It’s an ill wind…

I’m going to write something that could easily be misunderstood, so let me spell out right away that I feel deeply for all those who have lost their savings or their jobs in the current financial crisis. I’m also aware of how much the cutbacks in funding have impaired valuable research on, e.g., health, food and environmental issues.

Nevertheless, I rejoice that the current crisis may mean that Donald Trump doesn’t get away with despoiling the countryside of Aberdeenshire, and that Rupert Murdoch is reported to have lost £3bn.

Who said schadenfreude was un-Christian?
