‘Terrorists’ turned out to be president’s men. This is where paranoia gets you. 21 hours in custody for Pakistani PM’s associates.
Home repossessions leap by 21%. I’m seriously convinced that a recession is coming now. Confidence is shaky on both sides of the Atlantic, anyone paying attention knows the American economy is buggered and it’s really just a matter of time The thing is I don’t know what, if anything, we should do to prepare for it.
