The German President, Christian Wulff announced today that he would resign, in the wake of accusations that he has, over the years, gotten just a little bit too much help from his friends.
This is not a surprise.
I'm wondering, though, whether this was really the best picture the Guardian could find to accompany its story:
Perhaps it was a wry commentary on the blindness of the powerful?
Anyway, it would all be very exciting...if the scandal itself were not so boring: even the name for the alleged wrong, 'Vorteilsannahme im Amt' sort of puts you to sleep.
I bet Silvio Berlusconi is laughing his ass off...
