I have noticed a growing bad-bellus" trend among British journos in tha past months. Not satisfied with gloating about economic immigrants running to Britain from poor African countries (AND encouraging the government to rush them back to suffer in their 3rd world poverty), when their economies were booming, are now wishing the same poor countries who did not enjoy the boom would suffer the bust with the FIRST world. BUT if there is any justice in the world, this current crisis will be restricted to Europe and the US where they were plotted and midwifed. Nigerians grew their economy by themelves with their own sweat and their own kobo-kobo so we will thrive when they fail! Amen!
