Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Rogers, to be fair, is a bit of a drama queen (assuming I'm thinking of the guy I believe I'm thinking of).  I do think the UK is in some serious trouble, even relative to the US and others, simply because of how all economic policy has been driven towards feeding the City and the Wharf, and given what significant chunks of the economy they represent.

The cost of insuring British debt -- and this is obviously a phenomenon we've seen elsewhere -- worries me.

The yields on gilts are also pretty scary.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
