or the hope of some. I wonder why all and sundry seem so interested in Pak's latest dismissal of some 'dossier' put together by a few Indian mandarins. Its basically a question of realigning their goals.
We recognise that country's broke or is getting there soon enough. Why not offer them a performance linked bonus? The top income tax bracket in India is 33%; I suggest we offer them the top 3%, provided there are no terrorist attacks by their co-religious fundamentalists on Indian soil during the financial year.
Personally, i don't see how bad it could be. Currently I pay taxes and receive crappy government service and worse roads. Giving Zardari and gang a few financial incentives in addition to the largesse from the Pentagon may or may not change the situation; can't be much worse than it is now. For the Pakis, it'll be like getting paid twice from two masters for doing essentially the same job.
The wife was in town all of last month, hence the quiet on the blog and the absence of spread analysis. But the break seems to have done some good, took a 100 punt on the angels of anfield at 2.5 to beat the residents of stamford bridge. The pay-off cancelled out all previous losses for the season. God bless the Spaniard.
The weekend could have been better with the correct call of the Super Bowl winners but laziness to workout the right spreads was a refresher course in opportunity cost.
Am betting against the grain for tomorrow and have 10 down on the Lankans beating Dhoni's men at 2.2.
