No triple A, just triple dip

Apologies for the poor photo, but this cartoon in the Sunday Times was an amusing combination of Lichtenstein's 'Whaam!' (currently on show at Tate Modern) and news that the UK has lost its AAA credit rating.

We seem to be heading for a triple dip recession here. Regular readers may remember that AHN predicted this back in 2011. Hopefully, HM Treasury might think that if even obscure art dealers could have told them that their economic policy was wilfully, entirely, idiotically useless misguided, then it's time for a rethink. But that's some hope. Instead, it's time for AHN to again remind readers in government what John Maynard Keynes, he of sound economic sense, looked like. The below portrait of him is by the great cartoonist, Sir David Low, and belongs to the National Portrait Gallery.
