John Quiggin makes a modest proposal:
Britain, France and Germany are busy trying to persuade Iran to abandon efforts to develop nuclear weapons, so far with little success. Cajolery and bribery having tried and failed, how about a bit of leadership by example? Two of the three parties in this effort have nuclear weapons of their own, even though they don’t face any conceivable threat of invasion. Perhaps if they agreed to disarm themselves, the Iranians would be impressed enough to follow suit.
Tired of staring eye to eye, Quiggin thinks it's time to blink.

Umm, if someone is strutting around my front bar announcing how he is aspiring to be the town "pug".. .. It would be the height of dickheadsmanship to "defuse" the situation by firing the bouncers?

Quiggin makes even the worst of my old university-colleagues look good!
