Our sins, their sins

Today's papers showed Rahul Gandhi nodding off during the finance minister's budget speech. Apparently, he was not the only MP guilty of this. Take heart, my fellow Indians, politicians elsewhere are capable of worse.

Japan's finance minister is due to resign after having appeared drunk at a recent G-7 news conference. The minister denies he was drunk. He ascribes his performance- he slurred and appeared to fall asleep at one point- to cold medicine.

Well, even if the man had too much sake, you can't really blame him, can you? The Japanese economy turned its worst performance in 35 years, shrinking by 3%. Enough to make any finance minister hit the bottle.
