Yes, I don't know whether it is depressing, or funny. There was a splendid German official on the radio yesterday saying in very measured and Teutonic tones that he would take more kindly to Cameron's financial advice had he not bollixed up the UK economy. Beautiful!

I suspect that the media knew that Cameron was going to achieve the square root of nothing, but it was a slow news day, and they are in the business of ramping up emotions, rather than the actual reporting of reality.

It seems to me that one of the important requirements for conducting a foreign policy is to know your limitations. 'Merkozy et al' have no interest in what the UK thinks and we have no inluence over the resut. He would have done better to stay at home.
