It's utterly disgraceful what happened there.
The weird part is that it's a franco-belgian bank since the 2008 crisis with both sides needing to revamp and restructure. The Belgian side did just that and were back to health. The French side didn't and were in deep financial trouble so their solution was to channel the Belgian profits to the French side which was not enough to cover their losses and left the Belgian side deprived.
(the sad, sad part is that a similar scenario takes place in another franco-belgian bank BNP Paribas Fortis. Belgian profits flowing to cover losses in Paris)

Those bonuses given to top management: one of them said in April this year: "we deserve it". You have to have some nerve to say that.

To make matters worse, the Belgians offered a garantee of 54 billion euro for those bad bonds and the French only 33 billion euros. I have no idea how spineless exactly the Belgians were and how this can be seen as fair.

Bunch of utter mugs running this country, I'm telling you.
And we still don't have a government about 530 days after the elections and yet, the flipping Italo-Belgian leading the negociations "wants more time".
Aaargh.
It is totally unfair for Belgium to be suffering at this point, after all it is not well known but Belgium dealt with an enormous debt burden during the 90s. At the time it was the highest in Europe by far, I think it counts a lot that they could do it.

No problem. It’s different in the U.S. and Canada. I can never remember Canada’s. Ours is the fourth? Thursday in Nov. Theirs is earlier because they have to have it before 18 feet of snow is on the ground and they all move into their igloos.

It used to be slightly under 140% (debt vs gdp) mid-90s which was a total embarrasment but they worked it down to about 90% which took a huge effort.

One of the problems we encountered in the next decade was a switch of government (the christian democratics made room for a liberal government) and instead of continuing the good work on breaking down the debt even further, they stopped the effort so that the debt got stuck at 90%

With the current crisis, not helped by spineless morons running the country, it's again around 100%.

Those bank people and their bonuses, I mean cannot they really take these bonuses away or smth?
Btw I know you're all eager to know that the Lithuaninan bank criminal was arrested in the UK. I hope they can make all those bank criminals pay! But the Snoras Bank is bankrupt.

Sorry about that. Richie in the stands. I need to go to Richie forum for the latest news, why was was he in London, just to support his best mate Tsonga? Nice way to spend a vacation.
And I know Richie appreciates Rafa too.

Pffft...if only. Like I said earlier, most of those bank criminals are smart enough to make sure that they use enough loopholes to stay legal.

Re: Rafachat vol. 75: Cats and Football Forever and Ever!

Oh, and Betty was asking about buying clothes online.
Andreea is brave and smart. I have bought from like 2 Estonian websites and no the clothes don't always look exactly like on the photos so I've been disappointed a few times, the size hasn't really been a problem but I stick to buying simpler and cheaper things online, and I would never buy shoes online, even the ones I've tried on in a shop have turned out to be not suitable in the end.
