  4. Bravo Michael.

    Odious is not the word….these conceited architects of mindless predation deserve all the discredit that Europe can muster. The whole system is showing signs of extreme fatigue. Not exactly the sophisticated and finely calibrated Swiss mechanism they imagine it to be.

    It takes real talent, actually perverse economic genius, to paint yourself into a such a difficult corner, that the only option is to dismantle the entire building in order to repeat the same foolhardy manoeuvre all over again.

    The moral of this classic farce, is never to trust a banker with an enormous brush who actually believes that is all it takes to be an accomplished painter.
