"You have run out of our money"

Oh, for a US Congressman to be so direct:

Daniel Hannan MEP: The devalued Prime Minister of a devalued Government

(Being a sailor, I especially love the boat references!)

Oh for some open and candid speech like that on this side of the pond.

(We could use a few like Daniel on City Council too.)

Clear speak and undisputable facts..., how refreshing!

Maggie,

To stretch the nautical references made by Mr. Hannan:

We here in the US sail with the blind acceptance of the captain of the Titannic. Believing ourselves unsinkable and firm in the knowledge that we have nothing to fear, we push on at full speed ahead in spite of the warnings of icebergs that we have been given.

What's worse however is that even now, perhaps fatally holed in our flawed course and our desire for haste, the Captain of the most wonderful ship that has ever sailed seems only concerned that the band plays more cheerful music as the ship sinks.

Tim: Nice one.

I wish we had a few like Daniel Hannan over here.
