Welcome to my new website

Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

To counter some of this prejudice I have dispensed with sending my CV and have instead created The Complete Picture, an animated ninety second overview of my life to date @ https://vimeo.com/223960456.

Letter in FT yesterday: Dear Sir The logic of Jon Cruddas's article is that should Mr Corbyn be re-elected as Leader then those Labour MPs who do not support him should resign from the party.  This would lead to a new centre-based Labour Party with a new name. It would instantly become the largest opposition party in Parliament. It would create the most almighty earthquake. It will never happen. As a consequence Labour will never again be in power.  Yours etc Derek...

Rio 2016 by Derek Wyatt Four years ago the nation basked in the stunning success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  Record crowds attended, our multi racial volunteers were simply outstanding and they were rightly awarded the Best Games ever. London became the first city in the world to host them for a third time.  Before the opening ceremony there were concerns at different times about cost overruns, security (remember the G4 debacle?), the lack of an anchor...

Eddie Jones and Roy Hodgson by Derek Wyatt  Eddie Jones is a leader of men with a Ph.D in strategy. Roy Hodgson is not. One is a field-marshal the other is a sergeant major. The former coaches the England rugby team whilst the latter manages the England soccer side.   Jones is having an incredible run with eight wins in a row including a Grand Slam and a winning 2-0 in a best of three test series in Australia. Hodgson looks to have lost his way after...

 A Short and Hurried piece for the KCW Today web site Friday 24th June 2016  David Cameron steps down I have known David Cameron for over fifteen years. He saved his party in 2005 after three thumping defeats and made them electable. His forethought and quickness in decision making during three critical days following the 2010 election enabled him to become Prime Minister of an unlikely coalition with the Lib Dems. Ultimately it saved his bacon and destroyed the Lib Dems as a...

Parliament Squared Where were you around 4am on Friday 23 June 2016?  I was struggling to find my mobile. My son was calling from his trading desk in New York. "Dad what the hell is going on? " You can guess the rest. He had just seen on his screens that the UK had voted to Leave. He said that was the end for his generation. He talked about moving permanently to America. We suggested he took joint citizenship. His subsequent mood of disbelief has not changed.  My daughter was
