So Goldman Sachs made a fortune from the Royal Mail Sale, who is actually surprised? It’s the embodiment of the scorpion and the frog, and nothing can change apart from allowing the scorpion to perish. How often do the tax ministers consult with financial experts in order to create new tax laws, only to find those consultants explaining to clients how to avoid the tax law they have just helped create.
The finance world will also fuck itself, look at the Lehman Brothers, the only crime is that we continue to let them get away with it. When society learns not to expect profit making companies to be moral. Until this day the scorpion will always get a ride on the frogs back!
