Breaking News ¡¡¡Viva the Judiciary!!! 33 Spanish Bankers Indicted
Finally, finally, finally. Today 33 bankers involved in the Bankia scandal have been charged. Charges include:
1. falsificación de cuentas (faking the numbers)
2. administración desleal (working against the interests of the company for personal benefit)
3. maquinación para alterar el precio de las cosas (conspiracy to alter market values)
4. apropiación indebida (embezzlement)
I believe that after Iceland, this is the first major prosecution of bankers in the world and it only happened because of Rosa Díez’s UPyD. Chapeau bas, Señora. Generally politicians like to grandstand in public and then quietly take donations in private. The two major parties, PP (right) and PSOE (left), have sat quietly while serious crimes were committed against the citizens they claim to represent. In fact Minister José Manuel García-Margallo was quick to express lament at the indictments. Fortunately, the public prosecutor disagrees with him and the minister doesn’t get to dictate to the judiciary.
I’ve decided to coin a new phrase to be used if Mr. García-Margallo ever crosses my path:
Go frack yourself in the ear with a heeldo.
P.S. If you want to have a real laugh, google heeldo… a picture of one showed up in my junk mail and I haven’t stopped laughing since! I’d be curious to know what caption Brad the Comedian would put on that picture. In fact, I dare him to do a sex toys post!!! BTW, thanks for the award, Brad!
