Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your friendly neighbourhood sourpuss, inspired by Claudd Cockburn, suggests that we should imagine the worst possible set of proposals to be implemented as "reasonable compromises".

A conservative no-regulation govt is hardly gonna jump at the chance of upsetting their paymasters. Far too many of them like penning epistles from time to time waffling away on their favourite hobby-horse for a grand a pop (or more - tax free) for them to risk doing anything that fleet street imagines it might dislike.

Public be stuffed - this will be a typical Establishment stitch up
