Sorry Tharman fans, more qualified man of colour available

FT reported that underperforming Credit Suisse CEO (share price has collapsed since he became CEO), Tidjane Thiam, could be a candidate to head the IMF. Facts: the Franco-Ivorian CEO has long been linked with the post as a possible dark horse candidate (No pun intended: he like Tharman are long odds candidates). He has been Ivorian fiance minister and CEO of a British insurer. His academic credentials are also a lot better.

It quotes his friends as saying say he would be an ideal choice, enabling the IMF to make a switch to an emerging markets nominee that could still be acceptable to France. (French nationals have held the managing director role five out of 11 times since its post-war foundation).

As readers will know, the post of IMF head, is in the gift of the Europeans. They have always given the post to white-skinned Europeans. The Americans choose the World Bank CEO has at least gifted the post to an American with a yellow skin.

The BJP in Hindustan India and Tamil supremacists around the world are still smarting that an ethnic East Asian became World Bank president (They thanked the Gods he wasn’t an ethnic Chinese, only etnic Korean): hence their alleged support for Tharman.

Weekend reading. Tharman the wannabe stand-up comic:

Property: Tharman trying to crack jokes again

Tharman trying to tell jokes again?

Tharman joking again? Or trying to BS us?

Tharman talks cock yet again

Will Hougang make the PAP moan the inflation blues, not joke abt it?
