    Hey Jack, have made some edits in the piece for you to take a look at. You’ve obviously put a lot of work into this so good on you but feel that a) part of the stuff down the bottom which is actually the ‘what this all means’ – i.e the odious debt etc needs to be up much higher.
    b) more importantly it needs to be significantly cut. It’s almost 2000 words – and while comprehensive it does drag. I would recommend having a go at halving it and see where you get to. It will be painful but necessary and will give the piece much more focus. Even if you can bring it down to 1100 words I think it would make a big difference to the impact of it. Happy to talk more about it with you.

      Hi Charles, thanks very much for your edits and advice.
      I will review the story this afternoon, try to rearrange to demonstrate the relevance, and generally trim the fat.
      Cheers

    Not sure I see where the “has spurred calls for an overhaul in international lending” = is it possible to hit harder on that higher up? And answer the “why this matters?”

      Sure, I’ll go over that now. Ideally I would have published this as a draft yesterday as I don’t think it’s quite ready. I think we’re working on that aspect.

    I’m sure this article could use some other perspectives and I’m keen to discuss any points on content or style.
