The fix ain't in any more. Jean Claude Trichet will be facing fraud allegations after all. This chap, the governer of the Banque de France was tipped to be the new chairman of the European Central Bank. Of course some previous experience with fraud should be a useful qualification, but the ECB is worried about its reputation.

The old governor is about to go, meaning that some Greek chap is poised to take over.

One shouldn't laugh, no really.

Question: Why does the BBC have links to two outdated stories "Tremendous success" and "Euro soars vs pound" when not having anything about the decline of the Euro either before or the retrenchment during January when it started falling against the pound back to its old levels? It's a damn good thing that the BBC is in no ways biased.
