Cameron channels Talking Heads

Don't worry about the mixed metaphors, feel the vibe, man.  The Prime Minister goes metaphysical:
"Britain may not be in the future what it was in the past because the truth is that we are in a global race today and that means an hour of reckoning for countries like ours – sink or swim, do or decline," he will argue.
It reminds me of that song by Talking Heads:
Well we know where we're goin'  But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowin'  But we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children  And we know what we want
And the future is certain  Give us time to work it out
The name of the song?  'Road to Nowhere'.  Appropriate enough, really ...
