Little known facts about the Lord Protector, #1 in a series

Mr 'I've been getting on with the job' took eleven days from his enthronement to stand down as head of the IMF's policy advisory committee. This was by no means a non-job: "[It] sets the IMF's political direction and overall policy priorities".

Lest anyone be tempted to put out the bunting at there, at last, being a new head in Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, note that he is a finance minister in Prodi's Socialist government, and "He has been called the “intellectual impetus” behind the euro and the “founding father” of the new currency".
