The Generosity of our Betters

Gee the Europeans sure showed us:


TSUNAMI-struck Thailand has been told by the European Commission that it must buy six A380 Airbus aircraft if it wants to escape the tariffs against its fishing industry. While millions of Europeans are sending aid to Thailand to help its recovery, trade authorities in Brussels are demanding that Thai Airlines, its national carrier, pays £1.3 billion to buy its double-decker aircraft.

How ironic, that’s almost the same amount the EU has pledged to the entire Tsunami affected region. Though I'm sure they're only collecting so they can be even more generous in the future. Just think how generous we could be if we gave the same money over and over!
