More Video

So, you think things are improving, the economic crisis is easing and we are on the road back to normal. I'm sure this little video will make your day.

Listen carefully at 1:30 into the speech by the new President of the European Union (I can't spell the name) on the 19th November, 2009.

Here is the most important part of the speech.

"We're living through exceptionally difficult times – the financial crisis and its dramatic impact on employment and budgets, the climate crisis which threatens our very survival, a period of anxiety, uncertainty and lack of confidence," he said in his maiden press conference. "Yet these problems can be overcome through a joint effort between our countries. 2009 is also the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step toward the global management of our planet."

I think any further comments are unnecessary.
