I remember that TV series "Yes Minister" and it was in part a parody of that same situation you ci ...

And to make matters worse the fat cats in charge of business use threats to get their way.. "do as I say or I move production, business overseas..." they play countries off against each other.

Why is it astonishing?  Look at your own behavoir if you want to see partisanship.

I don't vehemently attempt to show my own country in a negative light whenever possible. Why do think expatter does? And then does the complete opposite when it comes to China?

I almost feel sure that the US led financial disaster was engineered to kill the Euro ..........

And the ministers in the more fragile Euro countries got paid to go along with it .........

Or they just never went to school and attended a maths class ...........   

In fact could it be that they are all crooked  .........

I appreciate the point you implied that British politicians are sanctimonious hypocrites though. Or maybe its all politicians, everywhere. Bunch of t*ts.

A very wise pundit once said "You get the politicians you deserve" ... well world wide we have all got what we deserve a bunch of pond $cum who have yet once again proved that $hit does indeed rise to the top of the pond that is humanity.

Well there are certainly people betting on the demise of the Euro who will make a lot of money on its demise.  I don't know not there was a coordinated attack on it or not. What's certain is that when/if the Euro goes it will drag a hell of a lot of countries down with it. But I imagine the beneficiaries will be supping Pina Coladas in the Caymans and wont really care.

I feel so sad for the Euro zone and how it got there  ...........   

I just had a feeling I had to leave England in 1998 and it was a combination of numerous factors  .........

If you like I have benefited greatly from that instinct  .........

But I am in contact with back home and they have a decade or more of decline to come which I just do not know how to talk to them about  ........

It is a tragedy which was predicted in some ways back in the seventies  ........

And the Elite as you say have the benefit of it  .........

Never what I would have envisaged for a once such great country .......

Although I still disagree with how it got the 'great' bit .........   


Is there anything we can do  .........
