the what the State does from healthcare to prisons, and lots of bits of the civil service.
I am also a miserable twisty faced Nothern malcontent, who hates paperwork and bureaucracy and all that goes with it. Which is probably why I don’t work for the Government any more.
I started writing a blog to keep my faculties busy, and because I was struk by how different the real economy looks like from an Industrial Estate outside of Durham rather than an office in Whitehall.
Specifically I wanted to talk about why I think that most of the stuff I used to believe about the economy and the world of work were wrong.
The idea was to try and write for 2 years which would span the period from the Brexit vote to actually leaving. Brexit, and this blog turned out to be longer than I expected and I surprised myself that I had more to write about than I thought
