A splendid article by Christopher Booker detailing the stupidity of Gordon Brown's state-sector spending spree, which has now reduced us to the position of 48% of us propping up a parasite-sector spending which spends 52% of our wealth on itself.
Fortunately, this is unsustainable. Once the parasite overwhelms the host, then the host will simply give up the ghost. We have now reached that point and the only question remaining is about when the shoe is going to drop.
Here's my comment on Mr Booker's comment page:

Sir Christopher, you are a splendid Gentleman of the finest water. Please keep up the superb work.
