For all of those readers who aren’t students of the 1930s – and why wouldn’t you be, given that we seem to be hell-bent on recreating it? – all I can say is, well.
Be warned, the last time foreign creditors tried to circumvent the democratic institutions of a sovereign nation in order to impose ever-increasing deprivation on its working and middle-class population, via a series of coalition governments lacking clear mandates to do so, it did not end well.

Alas, no time for a long post today, as I have to keep my ire in check for screaming at Lucas later. In the meantime, let’s all gather together to enjoy this:
The sending-off changed the game, no doubt about that. They would have never won if we had 11 men. They got him sent off — typical Germans.
They surrounded the ref and got him sent off. I thought they were typical professionals in the way they saw the opportunity and forced the referee. The ref wasn’t going to do anything but they forced him to get a card out. But we’ve seen that before from teams like that.
Poor old Fergie.
