Implied textSayings: To rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic - To do something pointless or insignificant that will soon be overtaken by events, or that contributes nothing to the solution of a current problem (Wiktionary)
NotesNews: "... When George Osborne rises today to deliver the second Autumn Statement of his Chancellorship, he will be addressing a House of Commons, and a country, whose mood is very different not just from a year ago, but from April, when he presented his Budget. There is less hope than there was and more anger, along with a greater appreciation, perhaps, of how far this Government, even more than its recent predecessors, is hostage to forces beyond its control. ..."
