Smugness is Out...

"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???
