Abstract

Is it me or is news getting more surreal? Today we have fake Lib Dem MPs resigning on live radio, BBC presenters mangling ministers names into obscenities, and the US government telling its workers not to read Wikileaks because the information is still confidential. Suddenly, the French philosopher who argued that the Gulf War never happened seems to be on to something.
