….but really. They’re making it easy for me over there. This time, according to the BBC, they misled shareholders about the nature of their 2008 Middle-East bailout.
Actually, whilst rather naughty (and certainly more than a “drafting error”, as they are trying to suggest), there’s nothing particularly heinous about this particular screw-up. I’m not sure anyone really believed there was much separation between the investors and their states. Most Abu Dhabi investment certainly seems to originate from sovereign wealth funds anyway.
So I guess this is a non-story. Which makes this a non-blog. But I’ve written it anyway.
