The gardener who takes credit for a tree growing

Or the doctor who refuses to give you an appointment and then takes the credit for an unattended wound healing up.

I've been struggling to find a parallel for a spectacularly silly comment from the head of the UN about the ozone layer - remember that?

"The battle to repair the ozone layer represents one of the great success stories of international cooperation".

Last time I looked, there was no team of plasterers floating around 10 miles up applying gypsum to the gaps.

Wasn't it you who posted that the hole is not getting any smaller?

The Croy wears a number of hats, a favourite being his financial hat (top hat?). Cd he explain why the BoE is lending money to N. Rock but no-one is speculating how much? Is this unlimited credit?

I think we should be told.

Tristan - Not me, no.

Warren - I've never thought of high finance as being a speciality, but you raise an interesting point. I have, however, mulled on all those lovely, lovely Labour voters who work for Northern Rock up in geordie land

Croy - have you not.

However Robert Peston of the Beeb has partly answered the question - it cd be up to £30b. Obviously unlikely to be that much. & la vieille dame can argue that they're charging interest. I shall watch events from Omaha with great interest.

Was I dreaming or did I see you on BBC3 in a show about comics?

UKDP - Erm, not me, no.
