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

The gradual suicide of liberal Europe
Since Melanie Philips is on holiday (see the posts below of which I note with horror this is the third consecutive one!), it falls to me to document the gradual suicide of liberal Europe. It is actually a lot more difficult than Mel makes it look to find real evidence of European societies literally committing suicide, but I think that this must surely count, from the Guardian letters:
"In the Netherlands, no bags are offered to customers. This saves money for shops and customers and stops landfill becoming choked in plastic."
Trying to reduce landfill in the Netherlands? What do they think polders are made of? The entire country is basically built on landfill! I can only assume that the postmodern green relativists and Gramscians are undermining the traditional values of Dutch society to the extent that the country will literally disappear beneath the waves. I bet the dhimmis are involved too but I can't work out how to fit them in.
