I know this is going to make me look even sadder than usual, but I’ve just realised the word ‘ECONOMIST’ features the words ‘CON’ and ‘MIST’ in it.

Coincidence? I don’t think so …

The cunning bastards will probably use this as part of their defense plea.

I’m almost impressed. Almost.

Funnily enough, I was reading this esteemed periodical a le weekend.
They’re still claiming the best way out of this mess of LESS regulations -it’s those silly governments interfering with their innapriate interest rates.
People are not statistics. They are people with homes, lives children and dreams.
