Green Shoots of Recovery‏

Graham,

I am honoured to announce that you have been awarded the much-coveted prize of "First Journalist To Prematurely Use The Phrase Green Shoots Of Recovery" Award, a.k.a. "The Numpty".

Credit lines are being withdrawn faster than an Italian cavalry brigade, mortgage lending rates are lower than Barry White's voice with a heavy cold, Northern Rock and Bear Stearns have been privatised or sold for less than the price of a Britney Spears haircut and inflation is creeping up to levels where the Bank Of England MPC members are putting their therapists on danger money.

In the midst of all of these indicators, you have the good sense and prescience to call a "spring bounce". Talk about contrarian thinking; you are the master of it!

I don't usually buy the Sunday Telegraph, but from now on I'm cancelling my subscription to Private Eye and will be eagerly awaiting further satirical nuggets of pure gold from you Graham; you're funnier than Simon Cowell with testicular cancer!

Keep it up!

Excellent, very funny...I'd love to see 'the Numpty' - a variation on 'the oscar'. What form could it take?

Good spot. I got a failure message from the email to the Telegraph so I've punted it on to the one on his website.

Indeed, it was always a laugh when they used that 18 years ago.

John Major in particularly was as fond as that phrase as by all accounts he was of peas and a little bit of Edwina.

Amusingly, there was an article about Ronan O'Gara in the match programme at Twickenham on Saturday entitled "Green Shoots of Recovery". I was going to scan it and post it up here with some weak comment about it not taking long for the old cliches to come back. I never imagined some idiot journalist would have used it in a non-ironic way already.

As I've said before on here; LSD was 3 quid a tab. My "memory" of those days is more a conceptual term.....
