“Last week the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, a British think tank, released a startling chart comparing the current slump with past recessions and recoveries. It turns out that by one important measure — changes in real G.D.P. since the recession began — Britain is doing worse this time than it did during the Great Depression. Four years into the Depression, British G.D.P. had regained its previous peak; four years after the Great Recession began, Britain is nowhere close to regaining its lost ground.”
hahaha, ok, also - there was this girl in the row in front of me who totally freaked me out. she kept pulling up her knees to her face and giggling and clutching her face every time assbender fucked someone.
what really pisses me off is that those liberal interventionists who were really noisy pre libya operations have kinda disappeared after all the separate rebel groups who really had nothing in common apart from wanting to get rid of big g are now killing each other and avoiding anything that resembles disarming in what is essentially a massive fuck off power vacuum. what gives. also. the only russian election monitoring NGO golos (EU funded) which has been exposing voting irregularities has been branded as a ‘dangerous organisation’, has been thrown out of their offices, wasn’t allowed in to various parliamentary elections last month and are being continually harassed and intimidated by state security officials.
