Two wrongs have today made a right for the first time since the great depression. Previously, the most recent lows were reached in the oil crisis, where 2.4 wrongs made a right, but today that barrier was broken in a sharp sell off of virtuous actions.
The market's current lack of appetite for do-gooding and the relatively high price of wrongs have shocked commentators, many of whom were confident that smug fairtraders, Prius drivers and other punchably pious types would drive the market towards 3 wrongs making a right.
The Daily Mail and the Tories leapt on the chance to declare that the price was a testament to 'Broken Britain', regardless of the obviously vacuous cliche that represented. Labour responded by selling off the country's stock of broken promises, dodgy arms deals and other embarrassing historical moments at the very bottom of the market for wrongs, followed by a massive subsidy to prop up the market in rights.
