No Surprises

21/10/11 -- To quote the stunningly brilliant "No Surprises" by Radiohead:

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't, they don't speak for us
I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises

Today's none surprise comes from news that there won't be any blinding flash of inspiration on Monday after all. "EU leaders are to hold another summit by Wednesday, because they will not be able to agree a rescue plan for the euro on Sunday," says the BBC.

To concentrate the mind a little, the word on the boulevards this morning is that France might get it's AAA credit rating cut as soon as this afternoon. With an All Black thrashing lined up for Sunday this might not be a good weekend to be French. Mind you, is any weekend a good one to be French?
