Forging ahead in this new January dawn of hope I read today that British national debt has doubled during the "noughties". From a straightie-one-eightie £350 billion pounds between the foundation of the Bank of England in 1694 and 1999....to a cool funky £700 billion pounds today. It is also estimated by the Treasury that this will should double again by 2014.
Going back to the really good old days in counterpoise I breached the taboo of revisiting the past and watched the Morecambe and Wise 1973 Christmas show last week - what an utterly peurile experience aside from a solitary New Seeker's nipple.
