It just never stops, and it's damn depressing. I was at a conference yesterday, and I was told that I should stop believe in Santa Claus (the guy actually said that, and expressed his pity and disappointment, as a "leftwing guy", that I'd utter such ideological nonsense) when I brought up some of the idea we discuss here about France and the Anglo Disease.
