Unintended consequences. There's this nasty - difficult to invert - thing: Erosion. Maybe "England, England", J Barnes, becomes reality - England rebuilt as "theme park" at the Isle of Wight?Edit: but there's entertainment: the UK can watch the EU falling apart while. say, Scotland tries to get in.

PI take it you mean the Lincolner comment rather than Scots preferring Spain to Blackpool?Both I guess. Sorry I shouldn't have been so abrupt. But there has been a general dismissal of the working classes, as I mention in my blog, that I find very unpleasant. There has been a demonstrable lack of empathy. Only UKIP seem to get it. P

I don't know why building stocks are falling. They're going to be doing great business repairing Hadrian's Wall. P
