Bully boy

This is hilarious. This is a series of news flashes that have just come up on the news wires. All of the following happened within a seven minute period:

0727 SAUDI ARABIA MAY HAVE STARTED STUDYING A REVALUATION OF THE RIYAL

0732 GCC (Gulf Co-opartion Council) OFFICIAL SAYS NO GULF ARAB STATE CAN DROP DOLLAR PEG UNILATERALLY

0732 GCC OFFICIAL SAYS GULF ARAB CURRENCIES APPEAR TO BE BELOW THEIR APPROPRIATE VALUE AGAINST THE DOLLAR

0734 GCC OFFICIAL SAYS GULF ARAB STATES SHARE COMMON DESIRE TO REVALUE AND SHIFT TO BASKET OF CURRENCIES


No you can't, no you can't. Ok then, go ahead, it sounds like a good idea.

I like the new graphic you've put up on the top btw.

Thanks Wassim! You are the first to notice!
