"The lamps are going out all over Europe ..."
How astute of David Cameron to seize Sir Edward Grey's words as the keystone of the centenary commemoration of the start of the Great War. What we had all mis-ascribed as a hopeless shambles of a government energy policy that will leave us with rolling blackouts and power cuts in 2014 was in fact a perspicacious preparation for Cameron's 'reality war experience'. Together with coming food shortages and rationing and draconian restrictions on alcohol sales, Dave is determined we won't forget 2014.
