Linkblogging For 27/3/15

Sorry I’ve not been around or very conversational. I developed an ear infection on Monday (I suspect because my immune system was depressed by the anti-arthritic drugs I’m on, which I’ve come off again while I go through the antibiotics) and simultaneously my hard drive broke leaving me sans working computer.
I now have a working computer, but no working head yet — I don’t cope well at all with pains in my head, and I’m getting intermittent pain, tinnitus, and about 70% hearing loss in my left ear.

I’m hoping to get some proper blog posts written in the next few days, but in the meantime, have links:

Adam Bernard makes a good case for basic income as a Lib Dem policy. Trolling ensues in the comments, including racial slurs, but Richard Gadsden and others make very good points in response.
