        I walked, with other souls in pain,
        Within another ring,
        And was wondering if the man had done
        A great or little thing,
        When a voice behind me whispered low,
        “That fellows got to swing.

        That Hoon must die a death of shame
        On a day of dark disgrace,
        And have a noose about his neck,
        And a cloth upon his face,
        And drop feet foremost through the floor
        Into an empty place”

        In Reading gaol by Reading town
        There is a pit of shame,
        And in it lies a wretched man
        Eaten by teeth of flame,
        In burning winding-sheet he lies,
        And his grave has got no name.

        And there, till Christ call forth the dead,
        In silence let him lie:
        No need to waste the foolish tear,
        Or heave the windy sigh:
        The man had killed the land we loved,
        And so he had to die.

          We sewed the sacks, we broke the stones,

          We banged the tins, and bawled the hymns,
          And sweated on the mill:
          But right on top of every brow
          Was a fucking great windmill.

    My cunning plan for Labour to win the 2015 General Election by a landslide is working very well indeed.

    Further evidence has emerged that the UK economy’s sliding towards a triple dip recession this year.

    Output contracted by 0.2% in the final quarter of 2012, according to an eagerly awaited indicator for the economy.

    Markit’s PMI survey for December found that activity in the powerhouse service sector shrank for the first time in two years.

    The index suggested that the economy as a whole has slipped back into contraction during the last three month.

    Markit said the figures, combined with mixed manufacturing and construction figures earlier this week, suggest Britain’s economy suffered a bigger drop than most other private sector forecasts.

    Separate Bank of England figures showed the biggest monthly rise in mortgage approvals since January 2012.

      Can some one explain the reason for the easy mortgage and business loan options the Government is backing?

      We got into this mess because of eagerness to sell silly mortgages. The unsustainable house prices meant all investment money went into property, not industry. We lost all the avenues to invest in businesses. Now the government is again giving out free money to keep the house prices rising and sustain the bias in investment choices. Further, they are providing easy money to businesses to avoid them engaging with the investors.

      If they let the house prices fall slowly then we could get back to the real closed loop situation of money going into the next advance in technology which fuels the subsequent advance. I can not understand the open loop dumping of money into bricks. Sorry, but my experience of start-ups, development and investment is from other countries. I do not understand this country.

          Here is an update on Regina v Huhne & Pryce. The published court list for Monday, mentioned upthread, is mistaken. Mr Justice Sweeney is hard at work on his partially delivered summing up in Regina v Bielawski and others. He is also writing a judgment on a very important (but somewhat tangential) interlocutory motion in Huhne & Pryce which was argued today. The next hearing in the latter case will therefore be at the Crown Court at Reading on Tuesday 8th January 2013, at not before 10.30 am, to coincide with jury deliberations in Bielawski and others.

          As for the content of these hearings, there is an order under section 4(2) of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 prohibiting the reporting of proceedings until further order, which was renewed by Mr Justice Sweeney today. So there can be absolutely no comment on that front.

          However, it is worth noting the following:
          (1) The trial will not open next week, but, if the case proceeds that far, on 14th January.
          (2) Few in the media have memories which extend as far back as the plea and case management hearing held before Saunders J at the Crown Court at Southwark on 1 June 2012. The basis of plea of defendant Pryce, which is in the public domain, remains worthy of note in and of itself.
          (3) Defendant Huhne has not entered a plea to the indictment T20127076, which means that his application to quash the indictment for want of evidence under paragraph 2 of Schedule 3 to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, and any application to stay the indictment as an abuse of process under the inherent jurisdiction of the Crown Court, have yet to be heard and determined.
          (4) The criminal proceedings are still very much active.
