ECB Wants Its Pensions Adjusted For Inflation
The gall and arrogance of bureaucrats who should not have a job at all, let alone have a pension that no one else gets is rather stunning.

The personal representative of the central bank is now demanding that the employees pensions would be protected against inflation. It requires that an insurance against their own failure.
"Unfortunately, the pensions of the ECB's employees are not protected against inflation," said Carlos Bowles, a spokesman for the staff representatives, the FAS was the retirement of the ECB's staff organized a kind of pension funds.
"We do not understand why the leadership of the ECB refuses to protect our pensions against inflation," complains the Staff Committee. Even a case before the European Court was pending in this matter: A pensioner has complained with the support of the Staff Committee and the central bankers' union IPSO. Neither the ECB nor the Fed should exist at all. Both present themselves as "inflation fighters" when they are the source of inflation.
Now these arrogant asswipes want to be protected from their own policies while demanding cuts in the pensions of Greece, Portugal, and Spain.
