Davos soldiers on

No pun intended.

They're still talking smack at Davos, while Tunisia showed support for Egyptian protesters.  British PM Cameron went out on a limb, telling the Davos World Economic Forum it that it was "frankly ridiculous" that the Doha round of world trade talks had so far limped on for a decade.

Good for you, Cameron.  Don't let the fact North Africa is on fire divert you.  Or that Cairo police beat up a BBC correspondent with steel pipes.  Or that ElBaradei was hit by police water cannons.  Reportedly he's under "house arrest" now.  Whatever the fuck that means in a Cairo under siege.
