They are anything but.
Just ask Ben Ali, former MFIC* of Tunisia. He won't be hard to find. Just follow the trail of shit. Since he was ousted on Friday, he did the only thing possible: he ran away screaming like a choirboy with a randy priest at his heels. Where is he now? Who knows. Maybe he didn't organise his brave escape in time and now the boys are baying for his blood.
If he's lucky, he will end up begging the Saudi's to care for him into his dotage like that other model leader, Idi Amin Dada.
OOPS! The Jordanians look set to follow suit.
Or, take a look across the water at
Seriously, is he any better than Ben Ali?
Meanwhile, over the big water, the debt grows like a cancer. Sovereign debt has now topped $14 trillion. Which is almost one hundred percent of GDP. Misery loves company, they say, and soon our American cousins will be just as miserable as we are when (if) they all learn that they each owe $45,300 to some nameless, faceless, invisible loanshark. The MFIC* added around $4 trillion to the national debt. "Change we can believe in"? No change here, folks. Elect an idiot and they fuck up the finances. It's axiomatic. Mind you, even Monkey Boy only added $3 trillion when he was the MFIC*. The brown stuff is just about to hit the twirly thing.
Barry O'Barmy will copy his cousin Bobby Mugabe in Zimbabwe and the presses will roll.
They have to churn out more fiat currency. Where else will it come from? Thanks to the Federal Reserve, (which is neither federal, nor is it reserving anything), and Little Timmy Geithner, the printing presses will be singing like Elaine Paige on speed. And every time they print off a dollar bill, all others in circulation lose a fraction of their value. The Chinese must be pissing themselves in delight. Hu could have known?
OOPS! The EU need to top up the piggy-bank as well. Guess who will end up paying for this?
Just three examples of MFIC's around the world. All three have broken the toy they were given to play with.
Now the other kids are starting to ask why. They are starting to wonder just how clever they were putting up with these cretins for as long as they did.
Call Me Dave and Boy Wonder Clegg should start paying very close attention.
All is not well on the home front. No X Factor, no Strictly, and the tramline storyline in Corrie has been sucked drier than a witches tit.
Is the giant waking up, at last? Is he tired of being poked, prodded, tagged, watched, and of being ordered around & robbed blind every month?
I seriously fucking hope so.
*MFIC = motherfucker in charge.
