Belgian government falls

I am not going into the details of the BHV question, but apparently Leterme has offered the King his resignation after the Liberals pulled the plug (my gut reaction: everyone is being opportunist here). Fortunately, this may mean that parliament fails to vote on the absurd and offensive burqa ban.

    I don’t understand what you are saying here about Krugman, who has been consistently opposed to austerity right from the word go, and as recently as 8 May described the fiscal pact as “totally misguided”. I don’t see Martyn Turner cartoons so can’t comment on that.

    As I said to below, the point about Hayek is that he unequivocally predicted that a welfare state would lead to totalitarianism, and this is unequivocally false. His other work needs to be evaluated in that light.
