FURTHER UN-ERASED SLOVENIAN UNHISTORY WITH AUTO-TUNE - And it came to pass, having smitten enough of the hordes of Janša to form a coalition, that Alenka The Legs proffered a sermon on the mount to the Yugo-Nostalgians.

And presently she did let forth a hearty Communist sing-song. And it seemed like the right and usual thing to do. And of its future detriment to her career and chances of getting out of Slo-ven-i-a to dwell in fabulous splendour among the EU-ites a mere year and a half later, zero was known in those times.

And the Yugo-Nostalgians went happily away and told it in the village of how she had associated with the relevant symbols, how things were going to be better again, that every worker would be a king, when once again you will be able to get 60 fags, a few beers and an untraceable-meat burek and still have change from fifty billion dinars.

ALENKA'S DREAM

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live off its true leaning: towards greed - we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all bloodsuckers are created equally unable to accept their own redundancy.

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Solčava the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at a long table, eat protected-designation sausages, and get drunk, while an army of sausage-counters make 20% on everything. [Make that 22% now - Ed.]

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mussomeli, a despised state, smelling like the feet of self-interest and geopolitics, will be transformed into an orgy of free money and just about enough tourists...but not the really big ones as our toilets cannot cope.

I have a dream that Reinhart and Rogoff will one day get their spreadsheets right, so nations' bond yields will not be misjudged according to the character of their debt-to-GDP ratio, but by the colour of their imitation Chardonnay.

I have a dream today!


I don't have much need to read sovereign bond prospectuses, but I wouldn't follow Noonan or Osborne's examples at anything.  http://www.levyinstitute.org/pubs/pn_12_04.pdf
