Davos egofest

Further to this morning's dispeptic post about life at the trough, I have been spluttering my way through some of the accounts of festivities at Davos.

I particularly savoured the excellent David Smith's account of Gordon Brown's stately Davos progress (Times Online - Newspaper Edition:). Smith was chatting to Gordo, when..."we are interrupted. It is Bono, here for his bilateral meeting with the chancellor. The politician in his dark-blue suit and pink tie and the rock star in leather flying jacket and wraparound sunglasses hug one another as enthusiastically as long-lost cousins. "

They go on, I just can't- you'll have to read the squirming details for yourself.

Just remember- we're paying for this.
