Spectator Inquiry: questions for Lord Lawson

It is a great pleasure to say that Lord Lawson of Blaby will be our first 'expert witness' for The Spectator's wiki-inquiry into the recession. As a former Chancellor and editor of the magazine, it's a tremendous way to start and we'd like your thoughts on what to ask him. Our inquiry is not intended as witch hunt, more to identify what went wrong and how to fix it. He is of a generation of Tory radicals who saved the economy the first time around - and I, for one, am keen to find out what he thinks went wrong. Did he think inflation targeting was too narrow a remit for the MPC? Does he think the banks should have been regulated more? Did he see any warning signs, or was he caught by surprise as so many others were? And does he think state spending needs to be cut? These are a few of my thoughts: let's have yours.
