I guess they had to do something.  Is it the right thing though?

it may be a failure, but swiss bank accounts will continue to grow

When your attempt at recreating the Congress of Vienna with a third-rate cast of extras turns into a shambles, when the data with which you have tried to terrify the world is daily exposed as ever more phoney, when the blatant greed and self-interest of the participants has become obvious to all beholders, when those pesky polar bears just keep increasing and multiplying – what do you do?

Hold a big environmental sleepover….


And so it is over. All of the right thinking folks are terribly let down by PMSH – imagining perhaps that he had been elected to hand over a fantastic amount of our wealth to the keptocracies that characterise the developing world; all in an effort to obtain redemption of some sort for our imagined climate debt.  EU Referendum summarises nicely the gnashing of teeth and disappointment of the loony left, but quite rightly notes that it was always all about the money.    The National Post helpfully offers the coles notes version…..

Bottom line: They may be down, but they’re not out. Never underestimate the ability of the Rentier class to extract money from your wallet, all without benefit of democratic legitimacy natch…..

light blogging

Well- away from the ‘desk’ so to speak for a couple of weeks and realised I have added nothing in quite a while. Add in the fact that Christmas is fast approaching and with the littlest’s birthday tomorrow, I think I may be excused the lack of posts.

Anyway – back at it….
