My attention was drawn yesterday to this: posted in 2008.

It is interesting looking back as very little seems to have changed in four years, so the rut we were in has only established itself more solidly. The only major change (other than the cosmetic ) in the general scheme of things is that the war is over, and although promises were made and expectations were sky-high in the aftermath of victory, the folk to really benefit have been the usual suspects who are now so well entrenched in their positions of power that nothing seems to phase them.

I guess ‘que sera sera’ is one way of looking at the situation…
