IMF’s Strauss-Kahn | Ever closer union

19 11 2010

With a name that sounds like an electric guitar, Chief Strauss-Kahn of the world-renowned IMF has called on the leaders of European Nations to surrender what little autonomy they have left to the unelected Board of European Financiers so to avert future cash confidence crises.  Now remember that the IMF is an intergalactic organisation that can transfer, ahem, I mean transform Nation’s ailing economies into more productive industries so are not to be scoffed at.

Yet talk about twisting-arm politics.  Just so we’re clear, Dominique Strauss-Kahn said;

“The wheels of co-operation move too slowly. The centre must seize the initiative in all areas key to reaching the common destiny of the union, especially in financial, economic and social policy. Countries must be willing to cede more authority to the centre.”

Placing all our eggs in one basket, now isn’t there an old proverb regarding that???  Still, spiday’sThat would be a great leap forward… only we’re on the verge of the abyss” at least brought a sly smile to my mug.

No matter what democratic process you are subject to, the rule is the same.  Vote the same, get the same.
