    Trombony has actually said something sensible for a change!

    Why throw good money (U$D) after crap (the Real)?

    The real answer is to have new elections, cut the bollocks off the unions, drop the ridiculous interest rate which shackles business expansion and confiscate ALL Lula's money, he's a crook.

    It will never happen though!
