Jonathon - a Scot - would be better served, methinks, by not sampling so generously his national drink before going on air.

At least (for fear of legal action) that's how it sounds to me.

An economist telling us to tell the banks (which we've spent so much money bailing out) to sod off is remarkable, and would make Gordon Brown shudder ... oh, hang on, isn't Gordon a Scottish economist too?

Ah - well that explains everything.

We went to the theatre tonight (birthday treat) saw "yes Minister" hilariously funny in a really Not funny way.

There was a great play on Radio 4 yesterday - The Great Squanderland Roof, which clearly explained the state of the economy and how we got there - and was hilarious to boot.

As for your man, Jonathon, after listening to SEIs link I looked him up on You Tube and listened to George Galloway interviewing him - hilarious. :lol:
