Celebrating diversity at UBS

I was casually glancing through the Irish Slimes yesterday when my eyes fell on this photo. I had no idea who the man was but was instantly taken by the searing intelligence, firm gaze, honesty and integrity that shone through. I mused that, had I a few billion to spare I’d unhesitatingly hand it over to him for safe keeping, no questions asked.

Imagine my amazement then when, on reading further, I found that UBS had taken exactly the same view! Smart boys, UBS.

Oh wait! Reading still further it seems that this splendid chap has just lost them billions on the ‘trading’ (i.e. gambling) floor. Surely not. But yes. I confess I got it totally wrong. Just like UBS.

Maybe this celebrating diversity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Absolutely!!!! Jesus Christ, imagine even leaving this guy past reception, let alone get his paws omn billions. Fucking good enough for UBS.

Seriously Savant UBS were only using whitey computer rather than the Father of the Internet Emeagawli's superior machines otherwise this would never have happened.
In 1998 didn't the Swiss Banking Corporation merge with the smaller UBS after the LTCM incident and took UBS as a name to make one good bank from one good and one bad?

Franz said...

Gee Savant,

don't you know that applications at modern, transnational companies such as UBS have no photos on them? That would be racist. They never saw this guy before they hired him.

Due to my intimate connections in the world of high finance I am however in a position to let you all know how UBS found Mr Adoboli.

The story goes like this: One day a fax machine in an office in Zurich sprang to life. And out came this letter:

DEAR SIR,

URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL

I AM KWEKU ADOBOLI, SON OF THE LATE GHANAIAN HEAD OF STATE, GEN. SANI ADOBOLI. AFTER HE DEATH OF MY HUSBAND WHO DIED MYSTERIOUSLY AS A RESULT OF CARDIAC ARREST, I WAS INFORMED BY OUR LAWYER, BELLO GAMBARI THAT, MY HUSBAND WHO AT THAT TIME WAS THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA, CALLED HIM AND CONDUCTED HIM ROUND HIS APARTMENT AND SHOWED HIM FOUR METAL BOXES CONTAINING MONEY ALL IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE AND HE EQUALLY MADE HIM BELIEVE THAT THOSE BOXES ARE FOR ONWARD TRANSFER TO HIS OVERSEAS COUNTERPART FOR PERSONAL INVESTMENT.

(...)

THEREFORE, I NEED AN URGENT HELP FROM YOU AS A MAN OF GOD TO HELP GET THIS MONEY IN ACCRA GHANA TO YOUR COUNTRY. THIS MONEY, AFTER GETTING TO YOUR COUNTRY, WOULD BE SHARED ACCORDING TO THE PERCENTAGE AGREED BY BOTH OF US.PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MATTER IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AS THE GOVERNMENT WHICH MY LATE FATHER WAS PART OF IS STILL UNDER SURVAILLANCE TO PROBE US.

YOU CAN CONTACT ME THROUGH MY FAMILY LAWYER AS INDICATED ABOVE AND ALSO TO LIAISE WITH HIM TOWARDS THE EFFECTIVE COMPLETION OF THIS TRANSACTION ON TEL/FAX N0:xxx-x-xxxxxxx AS HE HAS THE MANDATE OF THE FAMILY TO HANDLE THIS TRANSACTION.

You can probably guess at what happened next... The bankstas know raw talent when they see it and whished to unleash Mr Adoboli on their trusting customers forthwith.

Little did they know that Mr Adoboli's talents work in mysterious ways and ALL directions.

Consequences? Who will pay for this I wonder?

Savant,

Word is that this guy's being used as a front for losses elsewhere in the bank. Like the fire in the disco to claim the insurance...UBS are in the shit either way.

Anon @ 18 September 16:49,

Good point. That makes me wonder how, going forward, diversity may be used by companies so they have an easy "fall guy" which the public will readily accept. Not right now of course, but in the future.

Franz said...

Sorry...totally off-topic, but this is TOOO rich:

Two burglars intrude on the house of one Mr Vincent Cooke, of Bramhall, UK. Mr Vincent happens to be at home, grabs a knife and fatally stabs one of the burglars. The other one flees and that should have been the end of it, one would think.

Well, then the police gets involved and decides not to race after the escaped burglar but investigate whether they can indict Mr Cooke for murder. Just to make sure that everything is right and proper, they arrest Mr Cooke for the duration of the investigation.

Now however, things take a turn from the merely bizarre to positively Kafkaesque: The mother of the deceased burglar decides to put in a mourning session in front of Mr Vincent's house of all places. That accomplished, she drops some flowers in the victim's/murderer's yard reading: "To my baby boy who will always be my baby boy. I will miss you, but never stop loving you. Mum."

I am utterly astonished to say the least. I know here in Germany things are going bad... But what are the English doing? Smoking crack while circling the cuckoo's nest in an airborne yellow submarine? Has the mad cow disease reared it's ugly head again?

Shaunantijihad said...

Does anyone smell a rat here? UBS surely are not that stupid? Perhaps he is a willing fall guy? You know the scenario: greedy bankers take on more risk than they should and it blows up in their collective face, so, rather than the board facing the wrath of the shareholders they look for some patsi, whose family back home suddenly "win the lotto", and the dusky dealer spends a few useful years in the slammer learning a real trade, like hotwiring corrupt bankers BMWs!

Occidental said...

A few people here are positing the fall guy option. Seems a bit unlikely. Much safer not to have a cultural enricher in that role.

Anonymous said...

UBS surely deserve to go under if they're stupid enough to entrust such a booner with billions, all in the name of diversity. Good riddance! Let's see more institutions similarly scuppered until the survivors finally get the memo.
(But I still hold to the "fall guy" angle.)

Franz said...

Mr Adoboli seems to be the fall guy for great things. Siemens has just made it known that they have started a bank run and pulled 500 million out of a French bank. No chump change indeed. Especially if said bank is levered up 20:1, 30:1 or ∞:1.

Maybe this is a replay of 2008 when they nabbed Madoff and everything went to hell thereafter. But hey, there's a face for CNN to point a camera at.

Croesus said...

That 500 million withdrawal doesn't mean that SocGen is going to fail (the Grench won't let it). Remember, Siemens is its own bank so maybe there are some funny things going on.

Awww, wittle UBS wost two biwwion...

That reminds me:

So the house in back of us is owned by a rich white bitch who lives in the next village over.

Three years after we bought our place, she rents her house to a off-white hispanic drug dealer and his brood. They trashed the place. After three years de law caught up with him, he's in jail, his brood is out.

What a relief!

Except the landlady said all wide-eyed and innocent "Oh I had no idea. They always paid their rent..."

Bullshit. She didn't want to know.

After three months of repairs, she next rents the place to a bunch of section 8, loud, fluent speakers of ebonics.

I want the hispanic drug dealer back.

And if I was sure I could get away with it, I would fucking burn the place down (while they're away.)

And burn it down again if SHE rebuilt.

Fucking liberal white rich bitch absentee landlord who doesn't give a shit what happens to the neighborhood as long as she gets her money.

I HATE her.

The section 8 contract itself may be sufficient revenge. The tenants can fight tooth-and-nail to keep residing, and they get free legal help.

At this early point, if I burned the place, I'd be doing the landlady a favor and she wouldn't even know it!

When it becomes more attractive to burn the property of the rich, whites will do so.

The Russians had the right idea in WWII.

The trouble here in what used to be England is that the law stating that employees must be paid in "coin of the realm" unless they specifically request otherwise has been ignored for decades, so we can't avoid using jew banks.

That said, I do try to get my money out as soon as I possibly can, even if it means stuffing the mattress with it.

(No, not literally, but I'd rather do that than risk a faked "bank failure" that would cost me every penny I had.)

Barclays even had an advert in my local train station a while ago saying "cash is on the way out"! They'd love that. No more window cleaners. No more odd-job men. No more boot sales. No private transactions of any kind unless everyone's set up to take credit cards.

Imagine buying a box of matches with a credit card.

More importantly, imagine handing your card to an affirmative action nigger every time you want to pay for something. How long would it take before your card details were used for something not authorised by you?

I've had that happen to me. Fortunately the card company spotted it, but they're still jews, and anyone who doesn't know already what the "kol nidre" is should look it up immediately, then when you've done that, try Googling "the protocols".

To learn more about the jews, click on my name for the most jew-aware blog I know. It's not my own, but it deserves all the support we can give it.

@ Kulak

Well, you pretty much burned the option of burning down the property by posting about it on the web.

Recently - at a company where I freelance - they nabbed an employee because he posted threats to life and limp of his employer.

Didn't post it on his employer's site, mind you. The guy was just venting in some forum. Apparently, he hadn't the slightest idea about being monitored. Well, he does now.

I'm honestly surprised that as of yet nobody has brought up the parallels between Mr Adoboli of UBS fame and the godking Obama of USA fame.

Both specimens were promoted to a place far, far north of where their natural abilities would have taken them.

In the case of Mr Adoboli his handlers entrusted him with a rather vast point-shaving operation, whereas the Godking Obama has been handed the nuclear football, among other things.

I hope and pray that the Godking's handlers are more up to snuff than their counterparts at UBS turned out to be.

While everyone's attention is focused on Bozo the Clown's vacuous smirk ...

How's your Swedish? It appears that Sweden is financing a good proportion of South Africa's ANC budget and debt. About half, in fact.

http://www.nationell.nu/2011/04/06/sverige-gav-1-miljard-till-anc-halva-organisationens-budget/

Secondly it also appears that South Africa has just been officially elevated to level 6 of the international Genocide Watch's list of levels of genocide.

There are eight levels, with the seventh or next level designated "Extermination".

http://www.genocidewatch.org/aboutgenocide/8stagesofgenocide.html

Level 8 is termed "Denial." Which, I might add, is not a river in Egypt.

Which means that Sweden is basically bankrolling the forthcoming slaughter in the good ol' RSA.
So ... would I be wrong in saying that I predict the replay of Sarajevo '94 in Sunny South Africa while the World's attention is grabbed by the forthcoming financial collapse?

While we're on diversity and such, let me direct you to the gift that keeps on giving .... Tuskegee.

http://dissectleft.blogspot.com/

A small note on the Tuskegee Syphilis study of the 1930s

The Tuskegee Syphilis Study has been widely condemned as an example of American racism -- and Leftists love it for that reason. It enables them to be "holier than thou". THEY would never do such an evil thing! It is usually portrayed as the U.S. government infecting black men with syphilis.

The truth is nothing of the sort, of course. The key fact that nobody seems to notice is that the study lasted for 40 years. 40 years? Shouldn't the men have died long before that? Once you ask that question, the truth begins to come out. The men recruited for the study ALREADY HAD tertiary syphilis. And in the tertiary stage the disease has usually been naturally "beaten" in some way. In other words, most such patients are no longer ill and live on rather as if they had never been infected.
THAT intriguing fact was what sparked the study. It was an attempt to get more information about the life history of tertiary syphilitics. Richard Shweder has all the details.

And the amusing thing is that the study was founded and carried out by "progressives". "Progressivism" was overwhelmingly dominant in pre-war America. And it wasn't even a government study initially. It was started by a private charity funded by the former chairman of Sears Roebuck, a Progressive Jew named Julius Rosenwald ...


Enjoy,

The Attack on Accidental Americans -- and would-be expatriates

Being American is a trap that is very difficult to escape. There's no Berlin wall but there is a big financial wall, courtesy of Obama. So too bad if Obama piles up debt for your children or devalues your savings

When Julie Veilleux discovered she was American, she went to the nearest US embassy to renounce her citizenship. Having lived in Canada since she was a young child, the 48-year-old had no idea she carried the burden of dual citizenship. But the renunciation will not clear away the past ten years of penalties with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).[1]

Born to American parents living in Canada, Kerry Knoll's two teenaged daughters had no clue they became dual citizens at birth. (An American parent confers such status on Canadian-born children.[2] ) Now the IRS wants to grab at money they earned in Canada from summer jobs; the girls had hoped to use their RESPs (registered education savings plans) for college.[3]

The IRS is making a worldwide push to squeeze money from Americans living abroad and from anyone who holds dual citizenship, whether they know it or not. It doesn't matter if the "duals" want US status, have never set foot on US soil, or never conducted business with an American. It doesn't matter if those targeted owe a single cent to the IRS. Unlike almost every other nation in the world, the United States requires citizens living abroad to file tax forms on the money they do not owe as well as to report foreign bank accounts or holdings such as stocks or RSSPs. The possible penalty for not reporting is $10,000 per "disclosed asset" per year.


From this one has to assume that, dumb as American politicians may seem, a lot of them get it.

This legislation -- and similar recent legislative atrocities -- are a sign of sheer terror on the behalf of the administration ... they see the cliff approaching.

Oh, yes.

PS I once mentioned a Sci-Fi novel of the sixties or thereabouts where the Aliens descended (as they do) and requested all Earth's negroids to take back with them to a land of milk and honey.

The theme of the novel was not so much hard Sci-Fi as whether it would be a moral thing to allow this ... repatriation, for want of a better word ... without really knowing just why the Aliens wanted the zots.

Anyone else ever read it?

Dim, though my memory of the book may be, it had a liberal hand-wringing sort of tone, but with an interesting unspoken subtext. At no stage did the author even suggest that the reason for the alien's desire was because of some hitherto unseen intellectual or social virtue possessed by the nogs.

Which in turn reminds me of a joke current in South Africa in the early seventies during the first fuel crisis.

The bad news was that the Martians had landed.
The good news was that they ate kaffirs and pissed petrol.

Somewhere along the line people lost the fact that if someone did something that brought down the bank you fired them and these were replaced by people "Where is my bonus?". We'll do it this one time.Then we'll do it this one time again until they get found out.
