Quote o' the day

There is a 'Millionaire Fair' kicking off in Munich today, a sort of 'how to spend it' expo, with an entrance fee of €39 (an affordable £31).

The event and an anti-event hosted by the Münchner Sozialforum sound utterly tedious:

"Just a few meters away from the entrance to the venue on Thursday, Oct. 16, demonstrators will be auctioning off cheap labour, singing anti-capitalist songs and staging sketches lampooning the bank bailout. Inside, visitors will be admiring private jets, high-end cars, lavish jewelry and haute couture".

Here's the 7" radio play version of why the Sozialforum is not best pleased:

"Riches are the cause of poverty".

That is a direct quote from the MSF's spokesbod.


Anyone care to start?

(The 12" club remix - c/o der Süddeutschen Zeitung - is available here, in German)

As a footnote, they are so anti-capitalist that the umbrella organisation - World Social Forum - failed dismally to renew the wsf2007.org domain, which having been acquired by others now looks like this.


(Snigger. Although it looks quite social now..).

It has to be worth thirty quid to annoy those scumbags.
