      My answer is a rude place. There's a good chance the forecasts are on the "optimistic" side as stuff seems to be not a garden of roses, worldwide.

      the problem is that a manager should not motivate you to play an Fa Cup final, you should internal fire. Chelsea got to Champions League final and lost on penalties with Avram Grant in charge he isnt a motivator We had a team of players that had about 300 international appearances, players that had played in World Cup semi final, Champions League experience and some who played for biggest clubs in England. players were a disgrace that day led by a gutless captain

      Automatically dropped to 4/10 WNB, after she revealed her allegiances to the dark side. I laughed when they lost. Tough questions in the final round, mind.

      Um, I think maybe my and AWOLs posts may have caused some confusion for you and so I'm sorry. I don't however think that "this is all very confused" (as a comment on the NATO nations and their choices) I get the sense (perhaps Jon will correct me) that we (AWOL and I) are both talking about NATO nations only (I certainly am). Not European nations individually. I think AWOL agrees with the content of my posts, above. I don't think anyone is picking and choosing either -they might wish to, but they can't. I think the sentence you wrote "if you have a treaty which is based upon collective defence and certain member states (or even the vast majority save one or two) decide not to act upon that (I think the words were to tell Turkey to stick Article 5 up its Al Qaeda loving arse) then you don't really have a treaty based upon collective defence any more." is based on a false hypothetical, as the member states can't decide, by the definition in the treaty, not to act upon it. I.e you don't have that kind of treaty. that's not what it says or is founded upon. Quite the opposite. So IMO any weaselling would be around Turkey not invoking the treaty to call upon the obligations of the other members to assist it, in the event the Russians were to respond to the plane shooting with military actions against Turkey. There is huge pressure on all sides for all sorts of reasons not to escalate this. It's bad enough with the Religionists, they don't want the non (less?) crazies fighting each other too.

      Right. I just saw the overall forecasts for the economy (usual guff: GDP up 2.4%, 2.5%, 2.4%, 2.4% and so on). Where did Chote pull this stuff from? Haven't the numbers from the ONS for October just told us that the public sector net borrowing for the year to date is £54.3bn against a forecast for the year as a whole of £69.5bn? What have the OBR forecast for the net borrowing for the rest of the year?
