Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree with Robert. This is just like reading Soviet-era Pravda. The touch is very slightly lighter, but the content is equally predictable and idiotic.

I lost all respect for the Econo - which was hard when I didn't have much to start with - when they published a feature last year which stated that George Bush should automatically be deferred to, because he was the longest-serving and most experienced leader in the G7.

This was so patently insane on so many counts, that it really became impossible to treat the Econo's editorialising as anything other than a more serious version of The Onion, or perhaps the Framley Examiner.

If nothing else it was factually wrong in a very obvious way, because Blair had been around since 1997. Only they'd - you know - forgotten him.

Making such a ridiculous mistake isn't even journalism. It's poop.
