      You can’t prosecute politicians for making bad law. Stupid comment from Edgeler.

      “Still almost no prosecutions over matters leading to the GFC.”

      Largely because investing stupidly isn’t an actual crime.

        heres a few that are crimes …

        is it alright to launder drug money,
        is it alright to rig interest rates,
        is it alright to charge dead people for advice,
        is it alright to commit fraud on customers…
        add liars loans,teaser loans,robo signing and just maybe an impartial observer would say these are a pre meditated criminal,chicanery inflicted on society by rapacious,parasitic ,protected private bankers.

      How meat is recycled and sold to the poor
      Ever wonder what happens to restaurant leftovers? In the Philippine capital, Manila, meat is recycled from landfill tips, washed and re-cooked. It’s called “pagpag” and it’s eaten by the poorest people who can’t afford to buy fresh meat.

    The Genoa Bridge collapse has highlighted major similar problems with over 800 bridges in France as well as Italy.

    Poor quality concrete (due to corrruption in the industry) is apparently widespread. Footage shows how much seepage there is through the concrete with consequent rusting of the structural reinforcing within it.
