..to make a shepherd drop his crook and fook his flock.

a Madison avenue fat-cat agenda to gentrify the last pockets of wilderness into the glossy brochures of IT readers wet dreams, complete with spas and health farms and organic sick-bags in case an impoverished local escapes from the favella and peeks over the wall. We'll get a depopulated Eiredisney as we dress up as jarveys and leprechauns and subsist on the trickle-down tips of the jet-setting beeeautiful peeple.

This ex-pacifist is goin recommissionin soon.

'Leading figures', indeed. Up the garden path.
