Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping
Just a note - I have seen this mistake being made on a few blogs now. Sudan has a complicated power-sharing arrangement in its government, which means that not all Sudanese government officials are war criminals alongside al-Bashir, and many of them hate the NCP more than you do. The Sudanese representative at the Copenhagen talks has a Congolese first name and the middle name of a Catholic saint, which means it is very likely (I can't find a proper biography) that he is from the South of Sudan. He's also Oxford-educated and a former McKinsey consultant, which means he may be a heck of a tool in many other ways, but he's not a war criminal and, particularly, there is nothing awful about Johann Hari and Naomi Klein interviewing him respectfully. He's also speaking for the G77, who haven't disassociated themselves from his remarks, so it's not true to say that "Sudan derailed the Copenhagen talks".
