    Love it. Thanks.

      I love it!
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        I doubt they mean it with any positive sense do they?

        Farage is the odd one out he drove the process of Brexit by never letting go of the Tory tail but unlike the others he's not in government and most likely never will be.

          Yes, the cover is not meant to be flattering.

            The Economist is a free trade/neoliberal magazine, so no, the coverage inside will not be positive. The last issue was not positive, either. The article on Trump's business record was a hacket job.

                Actually that would be "Second Fife"... not fiddle. Just saying.

                            Trump's business record is a hatchet job. The only way to spin it positively is to outright lie.
