Tim Harford Emails.

I get a very nice email from Tim Harford, the Undercover Economist at the FT. He says that this piece was, in part, inspired by one of my posts ragging on Mandelson and how he seems not to have grasped the most basic attributes of trade theory....complete tit that he is.

Thanks Tim! Very nice to know that a serious economist gets the point. Now all we have to do is get Nipple Boy himself to read the posts.

I particularly like the 'welcome to MY website' bit.

Sheesh. Commissioners. All the same.

Tim, are you trying to google bomb Mandy as a complete tit? If so, given it's one of those issues I agree with you on, I'll join you. Of course, I may be misunderstanding your intent...

Um, having just googled the phrase (serves me right for not checking before hitting post), it appears you've already got yourself to the top on it...
