The smell of death

Between them, the turd-eaters and the hand-wavers are going to make today insufferable. Raedwald had it sussed and I stand by my analysis. This is not real.

You want real – read Ambrose and, God help us, The Gruaniad. Even The Financial Times is getting worried. The important point, it says, is that the eurozone's leaders must dither no more. Any suggestion that they will put off consideration of a comprehensive solution until September could be fatal.

Nearly two years ago, I wrote a piece about the smell of decadence. If I wrote that piece now, it would not look a lot different. One could add that the smell of decadence is the smell of death ... the death of our civilisation. You will see that event lurch a lot closer today.
