Meanwhile Back At The Ranch

No sooner than the recent fuss has diminished than a worse media fate awaits us.  Yes it is the Party Conference Season, usually a time to go to the cartoon channels for some sense and serious political philosophy.

But all is not well and the Telegraph today gives a ten point summary of some of the main things that the doomsters are worried about.  Each of them is a problem.  Add to that the Baltic Dry Index and it is not looking good.

We have our leaders dealing with the fallout from the Scottish vote, the conferences, the election strategies, the Middle Eastern issues and some EU matters.  Yet there are problems ahead that could affect everything.

Where are the special committees, groups of experts, action plans and the rest with whom they should be involved that are monitoring the markets and institutions to keep up to date and to work out the best means of dealing with what might unfold?

Is it all being left to George Osborne, Vince Cable and sundry passing traders, banksters and oligarchs in the night?  With maybe some input from the money pages of the Murdoch press or hot tips for personal Trusts by friends in the know?

As well as these matters there are a few other things going on that are being quietly disposed of while attention is elsewhere.  We do not know and can only rely on the likes of "Private Eye" and a handful of reliable internet sources for the scraps they can pick up.

Look for what is not there and for what is in the spaces.

    The Simpsons is my favourite although Grandson prefers SpongeBob Squarepants. I've told him it betrays a certain lack gravitas but he won't listen.
