We really are in trouble

When politicians begin to sound desperate, it's time to start stocking up. "The economic crisis should be treated as "the difficult birth-pangs of a new global order", with new rules introduced on trade, Gordon Brown says. " and when they use tired tired metaphors like that (the last time it got trotted out was by Condaleeza Rice during the Israeli - Lebanon war in 2006 - look how apt it was then) you know they are reaching the point of capitulation.

May we wish them all speed.
