Britain goes to cock, shock

It's all falling apart over here in England. Even Sir Bufton Huffchester is now saying that we should shrink government by increasing taxes.

If even Sir Huff has lost his sanity, then we really are in trouble.

I would comment on all of the related articles, but alas I have work to do to help protect myself from this mess, and there's simply too much madness around at the moment to comment constructively upon it:

=> A programme to horrify politicians, but save Britain (Sir Huff finally loses it and claims that by taxing food and by increasing all other taxes, that we can get a smaller government. Go figure, as the Americans say.)

=> UK faces life in the economic slow lane (Jeremy Warner thinks we can get 'growth' in Britain by "countering" fiscal contraction with an accommodative monetary policy. My tailor is good at stuff like that. "Yes sir, if we widen your waistband your diet will start working.")

=> The critical point for peak inflation is drawing nearer, believe it or not (Roger Bootle is mystified by the visitation of price inflation upon us, from outer space. Go carefully there, Roger.)

Like I said, madness has descended.

We're not all Keynesians now.

We're all nutters.

There are times when one must have the fortitude to face the inevitable oncoming chaos with a large, stiff G&T :)

Maybe it will be painless, all over in an instant before you're even aware of it. Then again...

Thank God it's Friday. Large stiff one at 6pm, on the dot, it is. Perhaps two.

I appreciate the heads-up on MaxBounty. I'm earning about $20 a month from Adsense and want to bump those earnings up. It looks like your suggestion will do the trick.
