    She is one of the elite's own. She was a member of Ban Ki Moon's High Level Climate Finance Panel after the Copenhagen climate conference, seeking to garner $100 billion a year from developed countries, for “green” projects in developing countries. Other members were Lord Stern, George Soros and Ciao Koch-Weser of Deutsche Bank. Co-chairman was Jens Stoltenberg, now head of NATO.

    The IMF is not an instrument of financial imperialism but rather the embodiment of fiscal incompetence.

    These figureheads are mental midgets of Lilliputian proportion.

    France has said they continue to support her.

    Well, she is a woman and they will be frightened of being accused of misogyny or some other 'ogyny'.

    I bet she has an 'ology' as well!

    She also has a husband who goes out in pink tights and wears a fur around his neck, no wonder the poor women looks like a shriveled up prune.

    @ ChrisR

    Why do you always comment on a woman's appearance? I am pretty sure at your very old age you are pretty shrivelled up in every sense. Is it your shrivelled brain that makes you so offensive? It is the start of dementia, that shrivelling of the brain.

    Wrong, she's divorced and with some other guy, so who is it who goes out in pink tights? Pics please!

    And why would France want to rock the boat when they have one of their citizens heading up the IMF?

    In a post mass eu exit world the alphabet soup of global governance entities are going to struggle for relevance going forward.

    @ EB


    Still chucking insults I see and stating things as fact when you have no idea of the truth. PL to the fore!

    I must however express my sympathies to New York having you there.

    @ DL

    Yes, I knew she was divorced and who could blame him?

    The pink comment was reported in a 'popular' British paper, perhaps her new 'guy' is actually a woman, you never know.

    Your mental deterioration is rapid, I see. I asked you why you always comment on a woman's appearance when it has nothing to do with the subject of the news item. (Ask your wife to help you understand the question if it is too hard for you).

    @ DL ChrisR is a great fan of the trashy tabloids. He even writes like them.

    @ ChrisR
    Why'd you say she was married then?

    And no pictures? I'm disappointed. But if her new guy was a woman, no doubt the tabloids would be vilifying her for that rather than sniggering about pink tights.

    He said he was giving up his subscription to the Telegraph, I think they weren't anti-EU enough for him.
