But inside - what is wrong - what is wrong what is wrong? The stiff upper lip of the BBC uttered the phrase "Frightening Decline" on its website this morning. The FT said "Be Afraid" on its front page. It is earning week and lo, that is mucking things up in a big way. There is also something going on with Citigroup again beyond the reported things.
I read a few of Jen Hadfield's poems to escape the gloom and doom this morning. She just won the T.S. Elliot prize and has transported Missmarketcrash to an isolated Highland island this week with all the better smells of decay and rot. Missmarketcrash went to live on the Isle of Skye for a bit after experiencing September 11th in New York. And gosh, this week it does seem time to leave those school gates behind, and, go back.
But that would not change things.
