The reason why the world is in financial turmoil

President Lula da Silva of Brazil has declared that the current world financial crisis has been caused by 'white and blue eyed people'. He was speaking at a meeting prior to the G20 Summit next week.

As a white, brown eyed person I'd like to say to all of you white, blue eyed people: How could you?

And as a green-eyed white person I second that.

My sentiments exactly (hazelnut-colour eyed white woman). I blame the rest of my family, all white with blue eyes!!! Ciao. A. PS Any news from the doctor???? Do you feel a bit better?

"... white and blue-eyed people"? What? One eye white and one eye blue? Or both eyes a stripey combination?

Iota - you have a point. I wonder who these people are?

Well usually single mums are blamed for everything. Looks like I've also caused the financial crisis. I thought I was supporting it with my frequent over-spending. I'm off to get some colour contact lenses to hide my guilt!

Incidently, doesn't Gordon Brown have brown eyes?

Aaargh, Rosie - so it's you! A blue eyed single mum, you should hang your head in shame!

Antonella - I have to go back to the doctor this week to get my results - fingers crossed!

Nice way to absolve an entire nation of blame though. Brazil is in the clear then is it?

As a hazel eyed white girl I have been conscientiously been doing my bit to spend my way out of the recession so I'm in the clear then. Phew.
