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

Crisis in the Middle East!
Melanie Phillips brings me the news:
So it’s now not just a crisis between the Obama administration and Israel. By a remarkable coincidence, the UK government has now upped the ante too against its sole 'friend' and 'ally' in the Middle East
Oh my God this is awful! Israel is now our only ally in the Middle East! Why hasn't there been more reporting on the incredibly serious diplomatic developments that have presumably taken place in the last couple of days? We've chucked Turkey out of NATO! We've broken our alliance with Saudi Arabia! What about Iraq - I thought we still had a few troops there at the request of the government? Dubai aren't our friends any more - what will the footballers do?
In fact I am pretty sure that both the UK and USA have quite a few friends and allies in the Middle East. The country which has Israel as its sole ally in the region is called Israel. And even they are usually on friendly terms with Turkey.
