Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One note about that Canadian pipeline.

As I understand it, the reason that there was a push for a pipeline was to deliver North Slope gas to the lower 48 instead of liquefying it and sending it to Asia.

That suggests to me that she's not really a neo-liberal.  Particularly since Alaska is unique in that it gains revenue off of oil and gas extraction in the state.  And putting that gas on to the  world market would likely have made the state more money than sending it to the lower 48.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
