Don't we always celebrate when another country embraces the Washington Consensus?

It does make Fogh sound a bit like "Toney Blair for Dummies," doesn't it?

Indeed. Fogh very clearly has a Tory Bliar For Dummies handbook given pride of place on his reading list.

Yes, but Fogh is a Liberal, not Labour.

Tony Blair and other "third way Socialists" such as Schröder have been a big disappointment over the past 15 years. The stuff in the diary is what you would expect from a right-wing Liberal.

I don't know what could possibly give you that impression ;-)

These things fly right over my head unfortunately, fact to which others can attest. But my confusion came from your convincing wording of surprised support, and also, I must confess, to my own fondness, if with considerably different emphasis, for a couple of things on the list, if rephrased a bit, particularly as regards education (take out "business" and insert "vocational/trade") and law and order (of course taking out the coalition of the swilling mention).

So I thought either there was a double snark tag or, I don't know, tough to say.

Good stuff though.
