A breathtaking story with the likelyhood of tragic consequences. It is difficult to see how DSK can continue the delicate negociations concerning the problem economies of the Eurozone, with these charges hanging over his head. There seems to me the possibility of more economic instability in the weeks to come. Even if he is found innocent of the accusations it may well prove a step to far for the IMF, who had already reprimanded him back in 2008, for an indiscretion with a female member of his staff.
Seeing that DSK was viewed as probably the only candidate who could have defeated Sarkozy in next years Presidential Election it would be difficult not to believe that Mr Sarkozy may have a little smile on his face this morning, even allowing for the turmoil that these events may cause. On the political left, the conspiracy theorists are already smelling something foul. Meanwhilst, for me, the prospect of a similar re-run to the 2002 Election, where the choice will be between the 'right' and 'the extreme right' doesn't fill me with a great deal of enthusiasm...........to say the least.
