Neo-con, neo-liberal, neo-corrupt

Well lets all fight corruption and nepotism by giving well paid jobs to our wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends...or other significant others, hey what's worse than corruption/nepotism, well war, but war is the health of an unhealthy system.

Here is what Caroline Lucas has said:



MEPs BACK GREEN CALLS FOR WOLFOWITZ TO BE SACKED FOR WORLD BANK CORRUPTION
SCANDAL

EURO-MPs in Strasbourg have supported a Green proposal calling on the EU
Presidency to push for the withdrawal of Paul Wolfowitz as President of the
World Bank in the light of the current cronyism scandal.

Speaking after the vote, Green Party MEP Caroline Lucas said:

"By digging in his heels and refusing to resign as President of the World
Bank, Wolfowitz is dragging the whole organisation into disrepute and
further undermining the credibility of its anti-corruption policy. If he
won't jump himself, he must be pushed.






"The European Parliament has today added to the mounting pressure to end
Wolfowitz's chequered tenure at the helm of the World Bank by calling on the
EU Presidency to press the US government for Wolfowitz's withdrawal. We hope
the issue will not be brushed under the table at the forthcoming EU-US
summit."

The move to sack Wolfowitz was contained in a resolution on EU-US relations
ahead of the forthcoming summit, which will take place next Monday (April
30th).


ENDS

Note to Editors:

In the resolution on transatlantic relations, the European Parliament "calls
on the EU Presidency and US government to signal to the President of the
World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz, that his withdrawal from the post would be a
welcome step towards preventing the Bank's anti-corruption policy from being
undermined;" (Par 18).
