The situation here is as pathetic after the meltdown as it was before. The media is owned by a postbox on Cayman, sustained by a dame who inherited the nations fish stocks, and edited by a master crash-man. It is understandable, that reporters do not bite the hand that feeds them, but even the state-factory’s mantra was all through the impeachment proceedings, – the former PM is ohh! so innocent. – Surprisingly the court did not agree.
Lost currency reserve? What, where? Offshore kronas are said to be the greatest single threat, asking for ownership or even Tobin tax is in bad taste, so is asking about transfer pricing. Every sperm is sacred.
François Hollande, said that they were dealing with a faceless money power, but then he would. “They” do have a name, face, and address, but “they” just love their impunity, privacy and bank secrecy.
After successfull removal of the FSA’s Director, the undermining of the Special Prosecutor is in progress, this too does not warrant any attention.
Even the new constitutional draft takes money out of reach for the people, so continues the legalization of private profit and public loss.
The postbox on Cayman has now revealed it’s preferred presidential candidates.

We could empty our overcrowded prisons in a day if we used the same justice for all.
Corruption in a small society takes on a contracted form of mutual insurance.
It was said that all the players in the meltdown could fit into a restaurant, the difficulty is that so can the jurors of their peers

Not a day passes without our minders telling us about our true benefactors, those who come baring investor gifts: jobs, development and yes financial growth – all this at no cost to us – Hallelujah.
Somehow our narcissistic media missed this insignificant and ‘slanderous’ report.
“From Kazakhstan to Australia, taking in the views of Zambia, war-stricken Congo and Angola, cutting across from Siberia to Iceland is a network of mining and metals companies with a catalogue of environmental and community abuse in their wake.
