While I find the attitude of the French and Germans incredibly depressing from a global economy point of view, I have to admit I’m rather cheered by the sense that a battle is brewing between Brtain and America (with the varying support of India, China and Brazil) and France and Germany. I mean, whose side would you rather be on?
What’s even more entertaining is seeing British Conservative Eurosceptics finding exciting new ways to contort themselves into admiration for the stance of the EUs most statist and regulatory governments. This euro-flirtation will be brief and end messily, I suspect.
PS: What’s with the Telegraph today? We got an excellent Blanchflower piece, and a very entertaining colour piece by Christopher Meyer, which made you think, wow the Telegraph commentary team have really got some good stuff at the moment.
But then you see Janet Daley’s latest piece of recycled bile, entitled “Is Gordon Brown Insane?”
Apparently this is not mere “vulgar abuse”. That’s good, as it means I can suggest that Janet Daley is a dead eyed madwoman whose vociferous prejudices are the result of repeated assaults by a crazed wasp trapped in the slowly decaying hive of her ludicrous coiffure, a state of affairs which has led the poor paranoic soul to rave madly against the dark force she imagines are tormenting her.
It’s not vulgar abuse if you care, see?
Anyway, as you might expect Ms Daley’s article generates the same feelings of warmth and goodwill to all as having a bucket of cold sick emptied over your head. Judge not, lest ye be judged, eh, Janet?
