This Dominique Strauss-Kahn business - couldn't have happened to a nicer chap, could it? Another Master of the Universe, believing himself untouchable, brought down by his unruly loins. But to the girdle do the gods inherit... It's said that his aides warned him to amend his predatory ways while in the US, where you can't reasonably expect to get away with that kind of thing (unless your name's Kennedy). Clearly he took no notice, and his imagined untouchable status cut no ice with the no-nonsense judge who dispatched him forthwith to Rikers Island.
The beauty of it is that this will destroy the French Socialists' chances of winning anything for quite a while, and, with Monsieur S-K (and his deputy) gone from the IMF, that body will come to its senses and stop the endless bail-outs of Europe's basket cases. In the long run, Monsieur S-K's ill-advised pounce might kill off the Euro, at least in those countries where it was never going to work. Here's to a future of drachmas, escudos and cheap Mediterranean holidays - merci, monsieur!
