First, sorry for what we cutting edge techies call an 'outage' yesterday between 5pm and 8pm. A few hundred thousand sites were down because of an organisation called Fasthosts (ha!). Anyway, I'm back and ready to rumble.
There's a Guardian leader on the expulsion of the four Russian diplomats in response to Moscow's refusal to hand over Andrei Lugovoi. The leader ends: 'Confrontation is in no-one's interest. But nor is letting freelance murders take place on the streets of London.' Therefore, I would have thought, confrontation IS in our interest. But, no, see sentence one, confrontation is in NO-ONE's interests and that must include us, even though confrontation IS in our interest, see sentence two. I always wanted to be a Guardianista, it's such a drowsy, comfortable life, like one long hot bath where you don't have to make up your mind about anything.
