Hm - the UK citizenship questions are definitely harder than the questions for acquiring German citizenship here. Good job I'm British already :-)

Interesting point in the Süddeutsche today: DEXIA, which has just had to be rescued by the French and Belgium governments, was rated better than any of the major French banks in the last stress test run earlier this year. (According to the article, one of the next banks at risk could be the Royal Bank of Scotland.)

I'm reading "The Greatest Crash: How contradictory policies are sinking the global economy" by David Kauders. Kauders predicted the credit crisis some years before it hit. If you take the time to read his book, I think you'll find his arguments worryingly plausible that our problems are only just becoming visible, and the world economy going to get a lot worse in the next 25 years. Problems like Dexia are just the tip of the iceberg.

An all too appropriate analogy in the Guardian between the Mad Hatters Tea Party and the management of the Euro crisis by the political caste, with Angela Merkel and Wolfgang Schäuble co-starring in the role of the Mad Hatter.

Lots of progress this week - the house should be finished before the end of October. The builder is confident enough that I have asked the removal company when they can deliver our house contents, which have been in storage for a couple of weeks already.

I'd find this believable if the period was longer. Blind spot crashes increase by 48% in two years - surely car design hasn't changed that much since 2009?
