I get back to the UK and see that the British government must have taken Monocle’s description of the UK as a failed state to heart. This ia picture of yesterday’s City AM.
Fact following satire
David Cameron’s comments about private sector involvements in roads was eerily similar to Tyler Brûlé’s hypothetical takeover of the UK ministry of transport in his last few FT  columns. And whilst what Tyler and his colleagues have written makes a lot of merit it does feel as if the UK government is making up policy based on what reading material they had lying around the house the previous weekend.
