The eighties coming back?

Serious trouble in the Middle East as Israel gets bogged down in Lebanon.

A lame duck President in Washington is unable to assert his will following allegations of unconstitutional activity.

In Britain an unpopular government faces a string of by-election losses.

And Sir Clive Sinclair brings out a dangerous and unlikely form of transport.

How much 2006 seems to have in common with 1985!
