So George Bush has generously selected a new President of the World Bank for us (subject to the formality of the Bank's Board of Directors approving him). He is Robert Zoellick. I wasn't that familiar with him so I was looking him up when I found that Lenin's Tomb has already thoughtfully provided us with everything we need to know about him. He certainly ticks all the right boxes:
|Member of PNAC||Check|
|Consultant to Enron||Check|
|Believer in American hegemony||Check|
Breathtaking arrogance and insensitivity
We can safely assume that the reputation and integrity of the World Bank will continue as it did before Wolfowitz's little indiscretions. Meet the new boss etc...
