Early morning my wife took me the country club and I watched Russian TV news while paddling on the walking machine. The announcer took out a roll of toilet paper printed with Euro notes and simulated cleaning his ass with them. Then he explained the LIBOR scandal in pure cold-war terms: the capitalists push down interest rates to help speculators, to reduce the working man's salary and to exploit in myriad ways the rest of the world. The female announcer asked: But LIBOR is a bank thing, why they rob banks? In the background appeared the pic of noted bank robber Sutton, who was quoted "Banks is where the money is". Then he extracted a toy tommy gun to visualize Sutton robbing banks. Why guns? Sutton: Because charm and personality does not work on banks. The joker-announcer: Sutton was wrong! Diamond from Barclays had no need of violence. Russian TV is venomous anticapitalist propaganda just like under Stalin, although more entertaining.
