"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Ever Had One Of Those Days?

I mean the sort of day when it would have been better if you hadn't turned on the radio or tv news or read any papers? (Today's previous posts: 1, 2 and 3)

I'm turning off, tuning out and lying in tomorrow, maybe.  Here are some stumblings and gleanings just to round off the day:

Government recruits 2 x £400pd directors for Maritime & Coastguard Agency while axing stations
Government "will assess" insult law - Sec.5 Public Order Act
UK's AAA rating threatened & a deleveraging nightmare
EU's "stringent" new rules for banks - ironically less stringent than those the UK has currently
Europe on brink of monetary union
Hannan: The mother of all bailouts

This one's from the realms of some dystopian parallel fantasy-world (link HERE) :











Finally, it looks as though Our Precious is hiring himself out for comedy videos. He hasn't had a great news day either:
