Everyone's an economist and words like terror,despair, fairness and bailout, preferably in the same sentence, are the only way to describe it.

That some people will always roll over before their masters, and those people invariably succeed in politics.

Unfortunately what was intended was to turn a long sharp bend....the wrong way round a roundabout.

I have learned that the 3 B's (King Rat Bertie, Clown & Lendahand) are the three most honest people this side of Abe Lincoln and their knowledge of basic economics will put market experts to shame not matter how much experience they may have.

The political system is merely a soup kitchen for some very thirsty hobos.

The media are there to prop up the political system.

The foolish citizens will vote as instructed by the media.

The banks are of greater systemic importance than the foolish citizens.

Important people need to be protected from the recklessness of the banks.

The policial system will act as instructed by important people.

And back to the start...........
