In the last resort

I liked this from Simon Hoggart's Commons Diary yesterday:

The most startling remark came from the Rev Ian Paisley.

The ancient turtle raised himself on his flippers and boomed as if from a cavern at the bottom of the sea.

"I trust the whole nation will turn in repentance and cry to God for an intervention so that calamity will not come on our children and on the babes in their cots," he said.

Never know. It might just work.

Better than appointing a bunch of neo-liberals to work out how to solve the crisis, I can assure you. Which is the really worrying thing. Because tat is just what Brown has done.
