The 'New Statesman' living in the past

Or so it would seem judging from an articel in the Jerusalem Post where new subscribers are being offered the chance to sponsor the planting of olive trees in an entity called 'Palestine', which has not existed for well over 50 years. I look forward to comparable initiatives in Nyasaland, Siam, Dahomey and Tanganyika. Maybe they will really push the boat out and start operations in the Khanate of Khiva or the United Provinces.

Rather less flippantly, it was the NS that had the delightful cover a while back of a Mogen David piercing the Union Flag and the title 'A Kosher Conspiracy?'
