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!

The end of democracy
I see from the wikileaks cables that the US government is associating itself with Moazzam Begg of CagePrisoners.
Unaccountably, parties such as Peter Tatchell, Gita Saghal and Nick Cohen appear to have been slow to condemn this horrific act of collaboration. I for one am going to stand side by side with Shiraz Maher and face up to the obvious if unpalatable reality. There can be no "yes buttery". The USA praised Begg. End of story. Whatever else they might have done, whatever their track record of good work (of which I must emphasise I am a heartfelt supporter, though not to the extent of ever having written anything favourable about it), we need to face facts.
The US government has willingly associated itself with Moazzam Begg. Therefore, in the Greatest Intellectual Struggle Of Our Time, the USA, like the Guardian, Amnesty International, the BBC and Elvis Costello, is on the other side.
