    Down & down she goes,
    Where she stops,
    Nobody knows.
    Almost feel sorry for them.
    C'est la vie.

    So, it starts, the final slide into monetary meltdown.


    Perhaps, but only perhaps, the electorate will wake up to the criminality of their 'government' and will elect somebody who will be honest and not rob them blind.

    BUT, it's The Dark Country! Ha, ha, ha.

    I wonder if 'No Money Pepe' ever made sure we got paid for all the electricity we sent them when their bicycle wheel dynamo failed during the last rainy weather? Stupid question.

    Given that the crooks are not paying for the imports from us it would be no different if they croaked big time.

    Chris, I just hope that bumbling Pepe will not help them out by committing the small nest egg we have in the BCU to Argentina in exchange for their worthless bonds, but it wouldn't put it past him

    @ 3 redp0ll

    I have been expecting it, but don't forget my tag for him: that came about when he couldn't pay the Judges (so everyone below them were stalled as well) AND he reneged on the teacher's pay rise which was already 18 months overdue.

    I don't see what has happened to improve matters in reality.

    Did you read the Travi (CERES) piece in El Pais and what Pepe called him? Basically the debt at 3% of GDP is completely unsustainable for the foreseeable future (decades or more) unless real action is taken as soon as Vasquez gets in and even then it will be a close call.

    Given the technical breakdown he presented I doubt the semi-literate and innumerate Pepe just didn’t understand it.

    I had real hopes for him when he became President but that soon changed I can tell you.
