Recession edition

A lovely Google Ad nestled into the middle of David McWilliams homepage. The Credit
Institutions (Financial Support) Bill 2008 is now online. A potentially useful purchase - "How I lived on a pound a day" by Kath Kelly, one of few people who may benefit from said recession. BBC have a dummy's guide to recessionary terminology online.

Thought-provoking quotes:

"The choice is between a recession, which is already here, and a depression, which might be around the corner. It couldn’t be more simple or more stark." - David McWilliams.

"For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings:
How some have been deposed, some slain in war;
Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed;...(it goes on here)" - Eddie Hobbs.

"In a recession, one must sparkle!" - Mary O'Rourke.
