The Perpetrators Go On And On.
Don't spend too much time dwelling on these two arseholes. The picture is just to illustrate how failure on a gargantuan scale is still rewarded. The manufactured and hypocritical furore over Hester's contractual bonus scheme is pure smoke screen tactics.
In today's Sunday Times the emphasis on Davos is quite unusual when hitherto these jamborees have been more shadowy. However we are allowed to glimpse the global economic change underway. The declining influence of a debt ridden, pointless, introspective EU is a glaring blot on the landscape.
This failed conglomerate of unelected, boring bureaucrats such as the likes of Rompuy and Barosso, is there for all to see. A power grab by a dull, copycat wannabee business moguls, bunch of inadequates, lumbers on. They preach, hector, lecture, posture and pretend total certainty of their own superiority. How delusional is that?
The meme at Davos is leave them to it. They are the architects of this failed Federalism. They have no ammunition left. Their cork pop guns and water pistols aren't the weapons they thought they were. The pursuit of a vast arsenal of cork regulations and aqua fire power is exhausted.
So, like those two creatures of mediocrity above, they will slope off sooner or later. We are already living their legacies, of course. Not only that, until this evolved protectionist bloc of debt mountain is broken up, its constituent parts remain locked in glaciers of frozen economic time warps.
The one big irony is that the global powerhouse potential of Germany has also been frozen on this same mountain. Reliant on dominating Europe economically they took their eye off the global game play. I have often said and I say it again, Greece may or may not leave the euro zone but Germany will be the one to dissolve this terrible failure that is The EU. Someone has to show a lead. I suspect only the German people will have the balls.
Since the EU hierarchy will still remain wealthy, whatever the suffering of we little people, goes without saying. Still, time will tell but I hope to live long enough to watch the possibility develop where, just for once, failure is punished. It's known to happen in China! Be warned, Mandy!
