Going backwards in the UK.

Mervyn King, the governor of the Bank of England, gave a remarkable estimate in a speech in Newcastle on January 21. This is that real UK wages in 2011 “are likely to be no higher than they were in 2005”. He went on: “One has to go back to the 1920s to find a time when real wages fell over a period of six years.”

Michael Warby. Something for everyone.

    Going backwards in the UK.

    This is sad, but no surprise to Brit watchers. They’re in a period of decline.

    rampant spiraling crime in Alice Springs, eh? This town plays a key role in our tourism infrastructure.

    a seemingly unprovoked attack on a group of four tourists, including a twenty-nine-year-old German woman who was stabbed in the shoulder. The five assailants were Aboriginal and, most worryingly, three of them were young women, who have since been arrested. There is considerable anger and anxiety over the fact that the eighteen-year-old woman accused of the stabbing has been released on bail.

    Seems like some of the locals think the intervention is driving a lot of aboriginals ” its harsh measures have driven people out of the communities and into town”. Unintended consequences?
