"Smugness is out" said a posh mum at the little one's swim lesson. Has smugness ever been acceptable? I think not.
France seems rather smug this morning. The self-satisfaction of being perfectly not-to-blame for anything happening in the global economy is casting an annoying glow. France's point of needing more than just rhetoric to emerge from the G20 meeting is a valid one, but, seems to be provocative rather than consensus-building with their threat to walk away. The ethnographer in the lovely rowing video needs to have a word with the G20 team.
Could you just imagine all those world leaders in a boat going down the Thames???
