Beattie on Doha


Alan Beattie:

As returns from the dead go, the fact that the so-called “Doha round” of global trade talks was revived in January of this year was a comeback to rival that of Lazarus.

But unless (a subject on which the New Testament is silent) Lazarus spent the year after his miraculous recovery standing on the spot, squabbling irritably and periodically threatening to relapse into unconsciousness, it seems unlikely that the analogy can be continued beyond the initial resurrection.
