498 gets a roasting.

498 got a real roasting from the Supervisory Board this morning. Saw him in the corridor, eyes full of pain and bits of skin flaking off. They wouldn't even let him take the rest of the day off until he regenerates. So of course it's all crisis meetings now, and everybody is saying that of course they realised all along that it was going to turn out like this. And no, I am not sorting this one out for them. I have too much else on.

That's it

OK, that's it, the CPE is dead, and there goes the last chance of pushing the French over the same cliff as the British and Americans. Haven't seen 498 at all in the last few days. He'll have some explaining to do.

Getting worse in Paris

What a mess I've come back to. The CPE is basically dead as far as I can see, and this whole Sarkozy bank account in Luxembourg thing is turning into a nightmare. 498's little plan has now been exposed as a fraud, so it looks like Sarkozy may actually be strengthened as a result. What a shambles.

In Baghdad

Back from Baghdad. The Iraqis are happy to provide a brigade for the occupation. All they want is access to US technology for weapons of mass destruction. Why should we care?

Back in circulation

Well, I feel better I suppose. You usually do. But then whole Villepin thing is close to collapse now, and on top of it all I still have to go to Baghdad.
