Whose target is it anyway?

“The IMF downgrades its growth forecasts and casts further doubt on Osborne meeting his debt target” reports @JJ_159 via @Spectator_CH. @EmmaLangman suggests (sadly) that that it is ‘our’ debt target by association. “What Chancellor chooses, the country lives through.”

So let me consider perhaps the most famous target of all time – the apple which the Swiss tyrant Gessler required William Tell to shoot from his son Walter’s head. Gessler sets the target, William Tell hits the target, the son survives, Tell subsequently assassinates Gessler, and the Swiss people achieve their freedom.

Altogether now: dadadum dadadum dadadumdumdum …
