Alistair in Wonderland

According to today's City AM newspaper in London - which holds itself up as the City's second best financial paper:
Chancellor Alistair Darling will hold back from a new fiscal stimulus programme in next month's Budget, he signalled yesterday. Addressing foreign journalists, Darling hinted that tax cuts and spending programmes would instead be introduced...
It doesn't say where the foreign journalists were from, but I suspect they spotted the surreality in this statement a bit sooner than City AM did.

The actual statement is rather less egregious than the above mangling of it.
