Sssh... Don't Show This to Nadine...

Thought you'd like this rather arty photo of Evan Harris and me in the Number 10 garden. Please don't show it to Nadine. She would not approve... :)

My previous post lost in the ether, am I missing the point about this photo or is it an insider joke (or am I politically ignorant of current happenings)

re My previous post, I have just had a email pointing me to the Facebook photos of the garden party, no wonder Nad is having the vapours.She may have to lie down in a darkened room ( Not for the first time ED.)

Can't fault Evan: he adds a bit of much-needed rational thinking. (Frankly astonished that he lasted so long in parliament... )

Dale's the next gold pusher following on from Guido.

Don't you guys realise that all gold investors are being sucked into ETFs which are not obliged to hold gold bullion. They can run long futures positions, and take out matching shorts in another fund, visibly linked or otherwise.

When the price crashes as it did today from 1240 to 1200, the shorts make hay and the longs get ripped.

When the price rises, the shorts can offset the (linked) long position and claim no net position.

Very cunning.

I've met both you and Evan Harris in the flesh in Oxford.

If I remember correctly, neither of you would make the supporting cast of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

At the risk of sounding like a photography bore, the moral of the story is that you shouldn't use a 15 mm lens (or less) close up and overhead.

must admit that the joke is a bit lost on me.

i do know i find a lot of evan harris's obsession with killing people very distasteful and if this is a nod towards Nadine's anti abortion stance ok - but what that has got to do with iain flies over my head

Nadine must be a poor wee sensitive soul!

Perhaps she bears grudges.

But then, perhaps she's mad.

Perhaps you're being ironic.

Perhaps all four.
