Yet that's no consolation for those people who are losing their jobs right now. But the real point is that this recession is hitting very quickly. Unless the government acts quickly then redundancies will already have been made and it will be too late.
And then came psychologist Oliver James. I can only assume this will become a YouTube moment. It's difficult to capture the intensity of James's anger in a blog post but in essence he suggested that McNulty and May should hang their heads in shame for their role in what he called "Blatcherism". They were "disgusting" he said. Quite a moment, but I couldn't help thinking that McNulty was a good sport for being there.
