This is the saddest thing that I have heard for a long time.

Nationalisation of Austria's HGAA costs Bavaria 3.75 billion - The Local

The Austrian government on Monday nationalised real estate financier Hypo Group Alpe Adria (HGAA), costing the German state of Bavaria an estimated 3.75 billion.

Brilliant work to all the bankers involved, you just wrote off 3.75 billion of your money, and I'm broke because of your bumbling stupidity.

Get your fingers out of the pie and start earning your keep, because before you know it you'll be being nationalised and getting paid at civil-servant pay rate's, and you'll only have yourselves to blame creedy gunts.
